Don’t Risk Anything Less

Your backups are worth the same as your entire investment in your website. The day may come when you get hacked, or your hosting company does, or they go bust – without good backups, you lose everything. Do you really want to entrust all your work to plugins with only a few thousand downloads, or that has no professional backup or support? Believe us – writing a reliable backup plugin that works consistently across the huge range of WordPress deployments is hard.
