UpdraftPlus simplifies backups (and restoration). Backup into the cloud (Amazon S3 (or compatible), Dropbox, Google Drive, Rackspace Cloud, DreamObjects, FTP, SFTP, SCP, WebDAV, OpenStack Swift and email) and restore with a single click. Backups of files and database can have separate schedules.

Top-quality: UpdraftPlus is the highest-ranking backup plugin on rankwp.com (ranks in the top 40 out of 30,000 WordPress plugins for quality on rankwp.com - last checked 21 September 2014).

Tens of thousands of users: widely tested and reliable (over 1.8 million downloads). Ranks in the top 100 most used of all WordPress plugins on rankwp.com. Millions of backups completed!

Don't Risk Anything Less

Your WordPress 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.

UpdraftPlus Addons And Premium

UpdraftPlus Backup/Restore is not crippled in any way - it is fully functional for backing up and restoring your site. What we do have is various extra features (including site cloning), and guaranteed support, available from our website, updraftplus.com. See a comparison of the free/Premium versions, here.

If you need WordPress multisite backup compatibility (you'll know if you do), then you need UpdraftPlus Premium.

Professional / Enterprise support agreements available

UpdraftPlus Backup/Restore is written by professional WordPress developers. If your site needs guaranteed support, then we are available. Just go to our shop.

Are you multi-lingual? Can you translate?

Are you able to translate UpdraftPlus into another language? Are you ready to help speakers of your language? UpdraftPlus Backup/Restore itself is ready and waiting - the only work needed is the translating. The translation process is easy, and web-based - go here for instructions: http://updraftplus.com/translate/. (Or if you're an expert WordPress translator already, then just pick out the .pot file from the wp-content/plugins/updraftplus/languages/ directory - if you scan for translatable strings manually, then you need to get these functions: _x(), __(), _e(), _ex(), log_e()).
