If you build WordPress sites, you know the importance of keeping them up and running smoothly. But let’s face it, even the best-laid plans can go awry. That’s why having a reliable backup system in place is crucial — and that’s where Jetpack VaultPress Backup comes in. This powerful plugin is the ultimate solution for your client’s websites, providing peace of mind for everyone.
Picture this: you’ve just finished building a stunning website for your client, and everything is going great. But then, a hacker strikes out of nowhere, and the site goes down. With traditional website backups, it could take all day to restore the site to its previous state.
You’ll have to work to find an uncompromised version that you can restore, which sometimes involves digging through files or working with the host’s support chat. Then, you’ll need to use a tool like FTP and phpMyAdmin to restore both the database and files. And if you don’t have an uncompromised backup on hand, then there’s even more work involved to get the site to its most recent version.
But with VaultPress Backup, you can restore the site in minutes, even if it’s completely down and you’re not near a computer. With real-time backups, everything that happens on the site is saved, and you can reference the activity log to determine the exact point to which you want to restore. This enables you to protect the site’s assets, even if you recently made changes or a client is constantly adding new posts.
The benefits of VaultPress Backup don’t stop there. As an agency, you know that time is money. And with traditional website backups, you could be wasting a lot of both. Hosting providers often charge extra for backups, and backing up and then restoring a site can be a time-consuming process.
With VaultPress Backup, you get top-of-the-line backup services at a fraction of the cost, and one-click restores mean you can get your client’s website back up and running in no time.
And it’s not just your agency that benefits from Jetpack VaultPress Backup. Your clients will love the peace of mind that comes with knowing their website is protected and that their critical data — like orders from a WooCommerce website — is safe and sound.
Frequently asked questions
Now, let’s answer some FAQs about website backups and how Jetpack VaultPress Backup stacks up against traditional hosting provider backups.
What is a website backup?
A website backup is a copy of all the files and data on a website, including the database. This can be used to restore the website if something goes wrong, such as a hack or a coding error.
What does a typical hosting provider back up, and how often?
Many hosting providers only back up a website once a week or less frequently. Some only back up certain parts of a website, such as the database. This can mean that if something goes wrong, you’re unable to restore the site in full.
What does VaultPress Backup back up, and how often?
VaultPress Backup creates full copies of a website, including the database and all files, in real-time, so you always have the most recent version of the site. This means that every new comment, post, order, or other important change is secured safely as soon as it happens.
What amount of control do you have over host backups vs. backups from VaultPress Backup?
With a traditional hosting provider backup, you often have limited control over when and how backups are created and restored. But with Jetpack VaultPress Backup, every change is saved in real-time, and you can choose which elements of the site you want to restore.
What are the chances of lost or corrupted data for each type of backup?
The chances of lost or corrupted data can be higher with traditional hosting provider backups, as they may not be created as often and may not include all parts of the website. With VaultPress Backup, real-time backups minimize the risk of lost or corrupted data. VaultPress Backup stores copies of your backups in the cloud, too, which means you’ll never lose any site or store data.
Jetpack VaultPress Backup is built and maintained by Automattic, the people behind WordPress.com, so it’s designed with WordPress sites as the sole focus. With this level of expertise, you can rest assured that it’s a stable, reliable solution for every site.
How long does a hosting provider usually keep backups vs. VaultPress Backup?
It depends on the hosting provider, but many only keep backups for a few weeks or even less. Jetpack VaultPress Backup retains a history only limited by the generous amount of storage included with your plan.
