WordPress Site Backups
Keep a safe copy of all your content, data, media, and WordPress settings.
Why do I need a backup?
Doesn’t my host already keep a copy of my site? Most likely yes (and, if it turns out that your host doesn’t, we strongly recommend switching to one that does).
But if your site is in any way important to you, your organisation, your brand, or your revenue, we definitely recommend not putting your eggs in one basket.
Bad things have been known to happen to the best of us:
- Hosting companies sometimes experience outages or can themselves be victims of malicious attacks.
- Accidental error or rogue employees might result in deletion of your site files and content.
- Unauthorized access, hacking, or malware could take down your site.
Having a “spare key” for your site is invaluable if something happens and if something does go wrong you can rest assured that Jetpack has a backup of your site in a secure, off-site, third-party location.
- Automatic daily or real-time backups of your entire site with unlimited storage space.
- A 30-day or unlimited archive of all your backup history.
- A backup service provided by the people who back up tens of millions of sites on WordPress.com.
- Expert, priority support by our Happiness Engineering team to help you get back up and running.
- Backups are stored in secure, off-site locations completely separate to your hosting provider.
- Easily restore or migrate your site from a previous backup.
