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, with no annoying omissions. What we do have is various extra features, and guaranteed support, available from our website, updraftplus.com.

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

Professional / Enterprise support agreements available

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 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()).
