Reviews

The Best Backup Plugin on the Market with a Great Support-Team

This is the best Plugin for Backups that I have ever used. The money you pay for the Blogvault Plugin is well invested. For me personally one of the most important rules is: If you want quality you have to pay for it and for this one is worth the money. Not only that you are able to backup your website, you can even test the backup copy on one of their servers before installing it on your website. Before acquiring this plugin two years ago, I have tested free of charge plugins and even some other plugins from the competitors. Neither the free ones nor the fee-based ones imposed on me.

Recently I had some issues with it (which Plugin doesn’t have issues) and I have contacted their support. They answered promptly and they were able to solve the issue. So if you have any trouble with the plugin, don’t worry – they will help you with your concerns. I can guarantee that!

I have seen some bad reviews on this plugin and I can only disagree with them:
1. One of them said it’s a Fraud – Well it isn’t. I have been using Blogvault for a long time and it’s worth every penny. To dismiss this review I can only use the following logical argument: Let’s assume you pay for the first month. They book the aprox. amount of 10$ from your account and you can’t use it, you can’t make it work. You contact the support and they don’t answer. You loose 10$ and as a consequence they lose reputation. Remember, this is only the assumption of the fraudulent argument. The problem with this argument is that you pay the fee and you get the whole package. You will never have to concern with creating a backup of your website again. Not impressed? Just try the “Test your Backup”. Before you update your website from one of the backups you’ve created, you can create a clone of your website on one of their servers in order to check if the backup was successful.

2.Some of them mentioned that is a plugin you have to pay. You want good quality, you pay for it. You want extra features you pay for them. That’s it. No argument. You want some free plugin, then don’t expect the best quality. Behind every good plugin, there is a team which works it’s ass of to make it great.

Some additional information: with this plugin you may even update your plugins from inside the dashboard of your blogvault account. This is very helpful if you don’t want to manually update every plugin you have installed on your website.

Furthermore the backup functionality is very fast and you are able to create a backup of your website much faster than manually downloading the files from your FTP-Server and not to forget the DB copy download which you will need for example for migrating your website.

As long as I am working in the area of developing websites, I will always be willing to pay for this plugin to be in charge of my backups. Again much thanks to the developers, they did a really good job with this one.

Brilliant!

I’ve tried several other free plugins but they were either too fiddly to use or were incredibly slow to produce a backup. I installed blogVault today and it had produced a backup of my whole site – 4.5GB – in around 45 minutes. It will update the backup daily and offers a whole range of other services, including migrating to another server. At $9 / month I think this is well worth the peace of mind. My website is vital to my business.

Lifesaver!

We just love the blogVault backup plugin and the awesome team behind it. They are a real lifesaver for all WordPress users!
