Best Value for Migration/Backup/Restoration of WP websites
By , for WP 4.1.1

I decided to go with the premium version because I am developing our web site on a sub-domain (staging website) and UpdraftPlus allows me to avoid all the troubles of migrating a web site (trust me if you try to do it manually you need to know what you're doing otherwise it will take you hours of trials and errors).

Furthermore, I contacted the author of the plugin David Anderson more than 10 times and he always took the time to answer me (sometimes the same day) with clear instructions. Once I gave him my WordPress credentials and he fix the problem in my UpdraftPlus settings.

The premium version is very advanced and allows you to fix many problems like JSON-encoded data issue, data serialization, web hosting server limit timeout and much more...

Obviously this plugin deserves its 4.8 out of 5 stars. Personally I give 5 out of 5 stars.

David Anderson you rock!

After a long search for a free backup plugin that can store backup file to Google Drive, I found it and I am more than happy using it. Keep going!

UpdraftPlus to the rescue!
By ,


I am one of those non-tech people who stumble through almost every aspect of maintaining a blog (except for the writing). Earlier this morning, I downloaded a few themes to give them a live preview.

In the end, I decided to stay with my original theme, but when I returned to it and visited my home page, my sidebar was blank!

I went to my widgets area and they were gone!

Did I panic?

Duh . . .

Last time I lost data, I called HostMonster and they were their usual competent selves and restored my site, but it took a while. (Mainly waiting for a phone connection while listening to a short Enya piece over and over and over . . .)

Since then, I installed UpdraftPlus and so I called upon it for the first time. The whole process of restoring my site was quick and painless. I can go back to writing . . .

Thanks and keep on keepin' on!


Thanks a lot for this great tool !
