Backup Creator – WordPress Backup Plugin

Backup Creator is an easy-to-use plugin that allows you to backup your WordPress data, clone your websites, and protect your sites against data loss.

One of the downsides of doing business in the Digital Age is that we are constantly under the potential threat of having our websites and social media accounts hacked into and our business and personal data stolen and manipulated.

Backup Creator - Backup, Duplicate & Protect Your WP Website

If you own or manage any web assets like a blog or company website, then you need to carefully consider online security and the urgency of having a digital security plan.

As well as having an internet security plan for your business, you will also want to prevent loss of data from errors that can set your business back. Having a way to completely restore your site, files or data in extreme situations is something that can only be appreciated after it’s too late.

Then again, you may just want to save time. If parts of your business involve setting up many websites or blogs, having an efficient way of copying web site data from one site to another would be very convenient.

As any wise website owner will tell you, “it’s better to be safe than sorry.” Backing up your WordPress blog, therefore, is something that everybody should do. The truth, however, is that left to their own devices, website owners rarely do it, or don’t do it as often as it should be done.

Let’s face it … getting hacked, losing data, and making errors that can wreck your site is all part of running a digital business presence. If something tragic ever happens to you, then you will need a quick and easy way to restore lost content, restore your site to an earlier version, or complete reinstall your site and data.

Fortunately, if you own a WP-powered site, then there’s a simple tool that allows you to create backups of your WordPress database and website files, clone your website to another location and restore previous backups of your site.

Backup Creator - Backup, Clone & Protect Your WP Web SitesUser Feedback

Below are a couple of the testimonials plugin users have written about Backup Creator:

Freakin Awesome… I figured I was going to copy and paste all the pages, pictures, etc… since I’m doing this part time, I figured about 2 nights of work…. NOT!!! This utility just paid for itself.

Plugin Tips

Here are some great uses for Backup Creator:

Document Your Site Processes As You Go.

Instead of spending loads of time documenting all the steps you would normally have to document in order to create new sites, you can just set up your blog exactly the way you want it, back it up|make an identical copy of site and then restore it to a new domain and you’ve now got an exact, “documented” copy of your blog setup.

For example, let’s say that you want to set up a number of websites which use identical plugins, settings, and configurations in different niche areas. This could be for a nationwide retailer, or an insurance agency with branches in different locations, where each branch will run their own separate website. Think of all the time you’ve spent tweaking and finetuning your discussion settings, widgets and sidebars, configuring different plugins and navigation menus, creating the main content sections, customizing the theme, etc. You can now instantly install a fully-functioning, completely configured website every single time with only a couple of mouse clicks.

Restore A Backup On Another Website With Correct Internal Links.

Simply downloading WordPress files and restoring WP file backups won’t duplicate your sites successfully. You also have to copy the WordPress database and ensure that it references the new domain. Otherwise, your database data will be restored to another website, but still be pointing back to the old domain. This is why it’s important to use a WP backup plugin that is specifically developed to clone sites. This lets you perform a backup of site “A” and restore it to site “B” with all your theme customizations, plugin and site settings and configurations included, once again, saving you hours – even weeks of work, and ensuring that all internal links have been configured correctly.

Don’t Waste Time Fixing Serious Problems … Restore!

Here’s another useful time-saving tip: if your website ever gets hacked, or an unauthorized user somehow gets in and causes some kind of damage to your site, instead of spending days or weeks trying to fix things, just make a backup of your files and database, delete everything, and restore a previous working copy. Your site is now instantly back and you can then send the damaged files to a WP troubleshooter who can then try to understand how your site got broken into and how to repair or identify any vulnerabilities.

Here’s one more final tip:

Document Your Site’s Progress Over Time.

Imagine that a couple of years from now your business has grown and transformed into an online success. Wouldn’t it be great to show people how your digital presence began? Or maybe you’ve made things so complicated and would like to return to a simpler place. Perhaps you’ve accidentally deleted a bunch of articles and want to get those back.

If you keep a weekly backup of your site, the chances of losing files are quite low because you don’t have to be concerned about where everything has been stored or organized. Just go back to the time when you remember you had that file, restore your backup (note: your backup can be anywhere, even on a test site) and retrieve the data you need.
