Why Backup Your WordPress Site & Protect Your Online Work?

WITHOUT A BACKUP, YOUR WORDPRESS WEBSITE COULD BE LOST FOREVER.

Your WordPress website needs a reliable backup strategy using a trusted WordPress backup plugin like BackupBuddy. WordPress doesn’t include built-in backups, so we built BackupBuddy in 2010 to meet the need for a solid WordPress backup solution.

All of these things can completely wipe out your WordPress site forever. Having a current backup of your WordPress website is critical for protecting your website. BackupBuddy is here to help.

Move WordPress or Migrate WordPress

SAVE HOURS OF WORK (AND WE MEAN HOURS!)

Need to change hosts or domains for your WordPress site? You can do that with BackupBuddy, too. BackupBuddy helps you move a WordPress site to a new host or domain easily. BackupBuddy’s WordPress migration feature is a very popular feature for WordPress developers who build custom sites for clients locally or on a temporary domain and then move the entire site over to a live domain.

Change Hosts or Servers

Need to move your WordPress site to a new host or server? BackupBuddy allows you to move your entire WordPress site to a new host or server.

Need to change the domain name of your WordPress site? That’s easy, too. BackupBuddy handles moving your website to a different domain or URL.

WordPress Cron Manager

DEVELOPER FEATURE

View, delete or manually run WordPress scheduled CRON jobs on low-traffic sites.
