New VaultPress Lite Backup & Restore Comparison

If you didn’t already know, VaultPress is owned & managed by the company behind WordPress, Automattic.

They specialize in protecting and securing WordPress sites.

Today they offer a new package which is significantly more affordable than their existing basic and premium plans.

Its also a third of the cost.

Here’s what you get if you sign up for the VaultPress Lite plan @ $5 a month:

  • Daily Backup
  • Automated Site Restore
  • 30 days of backups

Considering it costs $75 a year for a premium plugin like Backupbuddy, that’s not a bad deal as Backup buddy doesn’t offer one click restoration of your files and databases.

You’ll also need to download a backup manually every 30 days if you want access to more than one months of backups as the lite plan only stores 30 days of backups.

Who Else Offers Auto Site Backup & Restore

If you’re hosting on Blue Hosts servers, you can pay an extra fee and buy one click backup and restore. Otherwise all Blue Host Pro customers get this feature included in the Pro Package.

WPEngine also offers automated daily backup and restore points. On top of this you can create your own restore points not to mention the fact you’re also getting the fastest WordPress hosting so your site may load in less than one second like WP Sites normally does.

    Hi Brad
    Is there a link in this post to the Vaultpress lite plan – did I miss it?
    Sounds good and affordable.

    Noticed a typo… (you can delete my reference to the typo)

    “You’ll also need to download a backup manually every 30 days of you want access to more than one months of backups…”

    Should of read if?

      Yes i linked to the 3 plans. Not a bad deal if you want backup and restore. Thanks for stopping by Keith.

    I think that tools like VaultPress and Backup Buddy are great. Personally for my clients, I use the automated backup/restore feature in InfiniteWP and run daily DB and weekly FS backups right to my S3 bucket. More advanced, but works like a charm.
