Top 6 WordPress Backup Plugins 2020

Top 6 WordPress 2018 Backup Plugins

It is quite unfortunate that most bloggers don't know how to backup their WordPress websites/blogs and the importance to this.

If you are not already backing up your site, then you should pick one of these Top 6 WordPress 2018 Backup Plugins and start using it right away.

Top 6 WordPress 2018 Backup Plugins

BackupBuddy is the most popular premium WordPress backup plugin. It allows you to easily schedule daily, weekly, or monthly backups. It can also automatically store your backups in Dropbox, Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud, FTP, Stash (their cloud service), and even email it to yourself.

If you use their Stash service, then you also have the ability to do real-time backups.

The biggest advantage of using BackupBuddy is that it is not a subscription based service, so there is no monthly fee. You can use the plugin on the number of sites mentioned in your plan. You also get access to premium support forums, regular updates, and 1GB of cloud storage to store your backups.

2. BackWPUp

BackWPup is a free plugin that allows you to create complete WordPress backup for free and store it on the cloud (Dropbox, Amazon S3, Rackspace, etc), FTP, email, or on your computer.

It is extremely easy to use and allows you to schedule automatic backups according to your site’s update frequency.

Restoring a WordPress site from backup is also very simple. The BackWPup Pro version comes with priority support, ability to store backups on Google Drive, and some other cool features.

3. UpdraftPlus

UpdraftPlus is a free WordPress backup plugin. It allows you to create complete backup of your WordPress site and store it on the cloud or download to your computer.

The plugin supports scheduled as well as on-demand backups. You can also choose which files to backup. It can automatically upload your backups to Dropbox, Google Drive, S3, Rackspace, FTP, SFTP, email, and several other cloud storage services (see our step by step guide on how to backup & restore your WordPress site with UpdraftPlus).

UpdraftPlus also has a premium version with add-ons to migrate or clone site, database search and replace, and multisite support among other things. The premium version also gets you access to priority support. 

4. BackUpWordPress

BackupWordPress is a complete WordPress backup plugin with automatic scheduling support. It allows you to create different schedules for your database and files. The only problem is that the free version does not allow you to store your WordPress backups to a cloud storage service.

If you want to store your backups on Dropbox, Google Drive, FTP, etc, then you will need to purchase a premium extension for it. The extensions are available for each service, and you can buy the one you need or the whole bundle.

5. WP-DB-Backup

With more than 400,000 active installs, WP-DB-Backup is one of the most popular WordPress backup plugins. The only problem is that it only backups your WordPress database.

This means that you will have to backup your media files manually. If you do not update a site too often or do not upload images, then you can use WP-DB-Backup as your primary WordPress backup plugin.

WP-DB-Backup makes it really simple to create database backups, schedule automated backups, and restore your database. It is also a very useful tool for users who do not have access to phpMyAdmin to backup WordPress dataabase manually.

6. VaultPress (with Jetpack)

VaultPress was founded by Matt Mullenweg (WordPress co-founder) and his team at Automattic.

It has recently become part of Automattic’s another product called JetPack. You will need a JetPack subscription plan to use VaultPress. There are different pricing plans with different set of features.

VaultPress offers automated real-time cloud backup solution starting at $3.50 per month. Setting up VaultPress and restoring from backups is just a matter of clicks. With some of their packages, they even offer security scans.

There are a few downsides of using VaultPress. First, it is a recurring expense that can add up if you have multiple WordPress sites. Secondly, you will have to subscribe to JetPack, get a WordPress.com account, and install the Jetpack plugin on your site.

Lastly, on the lower plans backups are stored for only 30-days archive. If you want unlimited backup archive, then you would have to pay the $29 per month fee per website which is significantly more expensive for beginners when compared to other solutions listed here.

Conclusion

Having setup correctly any of the aforementioned plugin, your website/blog is at 99% risk-free whenever any odd circumstances occurs.

We recommend you to choose anyone suitable for your website/blog today and enjoy.
