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.

Even your host backup may not be enough if you experience a server crash. Other WordPress security issues include hacks, malware, user error, deleted files and running bad commands.

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.

So if something goes wrong, rest easy. BackupBuddy backs up your whole WordPress site, provides scheduled backups, allows you to send/store backups remotely off-site, and has a process for quickly and easily restoring WordPress from a backup.

Move WordPress or Migrate WordPress

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.

Change Your Domain / URL

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.

URL Replacement

BackupBuddy automatically replaces all the URLs when you migrate a site to a new domain. BackupBuddy even has a tool for replacing other text in your database.

Features for WordPress Security & WordPress Optimization

BackupBuddy includes a few built-in WordPress security and WordPress optimization tools to help your website run safely and more efficiently.

Exclude Files & Database Tables

Choose which files (or database tables) to exclude from your backups. This is helpful if you have a folder with lots of high-res images or videos.

WordPress Malware Scan

BackupBuddy does a free malware scan of your site to make sure your site and your online reputation are squeaky clean with all the major blacklist checks.

WordPress Server Tools

Take a deep look at your server settings and capabilities. Our built-in server tools are super helpful for tracking down possible hosting problems.

Serialized Data

Most WordPress backup plugins just skip over serialized data, because it’s complicated to migrate properly.

Database Mass Text Replacement

Update text throughout your database. This is great for updating URLs, strings of text.

WordPress Cron Manager

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

Interactive Site Directory Map

Visualize what takes up the most space on your site. It’s really cool to dig through and view your files this way.

Database Scan & Repair

Scans and repairs common issues with your database.

Customize Backup Storage Limits

Limit the number and size of the backups you store so you don’t fill up your Stash account with 40 old backups.
