Backups to Remote Datacenters
Our cloud backups transmit every change you make to your WordPress site over an encrypted connection to Amazon Web Services, the most reliable and trusted data storage platform in the world. We offer daily and realtime backups depending on your plan level and specific needs of your website.
Independent offsite backups
Every website owner should have a regularly-scheduled external backup of their website independent of their hosting provider. Backing up your files offsite saves your server resources and ensures that you have an adequate redundancy of all your critical site files and data.
To prevent overloading your server, our WordPress backup solution is designed to take incremental backups of your site. This means that we only sync the changes that have been made since your last backup, rather than syncing all of your site files over and over again every single day.
30-day backup archive
At your request, we can restore any backups taken of your site within the past 30 days.
Hourly & real-time backups available
Hourly and real-time backups are available for sites with frequent data changes, like high-volume content publishers or eCommerce and membership sites.
WordPress multisite backups
Our backup solution supports backing up entire WordPress multisites in both subdomain and sub-directory configurations.
If you use WooCommerce, daily and hourly backups may not be enough — you need real-time backups. At SiteCare, our WooCommerce backup solution is designed to trigger the moment any purchases or other ecommerce events are detected on your site.
Backups aren’t just for emergency situations. Need to test site changes before pushing them live? We can use your site’s backups to create a staging environment, which is a non-public clone of your site used for testing.
24/7 malware monitoring
Your backup files will always be there to save the day in the event of a site hack, but we believe that the best backup solution is prevention. Our WordPress support plans come with 24/7 malware scanning that identifies security threats before they become problems.
Back up your website with a WordPress support plan.
Take any of our support plans on a 30 day test-drive. If we don’t knock your socks off with our professional care and attention to detail, we’ll give you your money back. Simple as that!
If you don’t have regularly scheduled, offsite backups taken of your site, you’re playing with fire. Here are the four main reasons why a WordPress backup solution is critical:
1. Safeguard your WordPress site against human error
Humans make mistakes. It’s a fact of life. While some mistakes have minimal real-life consequences, some mistakes can be devastating if you don’t have a reliable contingency plan in place. When it comes to websites, a seemingly minor action can result in losing critical company files, breaking the functionality of an important feature, or bringing your entire site down altogether.
The preventable nature of many human errors can be frustrating to think about, but regardless of the scope or severity of the consequences, what matters most is how you move forward. And sometimes, moving forward literally means moving backward. With SiteCare’s WordPress backup solution in place, our team can turn back the clock to a time before that human error was made.
2. Ensure safe WordPress updates
The open-source nature of WordPress has allowed this website platform to flourish over the years, but this strength comes with one major challenge — compatibility. For your website to function correctly, your WordPress core software must coexist peacefully with your theme and plugins.
Unfortunately, if you’re using an ancient WordPress theme or a plugin that has been abandoned by its developer, you may run into trouble when trying to update your site. Outdated themes and plugins can conflict with other plugins or they might simply be incompatible with the latest version of WordPress core. At best, a botched WordPress update results in a minor site feature no longer working. At worst, it could mean completely breaking your site.
That’s why SiteCare makes sure our customers’ WordPress sites have been recently backed up before rolling out any software updates.
3. Restore a compromised or hacked WordPress site
WordPress hacks and malware are a website owner’s worst nightmare. They can destroy and corrupt your site files, endanger visiting customers, and damage the credibility of your business. At SiteCare, we monitor and eliminate security threats before they can take root, and our WordPress backup solution ensures that any damage done is swiftly reverted.
4. Test site changes using a staging environment
While our WordPress backup service allows you to triage in emergency WordPress situations caused by human error, it’s also designed to prevent site-breaking human errors from occurring in the first place. How? With the ability to set up staging environments for testing site changes before going live. A staging environment is a dupe of your live website that is generated from a backed up copy of your site files. Because this staging site is hosted on private URL that is inaccessible to the public, you can use this environment to test development and design changes without compromising the functionality and user experience of your live site.
A WordPress support plan from SiteCare is the perfect holistic solution for not only safely backing up your site, but also making sure it is properly updated and secured.
