Backup is a way of copying your data or files to a secure place, which can be used to restore your website in case of data loss. Backups are vital in securing the data that you have published or written. Backups with Backuply are easy and secure with support for multiple options of storage like local storage using FTP or using third-party services like Google Drive, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, AWS S3 and WebDAV.
To make it even easier we support Automatic Backups with a customizable backup schedule.


Restoring is just a One-Click process using Backuply. If the selected backup is available then Backuply will restore your backups safely. Restoring a backup will roll back your site in the exact same state as it was when the backup was created.


Backuply creates a tar file of your whole WordPress install with the Database, so you can migrate your site to any host or location where WordPress can be installed. All you need to do is create a Backup of your WordPress install on a remote location, and that’s it, It can be synced on any WordPress install with ease so you just need to restore the synced backup on the new location for Migration to happen.

Great plugin. Much faster to backup the site than other plugins I have tested. It is simple, clean and does the job. Five stars from me!

I had to migrate several sites from one server to another and was really struggling with my internet connection, all my backups that I downloaded was corrupt, so I asked for help, they requested access details for the old and new server, that was it. Result: This team worked non-stop for several days to migratte,create and setup my new WHM!! As I said before this is unfair to other companies, they litterally leave them in the dust. I am so impressed its not even funny. Well done guys, I am sorry to have put so much pressure on you, yet not one complaint Really best support team ever! Andre

Admittedly I can be a reckless developer at times, often using the “don’t know unless you try it approach.” Backuply in less than a month has already saved me several times. As a recent reluctant convert to WP/Woocommerce from other platforms, including Joomla, OpenCart and Magento, I predicted that I’d probably make tons of mistakes during initial development, not only in mods but also flipping the wrong combination of switches. I therefore took several backups each day just to be sure. I’ve restored from these backups numerous times already with no problems, especially after bad updates of other plug-ins. This is reassuring for anyone using apps like E / E Pro and others that can have less than optimum updates. So far so good. Touch wood. Very pleased to date.
