Managing your blog should be simple. No, really. You probably don’t even realize how much time you’re wasting.Imagine if you want a new SEO plugin:
- You go to Google.
- You go to the plugin repository.
- You search.
- You read reviews.
- You try one, configure it and it doesn’t work,
- So you try another…
- Suddenly 10 hours has disappeared.
Our long term goal is to take all of this pain away. So you can get back to blogging.
The first product we are releasing to help maintain your blog is here. It’s called BackupPress. Why? Cause right now, backups in the WordPress world are way too freaking hard (unless you can afford VaultPress, which we love!). But if you can’t afford VaultPress, or don’t want to pay more for backups than you do for hosting, we’re here to help.
Don’t waste time, don’t waste money, upgrade to real peace of mind with 23press’s BackupPress
“Unlike many of the other WordPress backup plugins I’ve used,
this one makes things very easy, and that has been my experience
in using both of the 23Press products now.”
– David Peralty, WordPress wizard and beta user
If You Don’t Backup
You’re just plain silly. Even one of the free tools will ensure you don’t lose your data! Back. Up. Now! Right now! Then come back and finish reading this post
If You Use a Free Tool
Free tools are great for one thing: Making sure you have a regular archive of all of your content. However when you restore from a free tool, you need to restore your themes, plugins, settings and anything that happened since the last backup is lost! So not only will you have almost certainly lost data (even a handful of comments), it’ll probably take you 10-15 hours to get everything working again.
At $5/month, I’m pretty sure we can all agree it’s worth saving yourself that pain! And, given we really want to help everyone back up their data, our beta price is more than half off at just $25/month. Seriously. So if you value your time at all, you should be using one of the products we or our competitors make!
If You Use BackupBuddy
We have nothing but respect for the iThemes crew. What they’ve done for the WordPress community is flat out awesome. But, we have two issues with BackupBuddy (both of which we’re hoping they address). The big one is security, as Terry talked about recently. Fundamentally, if you’re trusting a product with your data you need to know it’s secure.
The second is that, really, do you need to choose between FTP backups or Amazon backups or having files emailed to you? Shouldn’t backups be more like TimeMachine and just work? Click “start”, and foggedaboutit?
If You Love Unicorns
Come on, who doesn’t love unicorns?!
But seriously. Managing your blog should be easy. Backups is part of that. We don’t really care if you use us, VaultPress or BackupBuddy. What we care about is that you waste no time at all and have total peace of mind that when you need to restore it will a) work, b) not take any time and c) not cost you more than it should.
