WordPress powers about 25.5% of the web and that isn’t going to slow down at al. In fact, it already powers 30.3% of all the web’s top 1000 websites and if you can take as social proof, you’ll only expect these numbers to climb.
Chances are that you are using WordPress too. If you are, then you’d need to prepare your site.
WordPress help comes in starting at a hefty $30 per hour (if you are looking for a decent service provider). While you’d still need to spend when you should, you’d do well to cut costs when you can with some incredible plugins that are available today.
One of the most pressing concerns for WordPress users is that it’s hard enough to manage a website as it is, and consumes time already. Issues like regular backups, migration, and any of those things might as well drive you up a wall.
For an average small business owner, it’s a pain in the ass to deal with issues like these. Meanwhile, WordPress services are expensive.
There’s a plugin for that, and it’s called Duplicator Pro by the folks from SnapCreek.
What Is Duplicator Pro?
Duplicator Pro is the advanced version of the already popular Duplicator Plugin used by more than 70,000 + sites around the world for a fairly focused offering that it provides: backups, site duplications (for designers and developers), and WordPress Website Migrations.
Duplicator Pro has multi-site support in addition to their standard single site capability. If you have multiple sites, this single plugin can help you do backups and migrate sites in bulk.
You also get large database support with ability to manually import SQL files. Setup backup limits to avoid a mess (like 560 previous backups) and kep your backup endpoints clean.
If you so wish, you can also select existing cPanel databases & users without ever leaving the popular WordPress installer.
You get plugin updates for a full year, get email notifications, large package support (on request), and many other options to manage your WordPress site(s).
Needless to say, you can backup sites right now or schedule them for later. Recover your WordPress websites from fatal failures (which are likely to happen), budle sites into packages, move entire packages out to another domain or host.
You can also backup files to DropBox, Google Drive, or Amazon S3.
