Automattic Launches VaultPress, Back Up Service for Self-Hosted Blogs
Automattic has announced its new service that is aim to help self-hosted WordPress blog owners ensure that their blog properties are safe and secure. The new service called VaultPress is an online backup service built on the Automattic grid which in case you’re not aware is serving more than 10 billion WordPress.com blogs and 250 million monthly visitors.
VaultPress would ensure that your blogs and sites are completely secure no matter what happens to the server where it is hosted. The service will secure your plugins, themes, comments, posts revisions and of course every bit of content of your WordPress blogs.
Despite the complexity of what it can do, using VaultPress will be surprisingly easy. It’s actually your usual WordPress plugin that you can install on your blogs. And you can always add additional blogs easily anytime you need to.
And once you get VaultPress running, it will continously monitors and stores updates to your blogs and sites. Everything that you do – write, edit, and upload will be simultaneously reflected in your VaultPress backup.
Sounds wonderful, right? Unfortunately, VaultPress will be offered as a Premium service. Monthly fee is expected to be around $10. But hey, it’s not really a big sum of money considering that it will safely secure that your blogs will always be online.
VaultPress is about to go on close beta state. If you want to be part of the beta testers, you may sign up here.
