Blogvault, one of the best WordPress backup plugins in the market was initially launched in the year 2011. Since then, it has evolved with so many upgraded versions as per the techy taste of users. Every time users asks for a feature, the tool upgraded itself to give them what they want.
That’s why, still after 5 years, it is among the leading backup and security plugins.
In this post, I am sharing my personal experience with the backup plugin and how its salient features can help you during severe data losses.
Let’s Look at the Key Features that Set it Different from Other WordPress Backup Plugins of its Kind?
#Free Trial Facility
Blogvault provides 7 days free trial to users. A privilege, generally not given by other plugins. Users can avail the 7 days free trial without registering themselves with the plugins. All they need to do is to feed their email ID along with a password and website URL. Users during this period can check their compatibility with the application.
Blogvault installation is as easy as cutting a cake. It provides both automatic and manual installation. You can opt for any of the two methods. But to be honest with you, automated installation is more fun as I and most of the users prefer installing this way. Automatic installation process hardly needs 10 mins.
These are the instructions which I followed while installing it on my WordPress site:
- Go to the Plugin menu on your WordPress dashboard.
- Click on ADD NEW.
- Search Blogvault >> Click on Install button.
- Post Installation>> click Activate Plugin.
- Now register yourself with Blogvault
#Full Backup Of WordPress Site
Most of the backup plugins available outside focus on creating backups of the database only, they usually ignore site backups. Blogvault, on the other hand, is as unique as blue diamonds. It offers backup creation of entire website including site files and database. This ensures careless users like me that all my images, videos, themes, etc. I used during posting is safe.
But wait, why I am calling myself careless, I am wiser as I opt for Blogvault, ain’t I??
#Gives Lucid Backup History
This is probably the best feature that made my experience with it pretty good. Blogvault provides history page on its dashboard. The history board contains every minute detail about each update. It also includes a screenshot of each backup. You can rapidly have a glance at any of the update/transformation in your file, posts, plugins, pages, folders or tables.
This way you can easily monitor & track modification and changes you are doing at your website, over time.
You must be thinking, what is this? It is the rarest feature integrated with any backup plugin. Most of the plugins backup your daily and monthly work but Blogvault is different and that’s why it is beneficial.
It once creates a full backup of the website, then it does incremental backup, which means it saves only incremented data. Incremented data are the most recently constructed data. This also reduces disk storage space.
#Images’ And Videos’ Backup
Since it does site file’s backup, it backups all kinds of data including visuals and textual. Images and videos are no exceptions!
#Provision For Offsite Backup
Some backup plugins like Backupbuddy extra charge their customers for this service. Blogvault, being so generous provides the service for free. I mean, it by default supports both onsite and offsite backups in all its version.
Offsite backup refers to storing your information at secondary storage devices or at offsite/remote locations. This way, even if due to some reason your site get crashed, you can recover a new site using the data stored at offsite locations.

#Easy Migration Across The Multisite
Unlike UpdraftPlus, a backup plugin for WordPress, Blogvault by default enable users to switch between multiple sites within a network. All you have to do is to install it on the network administrator site and it will backup entire data of your network.
#Examine Backups Before Restoration
No doubt, Blogvault supported me fast and convenient restoration. Apart from it, it also provides test restoration feature, which is definitely a unique one. You can verify backups before employing them on a domain to check, is the website running perfectly or backup are validated or not.
The plugin stores backup data on its server prior to deploying them on your domain, during this time you can confirm the validity of backup data.
Have you heard about backup theft?
If not, lemme tell you, these day hackers are smarter enough to steal data even from backup stores. Blogvault has solutions for this too.
It creates backups up in encrypted form. You can, however, decode them whenever required.
#Flexible Plans As Per The Needs Of Users
Not every marketer has the same need, neither all of us have same budget. I am glad that Blogvault offers amenable products range to ease users to purchase what they want.
Though you will get huge discounts on the yearly package, if you have a tight budget or you first want to check it, you can pick any of the following three combinations:
- Basic: Ideal for individual bloggers and small businesses. Price for this package is $9 per month or $89 per annum. It backup only one site.
- Plus: Ideal for professional bloggers who owns more than one site. Price for this package is $19 per month or $189 per annum. It can backup up to three sites.
- Pro: This one is for large enterprises. Price for this package is $39 per month or $389 per annum. It can backup up to 7 sites.

Unlimited plan: If you want to backup more than 7 sites. With this, you can backup as many sites you want. Pricing of the unlimited package depends upon the number of sites you select.
Today, Blogvault is successfully providing its service to more than 10K+ users. I can proudly say, I am one of them. What I precisely love about this application is its zealous efforts to provide best to its customers. As a regard, users like me, stay lifetime connected to its incomparable services.
