Supports Both Automated and Manual Backups
Simply select a date and time for automatic backups and BoldGrid Backup will create a backup archive of your entire WordPress installation and its database. If a full website or database backup isn’t required, you can choose to backup only certain files, folders and database tables.

Remote Backups
Safely store backups remotely via FTP / SFTP. The premium version of BoldGrid Backup allows you to automatically upload archives to Amazon S3 or Google Drive.

Easy Site Restoration and Website Migration
Download, restore, or delete backups with a single click from the BoldGrid Backup Dashboard.

Restore Your Website Even If WordPress Is Down
Use our restoration script to restore a backup from outside of WordPress in the event WordPress itself has been corrupted.

Restore Entire Backup Archive or Single Files
Need to restore only one file from a backup? BoldGrid Backup Premium gives you the option to restore a single file within the backup browser.

Historical Versions
Do you have a file that needs to be restored, but not sure which backup it’s in? The Historical Versions feature allows you to view a list of all of your backups containing that file and provides an easy way to restore the file.

Easily Clone or Migrate Your Websites
BoldGrid Backup allows you to easily clone a website and migrate it to another WordPress installation with just a few clicks. Install BoldGrid Backup on both WordPress sites, create a backup archive on the first site, then restore that backup on your second site using a protected link – simply copy and paste the link! It’s the easiest and fastest way to duplicate / clone your website.

Site Check
Site Check monitors your site at specified intervals for errors that could lead to catastrophic data loss. If Site Check detects an error, it will send you an email alert and auto restore your website using your latest backup.

Built-in Diagnostic Tools
Site Check keeps a running historical error log, allowing you to easily diagnose and troubleshoot website issues.

Powerful Website Restoration Functionality
You can configure Site Check’s settings from the BoldGrid Backup settings page, or via command line. If your site is totally non-functional, you can use the command line to easily restore your website from the last full backup archive.

Auto Rollback
You can set BoldGrid Backup to automatically backup your site before updates, and automatically rollback your site to the last backup if an update fails. Automatic updates can be set for WordPress core, plugins, and themes individually.

Create Staging Sites with BoldGrid Backup + Cloud WordPress
Cloud WordPress allows you to create a fully functional free WordPress demo (with or without BoldGrid) in just a few clicks. Use BoldGrid Backup to clone and migrate your website to a Cloud WordPress installation, where you can test themes, plugins and other website changes without fear of breaking your live site.
