 For backup, it is not enough or bright to solely rely on your web host’s backups, just because they offer that service, especially where it’s free of charge. Their backup services are 90% unreliable. It is better to have a backup plugin of your choice. Always choose a plugin that offers you the services you need and is efficient for your website.

Below is a comparison between VaultPress and BackWPup to offer you the best insight on what plugin to choose and one that will effectively work for your website.

Vaultpress

VaultPress was founded by Matt Mullenweg as an independent plugin at Automattic, VaultPress is now a part of Automattic’s another product called JetPack, which means you will need a JetPack subscription plan to use VaultPress. One of its downsides is that backups are stored for only 30-days on the lower plans and to get unlimited backup, it is costly. You have to pay $29 per month per website.

When it comes to BackWPup, its Pro version comes with priority support, ability to store backups on Google Drive, and some other cool features. It is also extremely easy to use and allows you to schedule automatic backups according to your site’s update frequency.
