WPEngine and VaultPress

As you may have heard on TechCrunch, when you sign up for an account at WPEngine you also get a golden ticket giving you the opportunity to be one of the first customers of VaultPress. They, and one other host that hasn’t launched yet, have access to what we’re calling the “golden ticket machine” internally. It’s basically a way for select partners to bypass the normal waiting list.

With a bit more beta experience (and a lot more BBQ) under our belt, we’ve been working on partnerships to bring VaultPress to more professional WordPress site owners. After getting feedback from several full-time WordPress consultants who manage sites for many clients, we are also working on getting our new “VaultPress Pro” system up and running. So far the biggest requests have been for a unified admin view, the ability for clients to pay directly for VaultPress, and affiliate participation (all of which we dig too). If you have more than 5 clients you’d like to Vault and have some other ideas, let us know in the comments!

    ‘VaultPress Pro’ is certainly a great idea. A frequent question by my customers relates to WordPress security (including how to backup, keep Plugins updated etc.). VaultPress is the solution to all of this and, for me, the unified Admin view will save me alot of time!

    As someone who promotes WordPress to many existing and new clients, I’d love to offer a consolidated backup system leveraging VaultPress. One of the biggest pains I’ve seen is the ability to simply set up a rock solid back up system, easy enough for someone with little back end experience to handle.

    From the screenshots, VaultPress looks promising.

    I’m a new user of Vaultpress and I would like to say that it’s really easy to use and I which I can promote your plugin via a affiliate program.

    I can see a lot of potential with a program like that for both my company and growing Vaultpress user base.
