It’s been a great year so far for VaultPress — from Matt’s launch announcement in March, through opening the beta over the summer, and to now, where we’re supporting an amazing roster of WordPress sites all over the world. Thanks to each one of you in the community who’s taken the time in 2010 to give us your feedback, kick the tires, and generally help us create the kind of service we always wanted for ourselves to safeguard our WordPress sites.
In 2011, we’ll continue to improve VaultPress, and we’ll be taking our show out on the road to meet up with the WordPress community. If you’re a WordPress consultant, theme professional, web host, or you run a business on top of WordPress, we’d love to talk to you about how we can make VaultPress even better for you. Several of us – including me – will be at WordCamp Phoenix in January. We hope to see you there and at other WordCamps to come in the new year.
Our mission remains the same from where we started: we want to provide the best possible solution for everyone who depends on WordPress to completely protect and secure their sites.
See you in the New Year!
I suspect that what you VaultPress guys will mostly be hearing, at Phoenix and all the other WordCamps this year, will be the words “multisite” and “BuddyPress”.
Happy Christmas guys, keep up the good work!
Enjoy holidays guys, you are doing a great job.
P.S.: And please, add PayPal as payment method! 🙂
Happy Holidays! (a little late, but better than never).
One question I have, is what security is place during the transfer process. Is it a secure connection?
Some folks on the LinkedIn WordPress group are questioning whether to trust these types of back up services. While I think you guys are great, he does pose a legitimate questions.
Maybe that’s your next blog post.
If you are using https when you first install and activate the plugin, we will attempt to use https each and every time we contact your site (Including getting backups from your site). Once you’ve installed VaultPress, you can also configure SSH access from your VaultPress dashboard immediately and we can use that to back up your site.
