It’s VaultPress’ 5th birthday this week! In his post on June 29, 2010 — one of the first posts ever on this blog — Matt announced that we had sent out the very first Golden Ticket invites to VaultPress. In the beginning, we sent 30 invites a day, and grew gradually over the first several months. From those first Golden Tickets to the many users we support today, VaultPress has:
- Found 201,754 infected files
- Made 50,100,955 backup snapshots.
- Backed up 27,615 distinct plugins and 17,675 themes
Let’s take a look back at our first tweet and some early designs:
Our designs have changed over the years, but we’ve never wavered in our commitment to making the best product we can for the WordPress community. In a recent survey of 21 professionals on the best backup WordPress plugins, we’re proud that VaultPress came out on top as the clear winner. Feedback on our product is incredibly positive — it’s great to see people like Brin Wilson of WinningWP say that VaultPress is “basically effortless.” We’re so happy to see how far we’ve come.
To celebrate our 5-year anniversary and to say thank you and give back to our users, we’ve launched an extended 3-month trial. If you want to sign up, just visit this page: https://vaultpress.com/bestof/
We hope that by extending the trial, we can help bring VaultPress to more people for free for a longer period of time.
As always, drop us a line if you have any follow-up questions!
