Celebrating 5 Years of VaultPress

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!

  2. Congratulations VaultPress. You have saved my bacon a few times during that 5 years and, I am so glad you are backing up our treasured family archive. It is a site you just don’t lose! Here’s to many more! THANK YOU!

  3. Congrats on the five year anniversary. I visited the page to learn more about the three-month trial, but didn’t find anything about an extended three-month trial. All I found were the LIte, Basic, and Security Bundle plans. There isn’t a trial plan listed. Am I missing something?
