Announcing Streamlined Plans — at Lower Prices

Howdy! We wanted to share some exciting news: we’re simplifying our paid subscription options, and making them a better value along the way. While we were at it, we also streamlined the process of installing and configuring VaultPress.

We’ve joined forces with Jetpack to bundle our features into plans that provide you with more services for the same — or lower — prices.

The New Plans

We now offer three plans: Personal, Premium, and Professional.

At $3.50 per month, the Jetpack Personal plan includes everything the old VaultPress Lite plan used to — at a price that’s 30% lower. You can save even more if you choose the annual plan for $39 (instead of $42 for monthly billing). Jetpack Personal includes:

  • Daily automated backups.
  • A 30-day backup archive (with unlimited storage space).
  • Spam protection by Akismet.

Jetpack Premium is our most popular plan for ensuring that your site, data, and content are safe. At $9 per month, the plan now costs 40% less than the old VaultPress Basic plan. Here, too, we offer more savings on a yearly purchase, bringing the price down to $99 (instead of $108). Jetpack Premium includes everything in Jetpack Personal, as well as:

  • Daily, automated malware scanning.
  • Dedicated security support from our Happiness Engineers.
  • Limited use (13Gb) of video CDN.

Finally, our top-of-the-range plan: Jetpack Professional includes a suite of advanced features for your site, from extra security measures to hands-on SEO management. The $29 per month subscription costs the same as the old VaultPress Premium plan, but now includes several bonus features. A yearly purchase comes with significant savings — $299, down from $348 per year. Jetpack Professional includes all the features in Jetpack Personal and Premium, as well as:

  • On-demand malware scanning — going beyond the daily scans included in the Premium plan.
  • One-click threat resolution.
  • SEO tools for your site.
  • Unlimited use of video CDN.

The New Installation Process

One of the main benefits of being part of Jetpack is that installing and activating VaultPress has become a whole lot simpler. You no longer need to manually install plugins, copy and paste registration keys, and verify that your backups are working.

Just as before, when you select a plan you will be prompted to type in your site URL and create an account. However, by installing Jetpack — a straightforward step that’s part of the checkout process — we can automatically configure VaultPress, Akismet, and all the relevant registration keys and settings on your site!

What now?

Take a look at our new plans page to read more about the features we offer and our commitment to keep your site safe and secure: whatever risks the web might pose to your site, we’ve got you covered.

If you have any questions feel free to contact us — we’ll do our best to help you out!
