The advantage of Site-Vault is that it supports a wide variety of website types, from photo galleries, to blog CMS programs, to basic websites, to e-commerce sites. You just need to schedule your backups and let Site Vault take care of the rest. In addition, Site Vault will even clean up your website files.

Some of the features of Site Vault include:

  • Incremental backup for both files and database records (SQL)
  • Works as a service in the background
  • Great for keeping safe points your code
  • Smart cleanup engine that will keep the most relevant backups
  • Email notifications
  • Can be controlled using HTTP/HTTPS request

Perhaps the most important question you can ask yourself about backing up your website isn’t what the cost of the back up program will be, but what you stand to lose if your website crashes. If you’ve invested at least one hour in your website, then paying for a service like Site Vault will be well worth the investment.
