Quick and Efficient Backing Up = Safer Sites

With Snapshot Pro Backing Up No Longer Has To Feel Like a Chore

Your WordPress site is one of your most valuable assets and often the accumulation of hours of work.

But even the most well-maintained sites can fall victim to hosting hiccups or faulty plugins.

Protect your site’s future with Snapshot and never get caught with your site’s backend exposed again!


Incremental backups are completed quicker and have less impact on your storage space.

Save Time and Storage With Incremental Backups

Incremental backups only account for the newest data, meaning you’re not running a full backup every single time (only the first time).

As a result, the backing up process is much faster and has a lower impact on your storage and server load.


Automate the time, day, and frequency of your backups.

Schedule Automatic and Manual Backups To Suit Your Needs

Snapshot makes it easy to schedule automatic backups to your preferred frequency.

You can also perform manual backups prior to adjusting code, updating WordPress core, or activating a new plugin.


10GB Cloud Storage + 30 Backups if You Need To Go Back in Time

Snapshot Pro gives you a generous 10GB worth of WPMU DEV cloud storage per account, plus we hold onto your last 30 backups in case you need to revert back at any point.

Manage Your Backups From One Easy To Use Dashboard

You can easily manage and keep track of your backups from Snapshot Pro’s insightful dashboard.

Quickly view the number of backups currently in your cloud storage, connected destinations, the date and time of your last successful backup, and the amount of storage space you have available.


Control every aspect of your backups, right down to the time and day they occur.

Configure Every Aspect Of Your Backups

Snapshot’s backups tab is your direct ticket to managing, configuring, scheduling, and restoring your backups.

Easily customize the time, day, and frequency of your backups – as well as file/folder exclusions and storage regions.


Restoring any of your chosen backups is a click away.

Get Back Up and Running Quickly With One Click Restore

Jump back in time in one click if you encounter any issues with your site.

Track each step of the restoring process and restore in the WP root, or download locally via a private email link.


You can choose to exclude any file or folder from manual or automatic backups.

Exclude Specific Files And Folders

As well as running end-to-end backups, Snapshot also allows you to exclude specific files or folders from your one-off or scheduled backups.


Keep tabs on all your backups with Snapshot’s logs.

View Logs and Gain More Insights About Your Backups

View Snapshot’s logs tab for a brief history of all your site’s backups.

You can use these insightful logs to help debug issues and learn what’s going on behind the scenes.


Manage Your Backups Straight From The Hub

Snapshot Pro can also be accessed through our website management platform, The Hub.

Like Snapshot’s own dashboard, The Hub allows you to quickly view, manage, and configure your backups without having to touch the WP backend.


As well as single sites, you can also use Snapshot to back up your multisite installations.

What About Multisite?

All of Snapshot’s time travelling features work for both single and multisite installations. So rest assured Snapshot has your entire network covered.


How Snapshot Goes Above and Beyond:

Trustworthy, All Inclusive Backups From The Root

Snapshot begins iterating files at the WP root. Everything at that level and beyond is iterated and included in your backup. This helps ensure that no files are left behind.

Dynamic Scaling

If server resources are exceeded at the time of your backup, Snapshot will retry two additional times with lower limits in order to complete the process. Making sure your backups complete is a top priority.

No Need To Stick Around

Some backup plugins force you to have the page open in order for your backup to finish. Snapshot Pro gives you the flexibility to do whatever you want, and still come back to a fully completed backup.

Backups Triggered At The EXACT Time You Schedule Them

To avoid system overloads, many backup platforms have a “window-time” of up to several hours before or after your scheduled backup time. Snapshot on the other hand, guarantees backups are triggered at the exact time you scheduled them.
