Awesome Plugin – Staging Site Amazing !

Part of the Blogvault package is a staging site. It is great for piece of mind. You can try out new themes, troubleshoot plugins, test importing products. It makes you fearless because you know you can just delete that staging site and try again. It makes updating and testing plugins so easy, because you know in advance if anything will go wrong. I have quite a few plugins, but this one I couldn't live without, just for the staging site portion alone, it is worth the pro version. Any support question I have had, has been answered very quickly.

Guard Your WP Site with BlogVault!

At first, I must admit I was skeptical about BlogVault. It only took about five minutes for any and all skepticism to disappear. BlogVault fully protects your site with a tiny, light weight plug-in packed with the literal power of an unbreakable vault (with laser beam sensors and all). But the protection is done through the plug-in using BlogVault’s servers, reducing resource drain on your host server and thus increasing SEO in a roundabout way. But it gets better, BlogVault is super affordable while providing comprehensive protection and backup. Remotely administer BlogVault and your WP site, yes your actual site, from the BlogVault dashboard. Update themes, update plug-ins, download a full backup of your site, upload a backup of your site easily to Dropbox, and so much more! But I’m still not done, the BlogVault support is spectacular! They care about every customer and respond quickly if you need help. Yes, BlogVault is new to the WP protection and backup scene, but definitely worth checking out. I’ve used iThemes and Wordfence; don’t waste your time and money. Set any skepticism aside and check out BlogVault now - you won’t regret it!
