This is an amazing piece of software which allows you to,
- Back up your site

- Clone your site and deploy it to another domain, even on another server with a different hosting company
Backing Up & Restoring
Unlike some tools, WP Twin backs up your full site. This means
Should you be unfortunate enough to have your site hacked or simply lose it due to some “technical problems”, a quick and simple restore of your backup file will have you back up and running in minutes, maybe even seconds!
Your fully configured theme, together with all your posts, tags, comments, links, widgets, headers, footers, redirects, in fact EVERYTHING, will be restored as if nothing had happened. This is equally true regardless of your type of WordPress site, be it,
- Affiliate Marketing
And as if this wasn’t enough, this can be done quickly and easily by a complete technophobe. The script comes with two short videos (approx 5 mins each), taking you through both the site back up procedure and the deployment of your backup file. For those who prefer text, easy to follow instructions are also provided in pdf format.
What makes WP Twin better than other backup tools?
WP Twin isn’t a plugin, it’s a script. This gives it two major advantages over its plugin competitors.
- Chances are if your site is hacked you won’t be able to access your backup plugin, thus effectively rendering it useless. With WP Twin your back up file is saved to your hard drive and your site is simply restored via your web browser.
- It continues to work even when WordPress has been upgraded, whereas plugins become outdated until the developers update them to reflect the changes.
Furthermore your site can be fully restored in seconds. Seriously 🙂
Remember setting up your site? All the hours it took to configure the theme and install the plugins. Not to mention setting up the compliance pages. And now you want to set up another site based on the same or similar configuration. I don’t know about you but I use to dread the thought of just doing this. It’s not that it’s difficult, it’s just repetitive, boring and time consuming.
WP Twin eliminates this tedious task. In minutes you can clone a blog and install it on another domain. Maybe a few minor tweaks, such as the installation of a different theme, and you’re good to go.
Think about it. Not only can you save yourself hours setting up your own sites, but if you’re working as an offline consultant, you can create a gallery of themes and simply copy and deploy the one your client chooses. You can earn tidy fees for very little work, and impress your client with how quickly you can deliver the job.
Whether you’re backing up your site or cloning blogs WP Twin works,
- On PC, Mac and any smart phone
- With any version of WordPress
- With all major hosting companies – Hostgator, GoDaddy, Bluehost
If I’m honest, there’s not much to criticise here. If I did have a complaint it would be that I’d have to remember to take regular backups. However, WP Twin Backup Addon is available as an upsell to this product. Just set up a cron job and away you go. In fairness to Jason and Wil, this is not required to get the benefit of WP Twin.
Finally, at $97 this is not cheap. However, in a world where time is money, when you start benefiting from the time savings this offers you, you’ll start to realise just what a good buy this is. Furthermore, the cost of hiring a techie to restore a hacked site, could easily cost you more than this, always assuming your site was restorable. Finally, for the peace of mind it provides, knowing you’re safe from malicious attacks, this starts to be seen as a steal.
