You’ll be able to:
- Check backup statuses
- See the last time a site was backed up
You can also copy the backup settings from one site and apply them to other sites that you’re managing.
WP Time Capsule also includes other helpful features like staging sites, partial restores, site migrations, and real-time backups for WooCommerce.
Where WP Time Capsule differs from BlogVault is that it lets you choose your own cloud hosting provider. So rather than integrating cloud hosting into the service, WP Time Capsule just connects to your preferred cloud hosting provider, with options like:
- Amazon S3
- Google Drive
⚙️ How you backup multiple WordPress sites with WP Time Capsule
To get started, you’ll need to sign up for a WP Time Capsule account.
Then, it will prompt you to add your first site:
From there, you’ll need to install the free WP Time Capsule plugin from WordPress.org. Then, during the setup process in your WordPress dashboard, you’ll be able to choose which cloud storage app to connect to:
If you want to manage the backups for multiple sites, you can do that from the WP Time Capsule cloud dashboard.
There, you’ll see the backup status for each site. And if you click the gear icon, you can also quickly restore a site:
WP Time Capsule will also tell you if there are any problems with a site’s backup via the icons above the website list.
💸 Price and details
If you want to try it out, WP Time Capsule offers a full-featured 30-day trial with no credit card required.
After that, you’ll need to pay. One juicy option, though, is that WP Time Capsule offers a lifetime plan. While the upfront cost is pricey, you won’t need to pay ongoing fees (beyond storage costs):
- Business – 2 sites. $49 for a one year license or $149 for a lifetime license.
- Freelancer – 10 sites. $99 for a one year license or $299 for a lifetime license.
- Agency – Unlimited sites. $199 for a one year license or $699 for a lifetime license.
And remember – you’ll also need your own cloud storage. Depending on the size/number of your sites, you might need to pay for this, but cloud storage is still pretty cheap.
For example, if you use Amazon S3, you can pay just $0.023 per GB for infrequent access.
