if we install this on our site to handle automated backup, does this completely relinquish us from having to manually back up anything, or do we still need to backup our database or something else manually? also what forms of added security will this plug in add for our site?

Hello Heather,

Thanks for your interest in iThemes products!

I assume your asking in reference to BackupBuddy. BackupBuddy can be set up to back up your entire WordPress site including the database. You can store these backups in several different destinations including our very own Stash. You won't have manually backup anything, it's fully automated.

BackupBuddy is a backup plugins that you can restore and migrate your site with It's not a security plugin other than in the sense of having backups in case you somehow lose or break your site.

Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks,

Gerroald

Thank you! Yes, I was referring to Backup Buddy. I think this is what we need. Seems everyone speaks highly of it, and Go Daddy recommended it, and I don't have the time to manually backup at the point we're at in our business. Is the cost only a one time fee, or is this membership based pricing, meaning we would have to pay renewal fees?

Hey Heather,

There's a one time fee for the plugin, that includes one year of updates and support. After that year is up if you wish to continue getting updates and support you'll need to renew with a 25% customer loyalty discount. However, even if you choose not to renew you can continue to use the plugin. The licencing does not effect the functionality of the plugin.

Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks,

Gerroald
