Welcometo the forums, and thank you for considering BackupBuddy! :)
I'll focus on BackupBuddy. In addition to many other things, here is what we offer:
1 :We do not offer just "cloning" - even cPanel backups can kind of do that. We offer world class backup system that you fully control on your own website, manage and diagnose.
2 :We offer the best restoration of such data around via BackupBuddy. You can restore it easily.
3 :Have a complex or non-usual server or site setup? We'll work with you to make sure BackupBuddy works on your system or to ensure you know exactly what steps you or your host can take to enable smooth sailing for BackupBuddy or help you pinpoint the reason behind any issues.
4 :We offer scheduling: want backups every hour? Done! Want backups every night? Done! Want only database backups sent to your email and full backups saved on your server in a secure place that others cannot download? Done!
5 :Want to automatically send your backups into the cloud, like to Amazon S3 for example or FTP into some specific server? BackupBuddy allows you to do that [I have my own site backups every night saved on the server and sent to my S3 buckets :) ].
6 :Want extras like zip compression? Done! BackupBuddy gives you that and many, many more options and settings.
7 :Want to exclude some categories while including others in the backup? Done! BackupBuddy does that.
8 :Want world class support on the forums that's open to all BackupBuddy users where you can search a wealth of knowledge from previous questions and topics and also ask any questions openly in front of others? Done! BackupBuddy forums do just that. We don't hide anything we post in the forums; everything is transparent. You don't have to deal with a ticket system in this aspect. The same awesome support you get with your Builder Theme you'll get on the BackupBuddy side also.
9 :We are a real business [ www.pluginbuddy.com - www.ithemes.com - www.webdesign.com ]. We're not going anywhere but higher and higher. :) So you can be assured this plugin will be supported and maintained for a long, long time.
10 :Want regular updates? There's a dedicated team for BackupBuddy. BackupBuddy is updated regularly with feature requests, bug fixes and enhancements. Your suggestions and voices help dictate the future of BackupBuddy.
11 :You don't have to scroll at least 10 times on the BackupBuddy page to read everythinghttp://pluginbuddy.com/purchase/backupbuddy/:)
Please let us know if you have any other or specific questions. We would be more than happy to have you as a BackupBuddy user.
