Leeds, UK, and Houston, Texas – 11/09/2012 – Backup Technology, world leaders in fully managed Online Backup, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Services, today announced that its free Online Backup for Word Press Plugin has now reached an important milestone with in excess of 100,000 downloads. This makes Online Backup for Word Press the most popular fully featured, free Word Press backup plugin.

With the vast amount of time and investment that currently goes into running a blog or a website, the plugin was created by Backup Technology under the pretext of offering a simple backup system that provides protection for Word Press sites and their data. What began as a small project has increasingly grown since its inception in 2009, to become a trusted backup platform that users rely on.

Backup Technology’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Ritchie Fiddes confirms this:

“We are proud to have produced a completely free service that so many people use and trust to protect their websites. The response from the Word Press community has been fantastic and we continue to add new features and functionality based on our users feedback.”

Unlike other plugins, Online Backup for Word Press can even encrypt your backup data to keep it secure while it is downloaded, emailed, or stored on Backup Technology’s Secure Servers.

The plugin can backup your site’s database (containing settings, pages, posts and comments) as well as its file system (containing media, attachments, themes and plugins) to any one of three places:

1. Backup Technology’s secure data centres with 100MB free online storage space
2. Your email inbox
3. A downloadable ZIP file

Other Online Backup for Word Press features include:

• Easy to use
• Configuration checklist to help you get started
• Schedule daily or weekly backups to email or free online storage
• Downloaded on-demand backups in ZIP file
• Only backs up files that have changed since the last backup
• Full AES encryption support
• Exclude files and folders
