Jetpack Backup is a new plugin that focuses specifically on Jetpack’s Backup features.
If you make money from your site, or spend hours perfecting content, you need WordPress backups. Protect your investment by getting your site back online in seconds. Our automated WordPress backup plugin is powerful enough for pros, but easy enough for beginners.
Jetpack Backup is built on WordPress.com’s world‑class infrastructure, so you can be sure your site is safe and can be recovered at any moment. Host backups are often time‑consuming and require technical expertise to restore. You’ve got more important things to do.
Backups are essential for eCommerce stores. New orders come in at any moment, so you need a plan to keep your order and customer data safe. That’s why we designed the Jetpack Backup plugin specifically with WooCommerce in mind.
Save hours of time developing and maintaining sites by restoring to any point. Just one change pays for itself. Real‑time backups go beyond a snapshot to give you total power and flexibility. The activity log lets you know exactly what action (and who) broke the site, so you can look like a pro for your clients.

Most hosts have some sort of backup. But they are often infrequent and difficult to restore. If your site goes down, you need access to your backups. If they’re stored on your hosting platform (or your hard drive!), and your files are compromised, your database backup could be compromised too.
Jetpack’s off-site backup storage allows you to restore a clean version of your WordPress website even if you can’t log in. When you rely solely on your host’s built-in backups, you’re putting all your eggs in one basket. Here is one story from a Jetpack customer of what can happen. Without a third-party backup that copies your files off-site, your website could be at risk. One false move by you or your host could compromise your web files or delete them entirely.
If you don’t have Backups as part of your Jetpack plan, go to your WP Admin and then go to Jetpack > Dashboard > Plans. Depending on your plan, you can get daily or real-time WordPress backups. Daily backups are archived for 30 days, and real-time backups have unlimited storage.
As soon as you purchase Jetpack Backup, it will be activated, and the first backup will be completed. There are barely any settings to configure, and you don’t need coding experience.
Daily backups will take place approximately 24 hours from the previous backup. They occur automatically – you don’t need to create a specific time for backups to run.
You’ll know your WordPress backup has been created if you see a Backup complete event in the activity log.
If Jetpack cannot make contact with your site and it’s not able to create backups, you’ll receive an email after two failed attempts.
