“WordPress-based sites are an easy prey for even intermediate level hackers,” according to the creators of a website backup system. “The cases of blogs being hacked are becoming too commonplace.” That’s the view of Wilson Mattos and Jason Fladlien, the brains behind WP Twin.
The duo claims their software “creates foolproof backups” of an entire WordPress site with just the click of a button, but that wasn’t their initial intention.
“The main application of the tool is to clone existing WordPress blog installations and speed up the set up of blogs by deploying cloned templates. However, there is a surprising benefit to cloning sites,” the software’s info states.
“During the process of cloning, an exact replica of the existing site is created, packed into a neat archive, downloaded and safely stored on the local hard drive – thus creating a perfect backup.”
WP Twin costs $97 and is available now.
