How to Automatically Backup Your WordPress Website

WordPress makes it really easy to add new pages, but at the same time makes it easy for someone to easily crash the site or delete a page on accident. Add that to the fact that hackers are always looking for a way to hack your website, one of the best investments you can make is setting up automated backups of your website. Backup Buddy not only backups up your site but also offers a security scan to make sure your site is always secure. Backup to your server, Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud, FTP, or e-mail. Quickly and easily restore your site on the same server or migrate to a new server with a different domain and database. The process is easy, fast, and reliable. Check it out here on the Backup Buddy website

  1. Some nice looking themes! But curious, why 44? lulz!

  2. WilmaP says:

    Never mind the number of themes!! I mean, these babies look like they’re the cream of the crop. From the looks of it, there’s a whole slew of themes here that can fit right into any need or application. +1 Chris. Cheers!!!

  3. Robin Sterling says:

    @Wilma. These theme selections definitely show a lot of promise. I’m quite familiar with some of them but I have to admit that there’s quite a number of themes here that really catch your eye upon first glance. I basically use 3-5 templates for my online stores and I think I just might add a couple more.

  4. H delacruz says:

    At Jason- I think the author of the post chose the nice looking ones that he/she could probably find. I’m an avid follower of Chris’s theme posts and one thing I can assure you is that this list of themes will get a constant update. You can count on that.

  5. Johnny Gavin says:

    These are by far the nicest, most stylish themes I have seen in a LONG time. Way to go! I’ll be downloading one as soon as I can decide which one to pick lol.

  6. Monica Sotela says:

    Agreed! These are all so nice! I love the quality of photos that were used in these themes. But the top 44? Why such an odd number? LOL, funny, but hey, it works! :P

  7. Rob Kisilowski says:

    Perfect collection of templates! I enjoy all the fresh, new images. Everything on your website is so professional looking. Keep up the great work!

  8. Adam says:

    What is odd about 44? I assume that the author knew of 44 themes that he particularly liked. In which case, 40 would have meant omitting some and 50 would have involved scratching around for 6 more themes that may not have been as good in his view.

    This is a very good collection and most of them are new to me. A lot of theme round-ups tend to overlap each other.

  9. Margareta says:

    I simply adore the King Size WordPress Theme. If there was a top 10 best WordPress Themes, this would be the number one for me. It is simply amazing!

  10. Opinia says:

    These 44 best WordPress Themes of 2012 are chosen by the author of this post right? I have a few favorites. RockWell and Village are two of them.

  11. Lisa Burner says:

    No wonder why they are on the list of the best WordPress themes. The themes look so unique and appealing. More businesses will probably purchase WordPress themes from now on.

  12. WanderingMommy says:

    I like all of the themes you have here. I feel like I want to try them one by one. I’ll also recommend these themes to my friends so they will know how amazing these themes are.

  13. Enda Arriano says:

    I never heard about Apollo but this review convinces me to give them a try …

  14. Lord Template says:

    Great List of WordPress Theme..

    Like It..

  15. Paul A says:

    Amazing themes collection, thank you for sharing all the stuff at free.
