I’ve been using the Everest Backup Plugin for WordPress, and it’s been incredibly helpful. One of the standout features of the Everest Backup Plugin is its simplicity. Setting up regular backups of my website has never been easier. I easily set up automatic backups to regularly each month, as that is all I need. The flexibility offered by this plugin is truly remarkable. The Everest Backup Plugin lets me back up my entire website, specific files, or just the database. You get to choose the backup methods you use most often. I go for the full backup. Another aspect that I appreciate is the reliability of the backups. I’ve tested the restoration process multiple times, and each time, it worked flawlessly. Being able to quickly restore my website if anything goes wrong gives me great peace of mind. The plugin works with different storage options like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Amazon S3, making it more convenient. I can choose the storage option that best suits my needs, or my clients needs. My clients can pick the easiest backup and storage option, and I can back up an extra file for them in case they lose their original. The support provided by the Everest Backup Plugin team is also worth mentioning. Whenever I have a question or problem, their knowledgeable support team quickly helps me. I have even been able to talk to the founder and CEO, Prabin. The Everest Backup Plugin is a dependable and easy-to-use backup solution for WordPress websites. It’s an essential tool for any website owner serious about safeguarding their data. Highly recommended! By the way, I have been applying and personally using WordPress backups for 20 years. I used to have to do it manually. A ton of time has been saved and the hassles removed. It simply works out of the digital box. Just add your preferred Everest backup plugins of choice and start the process of backing up or restoring your WordPress instance. Thank you, Prabin Jha and your team for creating a reliable and safe backup solution. To your success!

I first tried Everest Backup after experiencing a few migration and recovery failures with another plugin. Everest succeeded where the other plugin failed, so I switched to Everest. I also use the paid version of Everest. It’s been worth the money to me. Free or paid, backups run quickly. Logging is robust. If you have a paid version, you get a lot of flexibility in cloud options, scheduling, and other neat stuff. Support is a 10 of 10. The team is very responsive, capable, and friendly. The team iterates quickly. Everest is great. 👍

Initially, the plugin works smoothly, but then it gets stuck on a perpetual uploading loop. After contacting the company, they were very friendly, but nothing had happened after weeks. When they offered help, I gave them access, and that was the last I heard from them.There are still issues with the plugin, and it’s hard to tell if it is working or just showing progress without results.The sad part is that they no longer respond to messages. I regret installing this Plugin.

Everest Backup has an excellent customer support service. I emailed them on a Saturday morning and they responded in a couple hours. We then walked through the problem in a Google Meet session where I shared my screen and we worked together to find a solution. It turned out to be an issue with a file size limitation on my VPS, not with the plug-in itself. I recommend their plug-in based on this support, and because it does the job as described.

Look, I get it. You want people to pay for your premium services. I can assure you, and I’m probably not alone in this, that spamming my inbox with lies isn’t going to make me purchase premium. What lies, you might be asking? Several times every week I get an email from you that claims that I’m almost out of space in my Google drive, and that the solution is to purchase your premium services. Well, I wouldn’t say that 80 GB available in my Google drive is the same as “OMG YOU ARE ALMOST OUT OF SPACE!!!” At this rate, I’m more likely to find another backup provider than to purchase your premium services.

Definitely worth 5 stars. Initially with a few starting difficulties, as the migration didn’t work straight away, but the team at Everest Backup didn’t stop and worked on a solution until it worked. Great support. The solution was even integrated into a plugin update, which prevents the problem in the future. I love the migration feature of Everest Backup. The migration took just about 2 minutes. I have tried many migration plugins, but this one is by far the easiest and fastest and from now on my go to migration plugin. Thank you for the great support.
