Three weeks ago, I was checking on one of my WordPress sites and after pasting in my URL, was given a clear screen with a bold statement that my account was suspended. My horror turned to serious panic as there was nothing I could do to enter my site. My host provider was most helpful and after a flurry of emails, I had my hosting back up and running. The sad news was that somehow two of my sites had been hacked and removed. Not being of a technical bent, I was at a loss at what to do. My host provider casually mentioned that I could re-install the site with my back-up copy. My silence obviously led to some concern on their part as I had no idea what they were talking about.
The short story is that I had to rebuild my site from scratch, but fortunately I keep all the components of my sites in separate files on my desktop. The time taken to start the site from new was not my idea of fun. Then I was fortunate enough to get a copy of the new Replikator Pro to use and review.
Replikator Pro Review
The Replikator Pro is a script which can clone, back up and store your site. The Pro keeps a copy of all the site widgets, plugins, theme and database along with all of their settings. These can also be backed up once the site is up and running when you stipulate at what interval you want the back-ups to occur. This is what I find to be the beauty of the Replikator Pro, as you can dictate what and when it does its thing quietly but efficiently in the background.
Key Specs for the Replikator Pro
The Pro comes in a zipped file along with videos on how to use the script. Once you have downloaded the files, and watched the tutorials, the ease of use becomes apparent.
The Replikator Pro: The Pros
For a one stop shop for cloning and backing up your site, it will be hard to find anything to touch the Replikator Pro. I have recently bought cloning software for PLR site sales, but nothing can do what the Replikator Pro can.
The Replikator Pro: The Cons
At first, seeing that there were two or three components in files was daunting for a non techie like me. However, the more I use it, the more I find that it is not an issue.
Is The Replikator Pro Worth Buying?
Without a doubt, it does what it says on the tin and it does it well. I have no worries about my sites now, and do not worry about their databases being lost (again). So for my money, you cannot do better than the Replikator Pro.
