After only creating staging sites to test plugin dev versions for years, today I had my first brush with the backup feature of WP Staging. And I have to say, it’s incredibly well-made! I had to back up a demo site I put a lot of work into and I was prepared to spend half a workday comparing backup plugins and hours more of troubleshooting when my colleague reminded me of the backup feature of our trusted staging plugin. Boy, good thing he did! I was done in minutes. I browsed the documentation on WP Staging’s website, made a few clicks, and after less than 30 seconds of processing, my backup was done, and the single file was downloaded to my computer. Wow. When I set out, I was prepared to just trust the plugin and omit to test restoring the backup. But after the great backup experience—and since reporting losing days of work to a faulty or incomplete backup to your boss isn’t fun—I was curious to see how well the restore feature works. Once again, click, click, the upload was done, all warning messages were heeded, and the site was restored to its new home. The result? As if it had never moved at all. Simply perfect. All media URIs point to the new site, my ads pop up in their places, not one error message. I know one single use is too little to judge, but from what I can tell, WP Staging is a business-grade backup and restore solution even my kids could reliably operate. Great job!

As a web developer who regularly works with WordPress, finding a reliable and efficient backup and migration tool is crucial. I recently discovered WP STAGING, and it has been a game-changer for my workflow. What Stands Out: Speed and Reliability: WP STAGING has proven to be exceptionally fast and dependable. The plugin offers a smooth experience, significantly reducing the time I spend on backups and migrations. User-Friendly Cloning: The one-click cloning feature is fantastic. It allows me to create a copy of a WordPress site effortlessly, which is particularly useful for testing and development purposes. Migration Ease: Transferring sites, whether for development or live deployment, is incredibly straightforward. The plugin handles link replacement and other technicalities automatically, making the process hassle-free. Data Security: I appreciate that all data remains on my server, with no reliance on cloud services. This aspect is vital for client confidentiality and data security. Multisite Support: As someone who often works with multisite setups, WP STAGING’s support for cloning and pushing multisites is invaluable. Robust Code and Excellent Support: The robust, well-tested code gives me confidence in its reliability. Additionally, the responsive support team is a great resource when I need technical assistance. Suggested Improvements: While WP STAGING excels in many areas, I would love to see enhancements in its integration capabilities with more cloud storage providers. This would provide additional flexibility for off-site backups. Recommendation: I highly recommend WP STAGING to other WordPress professionals and agencies. Whether you’re managing a single site or multiple client projects, this plugin offers the efficiency, security, and reliability you need. It’s a must-have tool in my WordPress toolkit and has paid for itself many times over in terms of time saved and peace of mind.

My team and I are using WP STAGING PRO to quickly spin up sites to test new plugin features or debug an issue that was reported to us. There are days when I have been creating multiple sites like this. Even though ours might be a very particular use case, I could not wish for a better solution. My colleagues also love it so my biggest pain point is getting them to clean up old test sites 🙂 Whenever we had a suggestion or something didn’t work, René and his team were quick to respond and eager to help. Looking forward to a thousand more sites!

I use it for testing upgrades in a shop and for the preview of a template change. Works really good and you even don't have to setup a new subdomain.

This plugin runs smoothly. I purchased the freelancer plan and right after the developers' plan to use it on unlimited sites. Definitely worthy. No problems so far.

WP Staging is one of the few WordPress premium plugins, that always works out of the box. I use it not only for my websites, but also in support cases, and recommend WP Staging to my clients. It's super easy to create a fully staged multisite network environment where I can test updates and settings before applying them to my live website. It's great to have such an easy way to test something without affecting the live site. 6 of 5 stars!

Congratulations on the excellent plugin. Would recommend with eyes closed. Success to the whole team for the development of such an efficient plugin.

Fast and Functional. This is the easiest way to explore and test without destroying the live web site.

Excellent Support and great Plugin!The plugin is a great help working on a copy of a live page. But I have to mention, that the support is excellent. Super quick, helpful, easy and very friendly. 5 stars!

Very useful and work fine! Just what I wanted: this plugin allowed me to make several attempts to fix compatibility issues in a website that hadn’t been updated for a long time..

Super App! Just what I wanted: this plugin allowed me to make several attempts to fix compatibility issues in a website that hadn’t been updated for a long time..

Great help how to test new functions.

Great stuff! This is a wonderful help when trying to debug faulty plugins etc. Thank you!

WP Staging – Easy even for a 70 year old. OK…I screwed something up…but the support was phenomenal, They went into my site and fixed it. It works great.

Easy to install and use

Great way to revamp website. I’m glad I found this plugin. I wanted to update the look and feel of my website and didn’t know how to do so without having to shut down the site for maintenance. So I did a Google search and came across this. I was able to clone my website to test out a new theme. It worked great. I was able to create a test site with a new theme, features, and more without messing up my current website. However, be careful to make sure you have the orange bar at the top of your WordPress dashboard before making any changes. This tells you that you’re working on the staging site. And once you’re done, you can transfer it all to your live site once you’ve made backups. It did what it was created to do, so I’m happy.
