The WPBackItUp Tools List is a growing list of tools and products we use at WPBackItUp to enhance our websites and businesses.

Liquid Web Managed WordPress Hosting

Liquid Web
  • 100% Managed WordPress hosting
  • Virtual Private Servers(VPS)
  • Incredible performance
  • No plugin restrictions
  • 24/7/365 Support(live chat,phone,helpdesk)

WPBackItUp is currently using Liquid Web(Storm VPS Managed WordPress) for hosting and we couldn’t be happier. The performance, customer service and tools they offer are stellar. They even supply free SSL certificates for all your sites, which can be quite costly with other hosting providers. Liquid Web is very competitively priced so if you are looking for the absolute best performance then you should consider moving to a private server and Liquid Web .

SiteGround WordPress Hosting

  • 100% Managed WordPress hosting
  • Shared Hosting
  • Great performance
  • No plugin restrictions
  • 24/7/365 Support(live chat,phone,helpdesk)

WPBackItUp used SiteGround’s shared hosting for many years and were very happy with their cost, performance and customer service. We decided to move to a private server in 2016 so we could better manage performance of our growing customer base. Siteground shared hosting is very competitively priced so if you are looking for a really solid shared hosting provider then you should consider Siteground.

WP Engine Managed WordPress Hosting

WP Engine
  • 100% Managed WordPress hosting
  • Shared Hosting
  • Great performance
  • Some plugin restrictions
  • 24/7/365 Support(live chat,phone,helpdesk)

WPEngine is another solid hosting provider. Before moving to Liquid Web we evaluated their offerings and were very happy with their performance, customer service and prices. Ultimately we went with Liquid Web because WPEngine is fairly restrictive of the plugins you can install. We love using WPBackItUp for all our backups too so while WPBackItUp is approved to run on WPEngine, ultimately we could not chose a provider that one day might not allow WPBackItUp. However, this may not be an issue for most people so if you are looking for solid performance and excellent customer service then WPEngine is a good option.


Drip Email Marketing

Drip Email Marketing
  • Visual workflow builder
  • Identify your best leads
  • Send targeted emails
  • Easily capture email addresses

WPBackItUp uses Drip to mange all our email marketing campaigns so if you have ever received an email from us then there is a good chance it was sent by drip. We have been using Drip since 2014 and have watched it grow into an incredible platform for email marketing. If you are curious about how we are using Drip then you can read about us on their blog.

So if you are ever need a developer for something you either can’t do or just don’t want to do then do yourself a favor and take a look at WPCurve Their prices, developers and customer service are all excellent.
