Imagine you woke up tomorrow and as you went to visit your blog there was nothing there. Overnight your site got hacked and now all that is there is spammy ads to make the hacker some money.

You’d be pretty pissed… right?

You contact your hosting only to be told that they only have a limited version. Where do you go from here?

Well, SiteSync is a new cloud product that can backup, download and restore your website. If you get hacked with this product on your side you simply would just get your server cleaned and then restore your site.

Some Quick SiteSync Review Details

What The F*ck Is SiteSync?

SiteSync is a cloud-based software that has been created by Neil Napier and Paul Blitz. Now where there is an internet connection you can automatically backup, download or restore your website.

If your website gets hacked or it contracts a virus you safe and can rest with peace of mind now. If you have a complete backup of your whole site you can restore it on a new server.

Hosting companies tend to only keep a limited backup of your website. To keep your website totally safe you should back it up too.

SiteSync makes that a breeze as you can do this all from within your dashboard.

The dashboard has a menu with all the features down the left-hand side and a clean user interface on the right.

This makes it a breeze to use.

Here is the Site Sync review walkthrough…

SiteSync Review: What Do I Get When I Buy?

For some backup software and plugins, you really have to pay a shit load money to get the service you require. With this software, you can backup, download or restore up to 50 websites for only $37.

This means that you can move all the websites you have on to the one security platform and manage from one location.

If you run your website on the WordPress platform then SiteSync can offer a complete backup service.

If you aren’t though, don’t worry, the software can manage PHP, HTML and FTP websites too.

So it doesn’t matter what platform your website runs on the tool will keep your files safe.

With the different packages Site Sync offer you can add more space. For $37 you get 50Gb of storage which is roughly about 16,000 photos. This should allow you to backup numerous websites, not many business sites will get close to 50GB.

How To Backup Your Website With SiteSync

I don’t want this to be another shitty SiteSync review. I want you to be able to make an empowered decision but also feel confident using the software too.

I am confident that most people will find this task simple whether you are a beginner or advanced webmaster.

Let’s dive right in…

Step One: Log In To Your Dashboard

When you purchase your plan you will be sent a username and password. Head over to SiteSync and log in using these.

When your inside you will land on your dashboard that will show you all the stats you need. This will include how many FTP, WordPress sites and plugins that are being backed up.

Step Two: Log In To Your Dashboard

In your dashboard, you will see a big button and underneath will read “Backup your website.”

Click this button and you will be taken to the add a site section.

When here click the purple plus sign, this will bring up the add site options. You will also see a link to download the plugin for WordPress and the security hash ID.

If you are running a WordPress website I would highly recommend you download the plugin.

Step Three: Upload & Setup Your WordPress Plugin

Do not close Site Sync when you are uploading the plugin as you will need this page to validate.

Once you download the plugin you will install just like you would with any WordPress Plugin. Activate and navigate to the plugin settings.

This is where you enter that security hash ID code.

Step Four: Continue Adding your Site Within Site Sync

Now that the code is added it is time to validate the WordPress site on Site Sync. You will see a validate button on the Add site dialogue. Click here to validate

Once it says successfully validated you are good to go. Click the next button.

This is the part of the setup where you decide how often you should backup your site. For most daily should be sufficient but if you only update your site once a month, then monthly would be fine.

Choose what is applicable for you and click next…

Step Four: Continue Adding your Site Within Site Sync

Now that the code is added it is time to validate the WordPress site on Site Sync. You will see a validate button on the Add site dialogue. Click here to validate

Once it says successfully validated you are good to go. Click the next button.

This is the part of the setup where you decide how often you should backup your site. For most daily should be sufficient but if you only update your site once a month, then monthly would be fine.

Choose what is applicable for you and click next and it will ask you to confirm. Once it does that your site will start being backed up and it will appear in the list of sites.

I must say as I was going through this for the first time everything was pretty self explanatory and could be done in under 5 minutes.

5 minutes to protect your site… no-brainer if you ask me!

You can check the video above to see the full walkthrough.

Pricing And Payment Options

I would say that this is one of the best parts of this tool. It is super affordable. The entry package gives you ample space and starts at $37.

This will give you a limit of 50 sites and 50GB of storage.

For an extra $30 (making the price $67) you can get the Unlimited sites package. You also get notifications straight to your inbox, unlimited client developer license and a license for up to 5 team members.

The other packages offer the ability to backup a YouTube Channel, this is great because a video is such a large medium. Now you don’t have to keep it on your computer.

And the last package gives you the ability to store up to a 1TB of documents from your computer.

Now everything can be managed from SiteSync (the cloud) and you don’t have to worry about things getting lost.

The SiteSync Review Verdict

It has been a total pleasure to reeview SiteSync for Neil Napier and Paul Blitz. Here are the best bits in my opinion.

Price

The software is totally affordable for most budgets. There are more advanced plans for people with more complex setups. So it can serve the biggest majority of businesses.

Ease Of Use

SiteSync has a super clean design making it extremely easy to navigate. I did provide a tutorial above so you can get it setup but without it you really could work it out yourself.

If you are not techy and this seems really overwhelming the above walkthrough and tutorial should clear things up!

Integration 

It is really flexible and at the time of writing it integrates super easily with WordPress. Neil informs me that the tool will integrate with other software such as Adconnect and Instasuite in the future.

As well as WordPress you can backup YouTube Channels and your own documents.

The not so good points…

I think the WordPress integration could be more seamless to make it super easy. Some of the more advanced FTP stuff could confuse the non-techy sort of user.

Having said that if you follow the above tutorial it is super easy.

The other thing is the basic offer is too good. Yeah I know I shouldn’t complain but if you only have a small WordPress blog then your only gonna use a fraction of the 50 GB space limit.

Maybe if document storage was available to use on all plans this would be better.

SiteSync Summary

The truth is you are getting a great deal here and it is so important to backup your website. Nobody can predict whether they will or won’t get hacked so I would say it pays to be safer.

This really is set and forget, well unless you need to restore or download something.

I was really happy to learn about this software.
