BackupMyBlog is a new service currently in public beta, that will automatically back up blogs daily. This is a much needed and a Welcome tool for the WordPress community. Which is what we all use as our blogs backend.
BackupMyBlog backups are fully redundant on two separate servers in two locations, so its extremely unlikely you’ll lose your main blog as well as both backups. However, the service has a 10 mb limit and older post backups are deleted as soon as that limit is reached. Hopefully they’ll have options for more storage once the service is out of beta.
BackupMyBlog, currently can only be used by those “whose blogs are hosted on their own domain (i.e. pre hosted blogs such as Blogger, Blogsome etc. won’t be able to use the product), as it’s required to add a PHP script on your blog server. If you are hosting your blog on your domain, though, you shouldn’t face any problem.
The product is free during its beta period. No word on pricing after that.
