“How strange and foolish is Insaan. He loses his health in gaining wealth. Then to regain health he wastes his wealth. He ruins his present while worrying about his future, but weeps in the future by recalling his past. He lives as though death shall never come to him, but he dies in a way as if he were never born.” – Ali ibn Abu Talib

How do you backup and extract a WordPress site?
Automattic the company behind WordPress has a solution called VaultPress (http://vaultpress.com/fe
VaultPress provides realtime, continuous backup and synchronization of every post, comment, media file, revision and dashboard setting across at least two separate cloud services in addition to the Automattic grid, ensuring no loss of content. How? Using WordPress hooks to receive alerts when information changes on your site, VaultPress immediately syncs all of
your changes with our servers. The net result? 11 copies of your data,
backed up continuously and in realtime.
Once again its paid service and one that has been highly recommended (in WordPress user group meetings) by those who have been using the service . As for my self I did get an invite to join during the beta/invite only period, however I am yet to use the service for my personal sites.
One can consider other solution mentioned here. However my recommendation is to go with VaultPress for the services it provides beyond just a online backup such as pushing fixes to zero-day security vulnerabilities and monitoring intrusions. VaultPress is brought to you by some of the world’s most experienced WordPress developers, including the team behind WordPress.com.

There are many ways this can be achieved. It’s all depends on how you’d prefer to manage your subscribers and what kind of experience your user will receive. I will try to cover one method here today.
The very simple method: WordPress site Membership
What does that means for you?
No need to install any extra plugins, simple and most easiest way to get up and running.
What does that means for your subscribers?
Your subscribers will get an update via email when you publish new post.
- You can see/manage all your subscribers on the WordPress Admin Dashboard.
- No way of knowing if people have read your (email) post or visited your
website as result. You can address this by using some kind of analytics
tools. Most website/blogs use Google Analytics. Knowing if subscribers
read your post would require a bit more complex setup.
- Can’t do much with the subscribers data straight away.
How to enable Membership in 5 easy step?
- Login to your WordPress admin dashboard
- Goto “Settings” Menu
- Tick Membership check box for Anyone can register
