So they cool kids over at Automattic have done it again. They have produced a new product, with a great name that will do great things. What great things? How about protect your entire blog (or site) that is built on WordPress. Not just the content, but the plugins and everything else. Here is what VaultPress.com has to say about it:

VaultPress is the only restoration service built on the Automattic grid that reliably serves over 10 million WordPress.com blogs and 250 million monthly visitors. VaultPress protects more than just your content. VaultPress understands the complete WordPress environment. This means your plugins, dashboard, themes, comments, and even your post revisions are all safeguarded and ready to be restored.

They plan to charge $15/month (give or take) but right now you can apply for your golden ticket at VaultPress.com, which will get you access to the service for free while they are still testing things out.

The golden passes are being handed out at random, so head over and sign up!
