Create WordPress Backups Using ManageWP Services post provides information about how to create backups using ManageWP services and more.

I have been using ManageWP services for a few years now. I can honestly say that for the little money that I pay on a monthly basis, I receive a fantastic service and super great support. Oh and if you can’t afford to pay any money because of financial circumstances, you can use their free services to manage your sites as per terms of services, (This could change in the future as per ManageWP privacy policies and terms of services). Well done ManageWP team.

It is a great tool to help you manage all the backups for all the WordPress sites you currently manage. You don’t have to log in individually to each site to carry out your backups.
