UpdraftPlus is thrilled to announce our one year anniversary UpdraftClone celebration. UpdraftClone is the simple to use service that allows you to create a cloned test site instantly and directly from UpdraftPlus. We created the highly popular Clone feature to meet a need after we realised just how difficult it is for users to simply and easily copy and create an existing WordPress site. Once the idea for UpdraftClone was formed, we then decided to rethink just how a cloning feature could and should actually work.

Since UpdraftClone was launched in September 2018, we have helped thousands of users to effectively copy and paste their WordPress site using our state of the art cloning feature. UpdraftClone has proven to be very popular with the WordPress community and has grown considerably over the last 12 months, with the amount of people using UpdraftClone increasing by 400% since it’s launch. 

UpdraftPlus has made efforts to continually improved our clone service over the last 12 months, starting with the release of a new SQLadmin feature in April 2019. This new feature allows user to have access to the MYSQL admin panel, which gives you the ability to manage a cloned site databases directly within you my-clones page.

But we didn’t stop there. In July 2019 we launched another new feature that allows clone users to spin out empty WP installs with just a few clicks. This new clone feature is perfect for testing new plugins, themes or designs.

This has proven to be highly popular as it uses the same clone token system as UpdraftClone and lets you create a simple test site that you can throw away once you are done testing. While we may be just a simple WordPress backup and cloning plugin trying to make our way in the universe, that seems like a great idea to us. On top of these improvements, we aim to keep improving clone with new and exciting features. One of these soon to be released features gives the added ability to clone subfolder based multi sites and subdomain multi sites. Be sure to keep an eye out for it in the near future. 

To celebrate the anniversary of UpdraftClone, we are giving users an exclusive 20% discount for the next 7 days. Just use the code “Kamino2019” at the checkout.
