    Many bloggers hosted their blog on Hostgator and running multiple blogs as add-on domain. For them I think it will be easy to follow the full back wizard provided by Hostgator to take a ‘complete’ back up of their blogs within minutes with one attempt. Later if they need they can upload it to DropBox easily, right? Hopes to hear your views in this regard.

    Thanks for this wonderful post.

      @Prashanth That’s a manual way to do same task and there you’ve to download the backup and then manually upload it to Dropbox which can take much time and bandwidth depending on the backup size. Whereas this plugin uses an script to automatically export the entire root directory to Dropbox. And if the add-on domains are in the ROOT directory of primary domain then they will be backed up as well, provided you initiate backup from main domain WP account. Hope you got it.

    Thanks for the clarification Mayur. “provided you initiate backup from main domain WP account” that is the key I think. Now I got it.
