Backup your online accounts in a jiffy

Imagine, you have all you important messages on Gmail (or any other free services for that matter)  and suddenly, a meteor strikes Google servers deleting all your data! or some Hacker intrudes your account and swipes it clean! What are you going to do? There no guarantee that you’ll get it back.


To prevent this horrifying situation, you can backup your data using a service called Backupify (powered by Amazon). This service can backup

  • Gmail
  • Twitter
  • Google Docs
  • Flickr
  • Facebook
  • Basecamp
  • WordPress
  • Delicious
  • Photobucket
  • Blogger
  • FriendFeed
  • More coming soon… (Tumblr, Youtube, RSSfeed)

If you have a self hosted WordPress blog, you can also use the backupify plugin to backup all your blog post.

If you register your account now (before January 31, 2010), you’ll have an account free for life! So, what are you waiting for kiddies? Go get it! Otherwise, you’ll have to pay about $4/month.

Hey that is really great we all know the problem with free services like blogger is that you have no control over your data.. the biggest nightmare of any blogger is to wake up one day to find that his blog has been deleted by Google !!

I know there are services which claim to backup your blog, but I am not impressed by those. This one coming from amazon must be good. And the plus point is that it supports so many other services. I am registering for it now, are you ?? 😛
