We were recently asked by Matt Mullenweg over at WordPress / Automattic to not use the domain that contained their trademark “WordPress” in it or he would need to remove us from the WordPress directory.
Following a few email exchanges with Matt, I decided it was in the best interest of the plugin to move the official website into a directory of our main website. Though I am disappointed that we won’t get to utilize the awesome domain name of WordPressBackup.org, I understand Matt & Automattic’s point of view on the matter. They are building a business and need to protect their assets.
In any case, we’ve moved the website over to http://www.webdesigncompany.net/automatic-wordpress-backup. We’ll still be providing the same level of support as we have in the past and will likely be introducing a few new features to the website, such as a real support forum. In addition, we’ve got some exciting new features coming up soon for the plugin.
2010 will be a fantastic year for both AWB and for WordPress. I wish everyone continued success and hope to connect with you at some point.
