Thanks Anweb, the Export option that's already built into WordPress can be used to create a backup of all your sites posts/pages/user accounts/settings etc etc. You can download them all as an XML file which can be used to restore your site after a corruption or loss of data or when you wish to move your WordPress site from one site to another. You'll have to install WordPress first but then you can import the XML file and all your posts/pages/accounts/settings etc will be restored. Has helped me on many ocassions!

I have used Duplicator for my own websites. However as far as clients are concerned. I suggest them using the vaultpress plans. The reason being backup on those are lot better. Also they can be worry free as it is automated. And then moving to another host is painless as it can get. So for those who want to spend money, they should go for the vaultpress.

I know this plugin even though I have never used it. I have never felt the need to duplicate or migrate my website. For back up I use a different plugin and backup on my dropbox.
