VaultPress has quietly opened up signups to anyone, forgoing the golden ticket requirement they have mainted for the better part of the last year. Previously a golden ticket was required, which was either a specific invite from VaultPress itself or a current user. Now anyone can freely visit their signup page and opt to regularly send them money. Congrats!
The last public mentions of golden tickets by VaultPress were on their blog on March 15 and on Twitter on May 26. Then last week Automattic’s own Andy Skelton noticed the change and tweeted that the golden ticket requirement had been removed.
Do you use VaultPress for backups? Were you waiting for a golden ticket?
