MainWP, a WordPress Manager You Own

Why your WordPress management should never be a SaaS (Software as a Service)

Are you sharing all the important information about your websites or your clients sites by voluntarily allowing others to gather and store that information on their servers?

If your WordPress management solution is run off a server you don't control then that is exactly what you are doing!

Do you really know what information they are gathering and storing? Are they gathering stats, keywords, profitable niches?

It is our belief that with WordPress management solutions that are hosted on the developer's servers (SaaS) or contain encrypted code that you can never truly know how that information is being used or even what information about your sites is being gathered and stored.

Ask yourself what happens to all that information if it is sold, if your management solution is sold or worse yet if your management company decides to exploit what they have gathered.

You never have to worry about that with MainWP! As a self-hosted solution, you install the MainWP Dashboard plugin on your WordPress site and not on our private server. And with fully auditable, open source code you can be sure we do not track or keep any information about your Child sites. We encourage you to review the code for yourself via GitHub.
