WordPress management is more than just updates!

The MainWP plugin gives you full control to both manage and maintain your WordPress sites through a centrally located Dashboard, even sites on different hosts!

As a self-hosted management solution you install the MainWP Dashboard plugin directly on your WordPress site and not on our private server. By self-hosting the Dashboard you never need to worry what information is being potentially gathered about your connected sites. And with fully auditable, open source code you can be sure we do not track or keep any information about your WordPress sites.

To get started all you need to do is install the MainWP Dashboard plugin on a new WordPress site or sub-domain and follow the quick setup guide. You then install the MainWP Child plugin on any WordPress site that you want your MainWP Dashboard to control. Once both plugins are activated all you need to do is simply connect the two sites.

Once a site is connected you’re ready to handle virtually any of your daily WordPress tasks directly from your MainWP Dashboard including working on your posts and pages, supervising users, making backups, controlling updates and much more all at no cost!
