I was sitting here in my pajamas at 5 am in the morning, tired and wide awake, and go to my favorite website right now to find out if did what I asked it to do while I was asleep. YES! It did! When does that ever happen? Well tonight it did, and raised the bar a little bit as far as I am concerned as to what I look for in a website. It was a reminder to me why, as a developer, we need to charge for what we do. This isn’t a big name company, but if it continues to do what its doing as efficiently as it has then we are looking at a contender here, at least in my book. So much so that it warranted me to write a review, and have as many people experience this Disney World of websites as possible. It is also a reminder of what a geek I truly am.
As a web designer, I am inundated with emails promising me that if I use a particular piece of software, my life will get easier. I buy this pitch time and time again like a dog begging for treats, yet all it gets is a pat on the head at the end. Sometimes it gets the treat, so it is worth the constant humiliation when it does. If you stay in the game long enough a gem like ManageWP comes along. And Yes, I became an affiliate because I’m not as slow as people think, although I do choose with whom I affiliate with very carefully.
On with it web geek, give us the story Father Mc Grory, and enough of this incessant rambling. OK, it is called ManageWP and it does the following for me right now – It manages WordPress, MY WordPress.
- Tracks my plugins and themes and whether they need updating or not, and will update them from there
- Uptime monitoring
- Daily, Weekly, and monthly backups
- Black and white listing checking
- SEO Keyword checking with Google and others
- Clone and Migrate any website
- Client reporting – nice touch!
- Track spam comment in all of the sites
I mean there is a manure truck full of other stuff it can do, but too many to ist here. Your best bet is to put on your crash helmet, and your seatbelt so that you can head on over to manageWP and test drive this for yourself. As I said, so far so good with this tool, and finally something that is so useful, I’d be nuts to keep it out of my toolbox.
Oh yeah, before I nod off again, the pricing is very reasonable right now, and does get more inexpensive per site, the more sites you have. As of this writing their price for one website is as follows:
One-click login to any dashboard
Install, manage plugins & themes
$0.80 per website / Month
$2 per website/ month
So there you have it – give it a try, and let me kow your comments about it below.
