All Your WordPress Websites Under A Single Admin – ManageWP (2 Licenses Giveaway)
WordPress releases a new version regularly and websites built with it needs to be up-to-date to stay secure, the same goes with the plugins and the need to remember all passwords.
ManageWP is a hosted service that offers a platform for managing any number of WordPress blogs under the same admin interface.
About the giveaway: They are giving away 2 annual Business accounts to WRD readers and details can be found at the bottom of the post.
Besides the ability to switch between websites with a click, the service can bulk update the sites with the new WordPress versions, plugins and themes.
Also, it is possible to install new plugins or themes to multiple websites at the same time.
There is a good chance that each website gets a hosting switch every few years which is a time-consuming process. What if we need to move many WordPress blogs to this new account? Ouch! But, as you guess, ManageWP can also handle this; it can clone a website from one domain to another.
One of the best features is its integrated backup. You can schedule backups to make sure that all your websites have recent copies when needed. It also monitors the uptime of your websites via the integration with the free uptime monitoring service: Uptime Robot.
The service brings a similar beauty for the publishing part: you can post an entry to multiple sites, manage the blogroll links or add users, all in bulk.
ManageWP has a free plan that allow controlling up to 3 websites and bigger packages exist (which would be a good fit for anyone/web agency with many WP websites).
