Domain name and Web hosting powerhouse GoDaddy, who over the past few years has extended its offerings dramatically, has acquired ManageWP, a platform that makes it possible to manage multiple WordPress websites from a single dashboard.
ManageWP may be best known for its multisite capabilities but it offers a range of other services including website monitoring, backups, migration, deployment and publishing as well. GoDaddy will likely offer some of the ManageWP's premium features for free in order to attract new clients.
“GoDaddy is serious about investing in WordPress, and ManageWP is by far the leading tool for managing WordPress sites,” explained Jeff King, SVP of hosting at GoDaddy.
“Together, we’ll bring ManageWP to the scale of GoDaddy, helping web designers and developers save thousands of work hours and touch millions of websites globally, no matter where they are hosted.”
