InfiniteWP – A Great Way To Manage Multiple WordPress Instances

Many people who own websites, including myself tend to have more than just one site. Personally I have this site, my personal site, and also a number of other websites that I run and maintain. All of my main websites are managed by WordPress, this is because it’s a great system that allows admins and users to quickly and easily manager their content online.

However, it can be a real pain to manage all of these sites. Especially when it comes to things like updates. So what can you do to make this easier? Well, personally I use InfinieWP. With InfiniteWP you take control of your multiple WordPress sites from one very easy to use interface, it’s completely free but there are addons that you can purchase that allow you to carry out extra administrative duties, however the free version does come equipped with enough for most users:

  • Manage plugin and theme updates
  • Manage backups
  • Add unlimited WordPress sites
  • Batch updates
  • Manage multple WP admin dashboards from one window
  • Single sign on for all sites

There are many other systems out there that offer a similar service to InfiniteWP, ManageWP being the most notable. But what I really like about InfiniteWP is the fact that you host it yourself. You own the management dashboard. For me this is great as it gives me a nice short URL that I can use for the site, and it also means that I am responsible for it. This will be a definite advantage to most website developers out there. Take a look at the video below for a quick overview:

Adding a site to InfiniteWP is done by a simple plugin that’s in the WordPress plugin directory. Simply login as an admin, install/activate the plugin and a popup will be displayed at the top of the screen with the information you need to add into InfiniteWP – simple!

Installing InfiniteWP is also extremely easy using their installation guide. I personally had my site up and running within 10 minutes. I would be lost without InfiniteWP, so if you’re a web designer/blogger, or even if your just a person with a lot of WordPress websites; you should definitely check out InfiniteWP.

    Just out of curiosity, why don’t you use multisite?

      If there’s one thing I’ve learnt over the years it’s that you should never rely on a single point of failure. So having all of my websites using the same installation and the same database is a bad idea. At least this way, if my personal site goes down, all the others stay up. That’s the theory anyway.

        That theory I was looking for. Of course is your opinion. Not wrong not right. I prefer the MU approach, but that is me :). Thanks. Sent from my BlackBerry® wireless device
