In a recent presentation called “State of the Word”, WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg has pointed out some interesting facts that we also feel important for the future of ManageWP.
- Out of 100 new domains in US, 22 of them run WordPress – such is the spread of the platform.
- Currently, 14.7% of all websites in the world run WordPress
- 6,800 WP users that took the survey manage 170,000 websites, or an average of 25 websites per user. We only need to get them to try ManageWP.
- One of the most annoying things for users is finding the best plugins. This is something we are working on ManageWP and are finding ways to make this job much easier.
As far as ManageWP goes, we are working hard to bring the next round of features.
Among these, the most sought after is scheduled backups to Amazon S3 and Dropbox which is coming with the next update.
We have also improved the notes system so you can organize your sites in a better way and fixed a whole bunch of problems, most of them related to cloning websites.
Also we are approaching the moment of official launch, something we are very excited about.
There have been a lot of questions on what will the pricing be, and we can say that for the basic set of features (that most of users use ManageWP for) the price will be as low as $1 USD per website, yearly. Also ManageWP will remain free for up to 5 blogs.
