Compare Us With Other Apps & Services

Similar Management Panels Don't Meet The Needs Of WordPress Professionals

  • There are lots of apps that say they support WordPress. But most of them simply do the bare minimum and don't optimize WordPress for best performance and security.
  • Only apps that focus primarily on WordPress seem to get it right. But even those seem to miss some of the most obvious things. Like disabling a site. Or offering a UI for PHP options.
  • And none of them, including the ones that come closest to getting it right, is a pure WordPress open source plugin! Are they even using WordPress to drive the APP you're going to use? If not, then you have to ask the obvious question - why not?

OOPS: Ok, we have to apologize.  We created a spreadsheet table below which unfortunately is hard to navigate on a mobile device.  Maybe just send a link to your email and view the whole thing on a wide screen later?  We're still trying to figure out how to compress all this data down to their most essential elements for viewing on smaller devices.

WordOps and Easy Engine are pure command line tools - there is no UI or dashboard.
