When Your WordPress Management Dashboard Goes Down

So, you’ve discovered the amazing benefits of running your own WordPress server and now have a half a dozen or more of them on your favorite [WordPress] server management panel.

But what do you do when it goes down?

Whether you like it or not, all SaaS products have downtime and that includes most WordPress server management dashboards.

Whether it’s Cloudways, Gridpane, SpinupWP, Ploi or something else, they will all eventually be down – whether planned or unplanned. After-all, even Gmail & YouTube go down from time-to-time.

In most cases an outage of the management panel will not affect you – you don’t spend a lot of time inside them anyway.

But, in the case of unplanned outages, you have no recourse. Even large software products such as AZURE and CLOUDFLARE can have hours of unplanned downtime.

If you’re unlucky enough to have your management dashboard be down when you really need it, then what?

Well, the nice thing about WordPress management panels & dashboards is that, even when they’re down, your servers are up and running. So, in a pinch, you can log into your servers and do your thing.

It’s one of the great benefits of running your own servers. If a regular host is down, many times you might not have alternate access to manage your site. When you’re running your own servers you have options that others might not have.

A Better Way

But, wouldn’t it be great if you had yet another alternative for your WordPress management dashboard downtime? One where you didn’t have to worry about your dashboard going down at all?

WPCloudDeploy has that option.

Remember – it’s just another WordPress site.

So, if something happens to the site, all you have to do is restore it to a different domain or location and you’re back in business.

It’s yet another example of the subtle advantage you gain when you own 100% of your stack – including your Server Admin Panel!
