Great plugin and service. I've used this at two different jobs (web agencies) and it's been super helpful while saving a bunch of time.
Service requires no extensive/technical configurations either. Its pretty sweet. Try it out for yourself!
We have been using iControlWP for some time to help manage the updates of multiple sites from one location. Makes life much easier and exactly what the system was built for.
The control panel is easy to use and their Support Team are always on hand (and quick to respond) to help resolve any issues.
I would highly recommend anyone with multiple WP sites use iControlWP to help organise the constant updates on the core, plugins and themes of WordPress.
I have been looking for a new WP manager. I am leaving ManageWP and have tested iControlWP, InfiniteWP, CMScommander.
I like iControlWP the best. Easy to use interface with robust features.
But I am not using their service because the only backup system available is their own. This is fine... it seems like a good system, but they then charge for storage (sure there is free storage to a point, but if you go over it, then they hit your for $30).
I have 30 sites and there is no way my backups are going to fit within the free storage limits. This makes their service economically impossible for me.
If they offered to backup to my own cloud (googledrive) I would pick iControlWP hands down. But being forced (and charged) to use their storage is a deal breaker.
I recommend this for small developers who don't have a lot of clients or who have other backup options.
Meanwhile I will continue my serve for the next WP manager.
I have used Shield and iControlWP during the last six months.
These solutions are simple to use, easy to live with and very convenient when you have some or many customers websites to follow.
There is a great support and you don't feel like an anonymous when you exchange emails with Paul.
So, happy to recommend Paul and his solutions! :-)
We are really happy with iControlWP and WorpDrive. Saves a lot of time managing and backing up multiple clients websites. The control panel is easy to understand and navigate. Would highly recommend.
We used iControlWP for about a year across a number of sites and had no problems at all.
When we did have a support question it was answered within thoroughly within less than an hour by Paul.
The only reason that we have stopped using the plugin/services is because we have moved to a new managed hosting provider, and the services that we used iControlWP for are now being taken care of by them.
My website is strictly not for profit and a hobby. But security and backup are not things that should be left to chance. I have gone from six security plugins to one. My site is running at least three times faster. Honestly these guys bend over backwards to help and they are always in development mode, fixing issues and improving the site. Give the 30 days free trial a run.
I've been using this service for nearly a year now and I absolutely love it! Combined with their Shield security plugin, it does it all. I don't have to worry about getting hacked, or my website backups not working, and I can even update all my plugins in a few clicks.
I wouldn't live without it! Thank you so much iControlWP team!
At Cloud Genius, we use iControlWP to backup lots of our clients' websites.
It is easy to use and extremely reliable.
If there are any problems with the backups, it lets us know in a timely fashion. Normally the problem is easily resolved by us.
When we need to contact support, the response is close to instantaneous and they always come up with a solution. In a recent case, the time from reporting to resolution was under 5 minutes. Keep it up!
I'm a icontrolWP client for a few years now. The service is in my daily use and I manage about 15 sites. New sites are added in a click and it takes 2 minutes to do so.
Everything is in control via this tool and it never messed during this time.
The contact to the customer service is awesome: Friendly and competent answers in minutes, even on a saturday evening. Thanks for this tool!
