MainWP is a suite of open-source self-hosted plugins & extensions for users that have multiple WordPress sites and want to be able to control them from one central location. This includes sites on different hosts or servers. You can learn more about MainWP’s Pressable extension here.

From the MainWP dashboard a user can control virtually all aspects of WordPress management including updating all of their sites with just one click of a button, schedule automated backups, monitor their sites for downtime, manage content across their network and much more.

Once you have connected your sites (called “child sites”) to your Dashboard you can do almost anything from your MainWP Dashboard that you would be able to do from your child sites’ /wp-admin.
