ManageWP makes backing up and restoring your website easy, with scheduled backups and one-click restores you can put your mind at ease if anything goes wrong. This is a great premium feature that should be a minimum standard for all WordPress websites, especially those that run online stores.

- Local download for backups

The ManageWP white-label tool allows you to re-brand the plugin and make it your own, or you can hide the plugin entirely for any developers with maintenance plans.
This tool allows you to track, monitor, and record your chosen keywords. It allows you to see key metrics all in one place including who your top competitors are. This tool is the perfect accompaniment to an SEO tool.
The uptime monitor does exactly what it says on the tin. It instantly notifies you when your WordPress website goes down so you can fix it before your customers or your client notice. When a website goes down, you’re losing visitors and potential revenue, with the uptime monitor you can ensure that you’re always the first to know when your website goes down.
Sucuri security check
The Sucuri security check gives you peace of mind that your website is being scanned 24/7 for any infections, blacklists, or malware. If anything is detected on your next scan you will be notified immediately so you can rectify the issue and repair any potential hacks or threats.
The performance check gives you a brief insight into how well your website is performing. Much like GTmetrix it gives you two scores and grades, it also gives you an outline of what needs to be improved as shown below.
The link monitor is an extremely powerful tool that checks all the links within posts and pages on your WordPress website. It gives you an overview of; Response codes, Link URLs, Link text, and which content on the page the broken link belongs to.
Broken links can have really negative effects on SEO and user experience which can result in a loss of revenue. Using the link monitor allows you to keep on top of broken links so you can fix them as soon as they’re picked up.
The client report module allows you to schedule and send each client a full breakdown of the changes and updates that have been made on their website. It is the perfect way to impress clients by showing just how much work it takes to maintain a WordPress website. Best of all it can be automated to help save you time.
It is quite clear that ManageWP provides a host of benefits to each and every WordPress website when utilized properly. If you’re a web developer, or you look after a few of your own WordPress websites, you should definitely consider hosting them with ELITEWEB.Co Managed WordPress Hosting – this will ensure that you get all of the aforementioned premium add-ons completely free, helping you save time and money.
