With the announcement on Friday of the sale of ManageWP to GoDaddy (and confirmed today) I have received a fair amount of questions about it and I have also seen MainWP brought up in numerous comments, so I thought it was best to take a moment and address the acquisition and how a sale of a SaaS (Software as a Service) management solution such as ManageWP differs from the sale of a open source stand alone solution such as MainWP. Let me start by saying; I am proud of what Vladimir Prelovac has accomplished with ManageWP and for paving the way for plugins like MainWP. I believe he and his team are really going to do their best to continue to provide a great experience for ManageWP users while being part of GoDaddy. Privacy, it’s important! The problem, as I see it, is the information GoDaddy is obtaining through the sale. While I’m not privy to the details of the sale, I have to assume GoDaddy is not only getting user information, but they are also getting the information on every one of the sites that a user has on ManageWP, information the users entrusted with ManageWP, not GoDaddy. One way to assume all the information on the sites connected to ManageWP are being tracked
