Comparing InfiniteWP vs MainWPWhich management plugin is the better alternative for my blog? With more and more competing premium WordPress plugins it gets harder and harder to answer that question.

There are several other alternatives to InfiniteWP and MainWP on the market which I have compared in separate articles. Go to my main WordPress Management Software comparison to start your search.

Please note that this comparison only looks at the features on paper as reported by either plugin’s developers. It does not and can not tell you if or how well a certain feature will work for you. Because such a verdict would depend on too many variables, including your server setup and personal preference, I have decided to stick to the hard facts for this feature comparison between InfiniteWP and MainWP.

InfiniteWP And MainWP Interface Comparison

Even if many of the features compared above overlap between those competing products there is one very important difference: InfiniteWP as well as MainWP both provide a unique interface and dashboard from which you will manage all your WordPress blogs (pictured below). Since it is hard to rate the quality of such an interface objectively I recommend that you try both products yourself by signing up for the free trial offered by either service.

InfiniteWP vs MainWP Price Comparison

WPscoop indexes the exact prixing plans of all compared plugins. Please refer to the table below for a quick overview of the prices of InfiniteWP and MainWP.

To find the cheaper management plugin for your individual needs please go to my main comparison article. There you can search for the features you need and then see the exact price you would need to pay for InfiniteWP or MainWP (as well as other alternatives).

Price InfiniteWP MainWP
Minimum (1 Site) 0.00 USD 0.00 USD
Maximum (1 Site) 759.50 USD 319.90 USD
Minimum (10 Sites) 0.00 USD 0.00 USD
Maximum (10 Sites) 759.50 USD 319.90 USD

Explanations: The minimum price compared above is the lowest price a product is available for, e.g. the version with the least features. The maximum price listed is for a version of the product that includes all features. For plugins that charge per addon it factors in the cost of all available addons. For some products the price increases if you want to use it on more than 1 WordPress site – the listed price for 10 sites shows if that is the case.

Disclaimer: While we update this comparison regularly we can not guarantee the prices displayed above are still correct and take no responsibility if they changed.

  1. One important thing you have neglected to mention here (as far as I can see) – and that is, whilst infinite WP seems a bit more widely used – they hardly ever release any updates!

    Sure, there are some security related updates released by IWP for the core code (when someone discloses a security issue that is), but the plugins rarely seem to be updated.

    I have been with IWP for about 12 months and whilst the overall experience is good – I am very disappointed with the lack of feature updates or improvements for their addons (which are not cheap!)

    When I was originally considering the choice between MainWP and IWP, I signed up for both MainWP and IWP to try them both out. I eventually decided on IWP as I had some teething issues with MainWP.

    However, I still receive the Main WP update emails – probably one a week, notifying users of a new feature of some kind or of some bug fix update. This seems very impressive – as is the fact that all their addons now appear to be offered with lifetime licenses (as opposed to IWP that are not currently lifetime licenses and must be re-newed each year) – in other words, MainWP will (currently) cost you $399 once and then you’re set for all current and future releases – seems a good deal.

    IWP certainly is a very useful and relatively straight-forward application. But the biggest downfall is that there is a sever lack of communication from them on their Facebook page, or blog. Very few add-on updates seem to ever happen, and there does not appear to be a lifetime license on offer.

    I am seriously considering switching to Main WP just to give it a go!

  2. Ok, so I took the time and loaded both IWP and MainWP these last two days. IWP seems like the better solution for just the free version and no plugins for both. Haven’t decided which I’m going to choose as of yet but so far it looks like IWP. Upon install and loading 93 sites in each, iwp was ready to update my plugins and seems to work great. For the life of me, i can’t figure out how to update the sites yet in mainwp, even looked at the extensions to see if it was a special extension that was needed to do so. I think IWP for me, plus Yoast had good things to say about them and he knows his stuff so … lol I may use both as the free version of mainwp has some cool features that may come in handy, and well, all my sites are now loaded in both. I really like how IWP is easy to install and when you copy the data for the management side, it pastes the info in all three spots with one action. Hope this helps someone.
