Sound Off! How Has ManagedWP Weathered the Acquisition?
Back in September of 2016, GoDaddy acquired ManageWP . What was odd about the acquisition was the amount of backlash that was generated by ManageWP customers.
While most were happy for Vladimir Prelovac, founder of ManageWP, many customers worried about GoDaddy’s reputation, unsatisfactory service, and how such a great service would fit into GoDaddy without changing much in the process.
Nearly three years later, Prelovac is no longer with the company as he quietly left soon after the acquisition. I reached out on Twitter to ManageWP customers who stayed with the service through the transition and asked if they’re pleased with their service and if it has improved. Here are a few of the responses I received.
I think it’s gotten a bit better (to my surprise). I run into failures less often.

No difference, still fantastic

Haven’t really noticed any difference

Personally it’s been about the same for me. No features really added that make my job as a developer/site maintainer easier but none have been taken away either and pricing hasn’t increased for no reason.
I wish they would work on the web app more. It’s sluggish

If you use ManageWP and have been a customer since the acquisition, let us know in the comments about how the service has evolved. Have you noticed any significant changes?
