MainWP is an alternative to our WordPress management software, iControlWP. There are many differences between the two platforms, the main one being that MainWP is “self-hosted” – that is, you install it on your servers and manage it from there – while iControlWP is a SaaS service that runs on our servers.


We built an integration between the Shield Security and MainWP.

How to get Shield’s extension for MainWP

Our approach has always been to automate as much of the heavy lifting as possible. This reduces your work (and ours).

You can easily integrate Shield Security to help you manage your site security from within MainWP. You don't need to install a separate extension for MainWP.

Just install Shield and turn-on Shield's built-in extension for MainWP server and client installations through Shield's Integrations module:
We’ve also limited the integration to ShieldPRO – it’ll not work on the free version.

Note: The Shield's extension for MainWP is available with Shield Pro only. To find out what the extra features for Shield Pro are, read the article here.
