Dollie vs WP Ultimo

WP Ultimo is a WordPress multi-site management plugin that enables users to create and manage multiple websites from a centralized dashboard. See how Dollie compares to WP Ultimo.

Introduction

WP Ultimo is a premium WordPress plugin that allows its users to create a Website as a Service business to sell websites on WordPress multisite. Dollie also enables its users to create a Website as a Service business but it takes a different approach, and offers a much more comprehensive set of tools and services.

WaaS/SaaS Storefront

A website-as-a-service (WAAS) storefront is a platform or system that enables users to build and manage a marketplace for selling websites as a service. It provides tools and functionalities for creating, customizing, and deploying websites for clients. Users can offer pre-designed templates, themes, or blueprints, along with additional services such as domain registration, hosting, and ongoing website management. The WAAS storefront simplifies the process of launching and managing a website business, allowing users to monetize their services and offer scalable solutions to clients.

Building a Website as a Service (WAAS) storefront using WP Ultimo is a straightforward process. To begin, you need a WordPress site in multisite mode, where you install the WP Ultimo plugin and follow the setup wizard. WP Ultimo provides an intuitive experience without relying on third-party plugins, making it an accessible option for users with varying levels of WordPress expertise.

WP Ultimo requires WordPress multisite, which means all customer websites operate as a unified system. This setup simplifies management, particularly for smaller-scale operations, but it does have limitations.

Dollie

Dollie Hub is also a WordPress plugin but solves the problem very differently. To get started, you can request the deployment of a hub from your Control HQ dashboard. The setup wizard will then guide you in selecting complementary components from the WordPress ecosystem for integration, at the end of which you will have a WordPress site with the Dollie Hub plugin and configured integrations deployed and ready to be customized and presented to your audience. It should be noted that the hosting of this site is included in the Hub Builder plan, so there are no additional hosting charges for it.

Dollie Hub avoids using WordPress multisite, and instead takes a different approach by connecting to Dollie Private Cloud to deploy single-sites. Each site is isolated and given dedicated server resources, ensuring scalability, security, and customization options.
