DesktopServer Shutting Down After 12 Years

It’s sad to hear that ServerPress is closing its doors and DesktopServer has reached its end. Marc Benzakein and Gregg Franklin were active WordPress community members for years and I appreciated their work.

Shared in an email to their customers:

β€œWe’re a small company that has remained independent of large hosting providers and their influential budgets; this choice had initial market share benefits but longer-term financial constraints.”

β€œThe WordPress development tool landscape has grown and diversified greatly. This has diluted DesktopServer’s overall market share. The time, effort, and costs to bring in new users to DesktopServer’s workflow would be too much overhead for ServerPress to be sustainable.”
