Having your own WordPress installation gives you full control over user accounts and user metadata. You can onboard and offboard users to your site as needed. If your organization uses Single Sign-on you can now expand that to your WordPress site.
On VIP Go, there’s less overhead to load since your environment runs your code, and your code only. All the code we run to optimize your site is publicly-available so you can install it in your local environment and get ahead of any surprises in production.
