A few reasons…
First and foremost, we want to set our members up for success and give them the best tools and plugins possible.
And in this case, 7 premium plugins that optimize performance, security, SEO, and more, seemed like a no-brainer to package with our hosting.
Our suite of plugins is also something unique to WPMU DEV and not something a lot of other hosts offer.
Finally, the nature of our all-in-one WP platform means that many of our tools and plugins intertwine with one another.
For example, our premium plugins are fully-integrated into our site management tool, The Hub, which is also home to our dedicated hosting tab/interface.
We built it like this so users could easily manage and optimize sites, while also having direct access to our suite of technical hosting tools and features.
So overall it made sense to enable features that are already designed to work together, rather than hide them from hosting users.
