Maintenance on main site or on separate domain

What is the best practice for using something like Main WP to maintain client websites? Do you keep it on your own company / portfolio site, or do you install it on a separate domain that doesn’t have a live site on it? Which do you prefer?

  1. I have no experience with MainWP, but if you use it to manage client websites I’d definitely install it on a seperate domain and add additional server-side authentication (like .htpasswd).

    Your company / portfolio site like has a number of other plugins, so that increases the security risk.
