At ChemiCloud, we’re constantly looking for ways to add more value to our users. So today, we’re excited to announce a sweet new feature for our customers!
ChemiCloud now offers WordPress Toolkit on all Shared Hosting, WordPress Hosting, Reseller Hosting, and Managed VPS Hosting plans. All at no additional cost! Using WordPress Toolkit to manage your websites will save you time and money in the long run.
Please find below more details of the new WordPress Toolkit feature.
WordPress Toolkit is a feature-rich management interface in cPanel that allows you to install, configure, and manage your WordPress websites.
Thanks to WordPress Toolkit, installing and managing your WordPress websites just got a lot easier. Like you, we’re fans of user-friendly software, which shines through with numerous helpful features. In addition, it’s got a massive range of tools to keep you on top of your WordPress websites—from staging, cloning, syncing, and updating to copying and more.
These key features make some of the more time-consuming tasks much more accessible, something that beginners and advanced users alike will appreciate.
If you’ve ever had your website break because of an update, you’ll love the new Smart Update feature offered in the WordPress Toolkit. Before applying any updates to your website in production, it will create a clone of your existing website and use the updates to the clone.
From there, it’ll run some checks and show you the results. Then, if everything looks good, you can apply the updates to your live website.
WordPress is so widely used that it has become a big target for attacks, which is why many WordPress websites get compromised. This is why WordPress Toolkit comes with a security advisor that will scan for and resolve potential security flaws in your website.
Even a rollback feature allows you to revert any security-related changes/updates if they cause any issues.
Quickly find and install a plugin or theme on a WordPress instance or several instances simultaneously. Activate and deactivate plugins. Bulk remove plugins and themes that are not needed. Install plugins and theme sets on existing sites.
One click, one login. The WordPress Toolkit allows you to log in to the WordPress admin dashboard by clicking a single button.
Suppose you need to do some testing or want to make significant changes to your website. Then, using the WordPress Toolkit, you can easily clone your existing website onto a staging/development sub-domain (e.g., staging.my-awesome-website.com).
WordPress Toolkit also allows you to push database changes from your staging to the live website. You can even push specific tables of the database to the live website.
