WordPress Dashboard is a convenient tool to see all the important information about your WordPress website. It can be found by opening Websites Manage, search for WordPress Dashboard on the sidebar and click on it:


Once there, you will be presented with these sections:

  1. Dashboard - the main section of WordPress Dashboard, here you can see all the information about your website

  2. Staging - create a staging environment for your WordPress website (available on Business/Business WordPress plans or above)

  3. Plugins & Security - here you can manage your plugins, including checking their current versions, updating, and disabling them without access to WordPress Admin Dashboard

  4. Learn with us - here you will find useful video tutorials and Webinars from Hostinger Academy (this section might not be visible for some brands)


This page provides you with all the required information for your website with the most important configurations. It is also divided into sections, let’s go over them:


Here you can easily:

  • Force HTTPS - makes your website work with secure HTTPS protocol by adding forcing rules to the .htaccess file (does require an installed SSL certificate)

  • Turn on Maintenance mode - very useful when you are making changes to your website and don’t want your visitors to see your website temporarily. An alternative to this is using a maintenance plugin

  • Enable the LiteSpeed cache plugin (highly recommended)

  • Flush Cache - clears your server cache, extra useful when recent changes are not reflected on your website

  • WordPress updates - here you can manage your updates settings, they can be: only update minor versions, don’t update, or always update to the latest version

Speed & Security

Here you can see if SSL is active on your website, or enable it to improve your website security.

Site Installs

In this section, you can easily install another WordPress for your domains or subdomains:

Right side section

  • Edit Website

Here you can find a shortcut straight to /wp-admin, which will not require you to enter the password:

  • Database and Daily backup

Here you can find information on which database is used for the website and quickly open it in phpMyAdmin. You can also enable daily backups here if they are not already included in your hosting plan:

  • PHP version and WordPress version

This section provides you with the ability to change your PHP version and manually update WordPress if needed:


  • If you already have a recommended version set, you won't see an option to update it. It can be changed from the PHP Configuration page instead
