Using WordPress Overview on hPanel to manage your WordPress website

Updated over a week ago

The WordPress Overview on hPanel is a convenient tool to manage all the important information about your website. You can find it by opening Websites Dashboard, searching for WordPress Overview on the sidebar, and clicking on it.

The WordPress Overview option in the website's hosting panel

NOTE: If you've installed WordPress manually and don’t see these buttons, you can enable WordPress Overview manually.

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

  3. AI Troubleshooter – automated troubleshooting to make sure your website is always in prime condition.

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

  5. Learn – here, you will find useful video tutorials and Webinars from Hostinger Academy (this section might not be visible for some brands).


    As well as these options:

  6. A button to update the website information, such as name and database, so the latest changes are reflected on the Overview

  7. If you have WordPress installed on one or more subdomains, a drop-down list will appear from which you will be able to select which WordPress website you want to manage

This page provides you with all the required information for your website with the most important configurations.

Here, you can easily do the following:

  • Force HTTPS – makes your website work with secure HTTPS protocol by adding forcing rules to the .htaccess file (requires an 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).

  • Enable Object cache if you have a Web Business plan or greater.

  • Flush Cache – clears your server cache. It is useful when recent changes are not reflected on your website.

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