Combining WordPress Toolkit & WordPress

WordPress is one of the applications that benefit from being managed easily through WordPress Toolkit. Right from the start of your website projects, it can install, update, stage and clone your WordPress installations. 

Maintaining and developing a website should never be done in a live environment. A plugin update, an unclosed bit of PHP, an old file version, uploaded can disrupt your website and cause unnecessary downtime. 

If a visitor experiences downtime or it affects them during their visit, their confidence in your brand can take a knock. This usually means that the person will close the tab and seek another website and service.

Utilising a staging site through WordPress Toolkit you can update and test new plugins, try new designs and layouts and fix any bugs or issues that arise.
