In your website’s Hosting Configuration, access your website’s database, SFTP credentials, and more advanced settings. This guide will give an overview of the options here.
This feature is available on sites with the WordPress.com Business or Commerce plan. If your site has one of our legacy plans, it is available on the Pro plan.
To visit the Hosting Configuration area:
- Visit your site’s dashboard.
- On the left side, hover your mouse over Settings near the bottom.
- Select Hosting Configuration.
Guides for each setting found here are listed below.
If you’re just getting started with your website, you may need to activate the hosting features to gain full access to the hosting configuration options. Hosting access is activated automatically when you install the site’s first plugin, upload a third-party theme, or activate backups.
If not yet activated, you will find a notice that says, “Please activate the hosting access to begin using these features.” Click the Activate button to unlock your hosting access. This is a one-time action you will never need to do again for your site.
