Activate Hosting Access

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.
