Let’s see what WordPress Toolkit is, how it can help your business and the differences between the Lite and Deluxe versions.

What is WordPress Toolkit (WP Toolkit for short)?

WordPress Toolkit is a feature-rich management interface for cPanel/WHM that allows anyone to install, configure, and manage CMS-based websites with the most popular content management platform, WordPress. cPanel included WordPress Manager, a simple tool that made installation easy but did not have advanced features.

WordPress Toolkit Deluxe, with Cloning and Smart Updates tools, is now included as part of cPanel.

WordPress Toolkit, which Plesk developed initially, has superseded the old tool starting with WHM & cPanel version 92. WordPress Toolkit offers many advanced management options in two versions: WordPress Toolkit Lite (Free) and WordPress Toolkit Deluxe (Paid).

WordPress Toolkit Lite vs WordPress Toolkit Deluxe

WordPress Toolkit Lite allows several advanced tools not seen in the old WordPress Manager.

It allows, for example, the customisation of new installations, a single interface for the administration of all WordPress sites, the option to log in to the many other valuable features.


On top of that, WP Toolkit Deluxe gives essential additional tools that are particularly useful for developers or administrators who manage many sites.
