Our favourite features
These key features make some of the more time-consuming tasks much easier, which is definitely something that beginners and advanced users alike, will appreciate.
If you’ve ever had your website break because of an update, you’ll love the new Smart Update feature offered in the toolkit. Before applying any updates to your live website, it will create a clone of your existing website and apply the updates to the clone. From there it’ll run some checks and show you the results. If everything looks good, you can apply the updates to your live website.
WordPress is so widely used it has become a big target for hackers, which is why tens of thousands of WordPress websites get compromised every year. Which is why cPanel’s new toolkit comes with a security advisor, that will scan for and resolve potential security flaws in your website for you.
There is even a rollback feature, which allows you to revert any security-related changes/updates if they cause any issues.

A comprehensive toolkit
There are a lot of plugins and tools available for WordPress that do some of the things that cPanel’s new toolkit does. However, there some reasons as to why the new WordPress Toolkit is superior to those tools, such as:
They can only do one or a few of the tasks that cPanel’s toolkit can do, meaning that you need multiple plugins/tools to do various tasks.
Most other third-party tools (MainWP, ManageWP, InfiniteWP, etc.) require you to login to a separate interface/website to manage your website. cPanel’s toolkit is integrated into the cPanel interface, so you only need to login to one place.
Other premium WordPress management plugins and tools are significantly more expensive than cPanel’s WordPress Toolkit addon.
