Hostinger Tools


Hostinger Tools is an all-in-one plugin designed to streamline essential tasks for WordPress site administrators. This plugin offers a range of features to help you manage your site’s information, maintenance mode, security, and redirects effectively.


Basic Info

  • Displays the current WordPress version with automatic update checks.
  • Shows the current PHP version with automatic update checks.

Maintenance Mode

  • Easily enable or disable maintenance mode for your site.
  • Provide a URL to bypass maintenance mode for selected users.


  • Enable or disable XML-RPC requests to enhance your site’s security.


  • Force all URLs to use HTTPS for secure browsing.
  • Force all URLs to use WWW to ensure consistency in site access.

Hostinger Tools is the new version of the previous Hostinger plugin, offering an updated and enhanced experience.
The Onboarding assistant and the Learning section previously included in this plugin were moved to the separate plugin Hostinger Easy Onboarding.



Minimum Requirements

  • PHP 8.0 or greater is recommended
  • MySQL 5.6 or greater is recommended

Automatic installation

If you set up a WordPress site on Hostinger’s managed WordPress hosting account, this plugin will be automatically installed.

Alternatively, you can use the automatic installation from the dashboard, and WordPress will handle the file transfer – you won’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of the Hostinger plugin, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu, and click Add New.

In the search field, type Hostinger, then click Search Plugins. Once you find us, you can view details about it, such as the point release, rating, and description. Most importantly, of course, you can install it by clicking Install Now, and WordPress will take it from there.

Manual installation

The manual installation method requires downloading the Hostinger plugin and uploading it to your web server via your favorite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.


Automatic updates should work smoothly, but we still recommend you back up your site.


How Do I Install the Plugin

If you set up a WordPress site on Hostinger’s managed WordPress hosting account, this plugin will be automatically installed.

Alternatively, you can install the plugin directly from your WordPress dashboard. Just go to Plugins > Add New Plugins, search for “Hostinger Tools” in the plugin repository, click Install, and then Activate.

When enabling this, other plugin CSS breaks. An example of this is the really popular ACF plugin. When enabling the plugins from Hostinger (Especially, the AI plugin) a lot of ACF styling breaks.

Hostinger decided to install multiple plugins without my permission. I do not recommend the plugin and question a hosting company that forces you to opt-out rather than providing a clean Wordpress install and presenting an opt-in proposition letting us decide for ourselves. Every time I spin up a Wordpress site I have to uninstall multiple Hostinger plugins and the artifacts remain long after.@Hostinger, Do not bother responding, I will probably never check back here again.
