Minimum Requirements

  • PHP 7.4 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.


Here’s how to use the Hostinger Plugin’s Asset Builder to compile your assets:

Installation: Start by navigating to your project’s root directory in your command line interface. Run npm install to install all the necessary project dependencies.

Configuration: Make sure your project’s “scripts” section in your package.json file includes the necessary commands for asset compilation. As shown in your example, these commands define how assets are processed during development and production phases.

Development Mode: Execute “npm run dev” or “npm run development” to initiate the development environment. This command will use Node.js and Webpack to build your assets while displaying progress.

Production Mode: When you’re ready to launch your project, run “npm run prod” or “npm run production” to build assets optimized for production, again utilizing Node.js and Webpack.

Watching for Changes: During development, you can use “npm run watch” to continuously monitor your assets and rebuild them when changes are detected. This command is invaluable for real-time asset management.


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 Onboarding Plugin” in the plugin repository, click Install, and then Activate.

Is There a Cost Associated With Using the Hostinger Onboarding Plugin?

The Hostinger Onboarding Plugin is available for free. However, the AI Assistant features for content creation are distributed with a different plugin exclusive to our Business and Cloud hosting plans customers.

Are There Any Specific Hosting Requirements for This Plugin?

The Hostinger Onboarding Plugin is designed to work seamlessly on any hosting platform, ensuring wide compatibility and ease of use. However, the plugin requires these minimum requirements:
* PHP 7.4 or greater
* MySQL 5.6 or greater

Can I Access Educational Resources Outside This Plugin?

Yes, the educational resources you can find in this plugin are available on our Hostinger Academy YouTube channel and Hostinger Tutorials website.

The 15 th of april of 2024 we could not access the backoffice of Hostinger and my site was down. I haf to wait 4 hours before i could access the back office again. “The problem was due to this plugin” ( this is what they told me in the chat). Very disapointed. I don’t even know what this plug in is for. I did’nt ask for it. Too bad that we can’t put 0 star!

This plugin would be good for people who have never used WordPress before, but a pain in the butt for everyone else! If you delete this plugin, then in your “hPanel” (Hostinger’s poor attempt at making a cPanel, but getting a tiny bit better.) you get this BOLD message stating that it NEEDS to be installed. It doesn’t do anything once you initially setup a website! It also adds a menu and site menu item, making your dashboard even more crowded. This should be an option when installing WP, and should be able to delete it without ever seeing any mention of it again! (*Their support is nothing but someone copying and pasting FAQ entries. It takes 10x the amount of time to do anything in hPanel as it does in cPanel.)
