⚙️ How to use InfiniteWP
To use InfiniteWP, you need to download their installer plugin. Once you have the ZIP file, upload and install it on the site you want to use as your hub. When you activate the plugin, it’ll ask you where you want to install the InfiniteWP admin panel:

💵 Price and details
The InfiniteWP plugin itself is free, and you can use it to connect all of the websites you manage. However, without a license, you’re limited to accessing update management, backup creation, and one-click login features. Here’s a quick break down of the premium licenses:
- Starter: Up to 10 sites for $147 a year
- Developer: Up to 20 sites for $247 a year
- Freelancer: Up to 50 sites for $347 a year
- Agency: Unlimited sites for $447 a year
Although the premium version of InfiniteWP offers similar functionality to MainWP, the latter is a considerably cheaper option with a better interface.
