Read on to find out which plugins you can now get 100% free with our hosting and why we decided to package them this way.

Skip ahead:

Why include free plugins with our hosting?

A few reasons…

First and foremost, we want to set our members up for success and give them the best tools and plugins possible.

And in this case, 7 premium plugins that optimize performance, security, SEO, and more, seemed like a no-brainer to package with our hosting.

Our suite of plugins is also something unique to WPMU DEV and not something a lot of other hosts offer.

Finally, the nature of our all-in-one WP platform means that many of our tools and plugins intertwine with one another.

For example, our premium plugins are fully-integrated into our site management tool, The Hub, which is also home to our dedicated hosting tab/interface.

We built it like this so users could easily manage and optimize sites, while also having direct access to our suite of technical hosting tools and features.

So overall it made sense to enable features that are already designed to work together, rather than hide them from hosting users.

*Drum roll* here are the 7 pro plugins you can now get 100% free with our hosting:

1.Smush Pro

Optimize unlimited images on your sites with our most popular WordPress plugin – sitting pretty with over 1.3 million active installs.
