Adding the DreamHost SEO Toolkit to a Domain

Overview

This article describes the different ways to add the SEO Toolkit to a website.

Changing the name of a WordPress site

Any SEO progress made is permanently reset if you change the domain name of a WordPress or DreamPress website.

For this reason, it is only recommended that you add the SEO Toolkit after your domain name is set correctly in its final version.

Eligibility

The SEO Toolkit is compatible with DreamPress and WordPress websites as well as any other fully-hosted website.

It cannot be used in the following cases:

  • Remixer websites
  • Websites hosted on DreamCompute
  • Websites hosted in subfolders (example.com/blog)
  • Temporary DreamHost domains (like .dreamhosters.com or .dream.press domains)

Billing options

You can choose between a monthly or yearly payment plan. View the following page for pricing information:
