HUB and Staging sites

is it recommended to add staging sites to HUB?

I have site on and staging site on

Staging site is created via plugin WP Time Capsule ( ) which copies all files and all databases (and changes links, paths to root etc.).

Will HUB and your plugins like Defender, Hummingbird, SmartCrawl, Snapshot, Smush… work correctly on this staging site?

    Hi Jiri,

    Hope you’re doing good today.

    Of course HUB and our plugins will work correctly on staging site.

    You should connect your staging site to HUB because some of the Pro options for the plugins you mentioned won’t be available without HUB connection. If those options don’t work then staging site won’t be an exact copy of live site.

    If you have any further query, please let us know.

    Best regards,
