Using Frontend Product Editor on Localhost or Development site

Estimated reading: 1 minute

We provide support for staging and local development websites. To ensure compatibility, your site URL should match one of the following patterns.

TLDs that are considered as dev or staging:

  • *.dev
  • * (DesktopServer)
  • *.test
  • *.local
  • *.staging
  • *.example
  • *.invalid
  • * (GoDaddy)
  • * (Cloudways)
  • * (WPSandbox)
  • * (tunneling)

Subdomains that are considered as dev or staging:

  • local.*
  • dev.*
  • test.*
  • stage.*
  • staging.*
  • stagingN.* (SiteGround; N is an unsigned int)
  • * (WP Engine)
  • dev-* (Pantheon)
  • test-* (Pantheon)
  • staging-* (Kinsta)
  • staging-* (Kinsta)
  • *' (Pressable)

Moreover, if your domain includes “localhost” (with any port), it will also be recognized as a localhost domain.

In case you wish to use a license on a dev site that doesn’t meet the criteria listed above, you have the option to deactivate the license from the Account page in your WP Admin dashboard. Once deactivated, you can then reuse the license for another site.
