Never Forget Where Your WordPress Site is Hosted or the Domain is Registered

If you’re like me, you work on multiple websites. It’s difficult to remember where each site is registered and hosted. Yeah you can use whois to find out the registration and WhoIsHostingThis to find out the host, but those are extra steps.

One handy thing that I’ve learned is to update the footer in my WordPress Theme to show this in the admin screen in the footer.

Like below:

Here’s How to Update Your Footer in the WordPress Admin

To do this is very simple, all you need to do, is go to your functions.php and add the following code:

/*Update Admin Footer with Hosting and Registrar Info*/
function remove_footer_admin () {
echo 'Fueled by WordPress | Site is hosted and registered with SiteGround.';
add_filter('admin_footer_text', 'remove_footer_admin');
/*End Update Admin Footer with Hosting and Registrar Info*/

Of course you will update this to reflect what your registrar and host are, but it’s that simple. Now you can always just jump into the admin to see where the site you’re working on is hosted and registered.
