About Jetpack

What is Jetpack?

Jetpack is the ultimate toolkit for WordPress. It gives you everything you need to design, secure, and grow your site in one bundle.

With Jetpack, you can:

  • Fully customize your site with free themes, image tools, and rich content.
  • Increase your traffic through automatic social sharing, related content, and faster load times.
  • Get a safer, stronger site via secure logins and protection from brute force attacks.

All these core features are free. Advanced features like daily backups, spam protection, and SEO tools can be added with one of three simple and affordable plans.

Best of all, Jetpack’s features are provided and hosted by WordPress.com — so there’s never any extra strain on your server when you activate or use a new tool.

Who should install Jetpack?
Anyone who’s hosting their own WordPress-powered site and is looking for a single tool to help with their site design, traffic growth, and security.

If you’re hosted by WordPress.com, you already have Jetpack and all of its features built into your site.

What do I need to install Jetpack?
The requirements for installing and running Jetpack are listed here.

Jetpack installs just like any other plugin. Some hosting providers even auto-install Jetpack with WordPress, saving you the trouble.

Once you install Jetpack, you’ll be prompted to connect it to WordPress.com. If you don’t have an existing WordPress.com account, you’ll be asked to create one during the connection process.

For more detail on Jetpack’s system requirements, check out Getting Started with Jetpack.

Is Jetpack free?
Jetpack is and always will be free. Installation is free and doesn’t require you to enter any payment information.

Advanced Jetpack features like daily backups, premium themes, and SEO tools are included as part of one of three paid plans.

Is this related to Mozilla’s Jetpack project?
It is not: Mozilla Jetpack is a wonderful but entirely unrelated open source project run by Mozilla Labs.
