WP Staging Pro is tested well and works on most of the available hosting providers and servers. If your hosting provider has not mentioned here this only means that we have not tested the plugin for the respective provider. Chances are good that it still works on your hosting system.

Incompatible Hosting Providers
WP Staging does not work with the following hosting providers due to server restrictions and/or due to less powerful systems.
There are only a few known hosting provider so far which are not compatible with WP Staging and which leads to a bad experience.
There are IONOS plans which run WordPress in a closed environment with the user/group 43:600. This does seem to be a preconfigured WordPress installation, probably made by a one-click installation script. These user permissions do not allow us to create a new folder in the root of the production site. Even their sFTP account does not allow us to create a custom folder within the root directory. It’s also not possible to simply clone and run the website clone from within the wp-content/uploads folder because of all files in there run with restricted user/group 133320:600 which is not allowed to execute any PHP files.
On crazydomains servers, the cloning and pushing process results in errors 400 on the file copy processing. This indicates that some I/O limits are hitten.
Until now we have not found any solution with crazydomains to fix that and hope they will try to make ours and other cloning and backup plugins compatible
The hosting provider aruba.it does not support staging sites created by WP Staging (at date 14th, June 2020) The staging site throws an error 500 and the WordPress debug log is ignored and not written on their systems which make debugging impossible for us.
Please get in contact with us if you are hosting provider company owner or responsible person for technical questions and you like to ensure that WP Staging works with your hosted sites.
If you are using another hosting provider and you can confirm that WP Staging runs on it please send us the name of it.
We are going to add it to that list.
