How to Register Porto

Once Porto is installed, the next thing to do is to register your purchase using purchase code.

Without registering Porto, it is disabled to auto-update theme and plugins, install demos and import studio blocks.

To register Porto, just navigate Porto -> Dashboard or Porto -> Setup Wizard -> Activate.

According to the Envato licensing terms and conditions you need a license for only 1 website. Porto allows 1 live site licensing and 1 staging site licensing for testing purchase per purchase code. So you can setup a staging site without any additional license. But it is required that the staging site is not publicly accessible and only accessible after admin login. This can be achieved by using a coming soon plugin or .htaccess restriction .

Following is the list of domain patterns of staging sites. We will register the domains which match the one of these patterns as the staging sites.
