Can I use the plugin on multiple sites?

Yes, you can use the plugin on multiple sites by either using WordPress multi-site or by purchasing more than one subscription. Let’s first explore what action is required for what setup.

Note: this information goes for both multi-site and multilingual site installs.

How many subscriptions you needs all depends on how many WordPress installs/domains you have. What does Yoast consider a domain?

Do you have 1 domain or subdomain and 1 WordPress install? You just need a subscription for one site, no matter how many subsites or languages you have!

If you have more than one domain name or multiple WordPress installs, you’ll need a subscription for the number of installs or domains you have. Starting from only 2 sites, you get a discount, automatically. See the discount chart here: Can I use the plugin on multiple sites?

Install TypeNetwork activate?Subscriptions
Standard1 per install
Multisite (subfolders)Yes1
Multisite (subfolders)No1 per active site
Multisite (subdomains)Yes1 per active site
Multisite (subdomains)No1 per active site
Multisite (domain mapping)1 per domain
Number of subscriptions needed per setup

If you need more than one subscription, we’ve got you covered. Starting from only 2 sites, you get a discount, automatically.

The subscriptions must be purchased at the same time to receive the multiple site discount.

Let’s put that in a convenient table for you:

2+ sites Save 5%
5+ sites Save 10%
10+ sites Save 15%
20+ sites Save 20%
30+ sites Save 25%
40+ sites Save 30%
50+ sites Save 35%
75+ sites Save 40%
100+ sites Save 45%
150+ sites Save 50%

So, if you are a heavy user of our plugin, or a successful online publisher or web agency with over 150 sites, you can save a whopping 50%, no discount code needed. It’ll automatically be added to your purchase.
