With the latest WordPress releases always come new interesting features.

That’s what happened with WordPress 5.5 which introduced the wp_get_environment_type() function to retrieve a site’s current environment type and, in short, provide a more granular control for handling specific functionality between production, development, and staging sites.

As requested of hosting companies, we’re happy to share with you that Kinsta has added support for this new standardized approach.

Starting today, all Kinsta customers are able to take full advantage of the wp_get_environment_type() function and WP_ENVIRONMENT_TYPE constant when working on our staging and live environments.
