Web edition restrictions
Something that should be made clear is that the web admin and web pro edition do come with a few restrictions, and the editions higher have the option to add features. With every edition, there are also a certain amount of domains you can have.
These are the following restrictions that CANNOT be changed with the web admin edition:
- Reseller management
- Subscription management
- Account management
- Custom view management
- WordPress Toolkit (better said, it SE only, so it’s very limited)
Web Pro edition only has 1 restriction, that being reseller management, the rest you can add on as optional.
