Previously there was integration with GitHub Actions and Templates, i.e. creating a new website from a template and pulling the latest code from GitHub. InstaWP now also supports webhooks, so you can also integrate Bitbucket.

You can now also integrate Git into your existing websites without having to create a new website every time there is a push.

What’s More?

In other news, InstaWP now lets you purchase individual features as add-ons, filter options for the sites table, and change the suffix domain on demand. You can now also FTP access your sites via username and password, set a WordPress default site language and add a username/password protection to an entire site.
