Introducing Essential: Affordable Elasticsearch for WordPress


We’ve been offering for almost two years, and along the way we’ve learned quite a bit about connecting Elasticsearch and WordPress, what works and what doesn’t, and how our customers use the plugin and service we’ve built. Now we’re using that knowledge to introduce a new, lower-cost plan, making our fast and flexible search and query engine more accessible.

When we first launched, we wanted to ensure that it followed 10up’s strong values of craftsmanship, quality, and service. We targeted the enterprise WordPress community that we support, but the $299/month price point kept our service out of reach for lean startups and growing WooCommerce stores.

Today we’ve changed all that.

Based on our experience tuning Elasticsearch for WordPress search and complex queries, we’re proud to announce that our service now starts at a much lower price point–only $79/month! This new plan is perfect for growing startups looking to engage with their emerging customer base, or WooCommerce shops seeking better sales conversions.

Our Essential subscription gives you an endpoint for a single production site, as well as staging and development endpoints to simplify testing. This subscription also includes all of the features we offer in our other plans—full SSL encryption, uptime SLA, endpoint security, and built-in secure auto-suggest functionality.

If you’re curious if Essential is right for your site, try it out with a 14-day free trial. Enjoy simple, secure, and trusted ElasticPress hosting at the price that’s best for your company.
