WPEngine Is All Set To Increase The Price
Announcing WP Engine Digital Experience Platform with New Plans
On March 1st, we will be officially launching the first WordPress Digital Experience Platform (DXP) plans with features that deliver our customers Creative Agility, Enterprise Performance, Actionable Intelligence, Ecosystem Integration, and Legendary Service.
What does this mean for our customers?
There is no plan or pricing change for current customers on March 1st. They will have a grace period from March 1, 2018 to their monthly renewal date in September, 2018, or their first annual billing anniversary after September 1, 2018.
During this grace period customers will not see any plan or pricing change. At the end of the grace period, they will move over to the closest equivalent plan and pricing—and customers will get to carry over the number of installs included in their current plans and features.
Additionally, customers will have access to even more environments than they do on their current plans today.
Here’s an overlook to the pricing before and after :-
Effective starting September 1, 2018:
Existing customer plans will be converted to a new plan that is the closest equivalent of the existing plan, at the new plan prices.
When converted to a new plan, existing customers will keep the number of installs included in their existing plans at no cost.
Existing customers will keep the features included in their existing plan (e.g. Content Performance and GeoTarget for clients on a Business plan).
The best thing I see is the free CDN which previously costed $19/month.
At last they did it, people at WPEngine have included a free migration process with every plan. The price hike is acceptable keeping these points in mind. If you can’t agree with this, you may want to look at these WordPress hosting alternatives.
