Purchase a Plan

To purchase a plan for a site:

  1. Go to the Site Dashboard.

  2. For Sandbox sites, click Upgrade next to the site's name. Otherwise, click the current plan tag next to the site's name.

  3. Click Select for the plan you wish to purchase.

  4. Enter your billing information. Site ownership is designated to the user account entering billing information.

  5. Make sure the Plan details are correct.

  6. Verify the card shown in Billing details.

  7. Click the Submit button.

The Site Owner will receive an email confirmation of this change, a new invoice will be issued, and a prorated amount for the current billing cycle will be credited or charged to the associated card automatically.

Invoices and transaction history related to this change can be found in Account > Billing.

Enable Add-ons

You can enable the following add-ons:

  • Pantheon Search is a Solr-based system for indexing and searching site content. Pantheon provides Apache Solr v3.6 as a service for most plans including the Sandbox site plan.
  • Object Cache is a Redis-based open-source, networked, in-memory, key-value data store that can be used as a drop-in caching backend for your Drupal or WordPress website.

To enable or disable add-ons:

  1. Go to the Site Dashboard.

  2. Click Settings, and then click Add Ons. You will see all the available add-ons for your site.

  3. Click Add or Remove for each add-on you wish to enable or disable.

Add-ons and the Basic Plan

Pantheon Search and Object Cache are available to Sandbox plans for testing. Pantheon Search and Object Cache are available to Performance Small plans and higher for production sites. If either feature is enabled on your site, the feature will stop functioning and may cause errors if the site is moved to a Basic plan.
