Today, we’re excited to announce a brand new feature that you’ll find on your Flywheel dashboard — introducing Flywheel Add-Ons!

In a Nutshell

Add-Ons make it really easy for you to enable extra features on your site. Today, you’ll be able to enable SSL, CDN, and multisite integration on your site, and we’ll be adding more features soon. To use Add-Ons, navigate over “Add-Ons” under the “Advanced” tab in your Flywheel dashboard.

The Nitty-Gritty

Right now, you can enable CDN, SSL and multisite integration on the Add-Ons page, and we’ll be adding more features soon! Each add-on is priced at $10 per month*, and will be added to your billing cycle accordingly.

*(Don’t worry, any customers who have purchased any of these features from us in the past will not see changes to their billing.)

CDN

A CDN (Content Delivery Network) is a collection of servers all over the world that hold a copy of your site’s files. When a user visits your site, they are served the files closest to them. This means your site is even faster!

SSL

SSL Certificates are small data files that bind a key to an organization’s details. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock in the nav bar to let you know that a site’s connections are secure. SSL is required for things like running an online store if you handle credit card transactions.

Network Install

Network install allows you to manage multiple WordPress installs from one WordPress admin. The sites share a database and resources.
