Hosted or not hosted?

    I am trying to understand whether you are offering a search engine solution that is hosted on your servers, or is it hosted on our servers? And if on ours, do we need to install Solr and/or any other software?

    We provide a WordPress plugin only, it connects to Solr or Elasticsearch, which can be anywhere you like:
    self hosted (recommended), or hosted.

    So this requires setting up solr and the knowledge to do it.

    We have around 25-30 websites. We used Google Site Search on some and Relevanssi on others. Neither solutions are good, and we’re really looking for something much more robust. Many of our websites have hundreds of thousands of posts and custom data. But search engines are not our core expertise and I’m struggling to find a good solutions provider.

    One Solr can manage all your sites, each site will use one index (or one index per language if multi-language)

    Do you provide a multisite license?

    What do you mean?

    Well, your pricing is per site. Do you have a price for multiple websites? For example, if I want to buy a license for unlimited websites (developer license) or a price for 50 websites?

    How many sites do you look for?

    we currently have about 30 or so.

    But we always prefer to buy a license that gives us flexibility — because we also have a development iteration of each site, and we add or sign up new websites at about 5-6 per year.

    We have our own datacenter of dedicated servers, we provide a full development and hosting service to our websites. So we prefer to buy global licenses where possible.

    You will receive an offer by email.

    I need to inspect some more our capabilities for SOLR, but certainly your plugin can solve a lot of our problems in then connecting SOLR to our sites.
