What are Premium Connect Keys?

Learn What Premium Connect Keys Are

If you want to take your InMotion Central website to the next level, a Premium Connect Key is a great way to get access to many advanced features in a single bundle. When you purchase a Premium Connect Key, you receive access to a full suite of tools to help you build and manage your custom WordPress websites.

In this guide, we’ll go over what is included with Premium Connect Keys, and explain how they can help you build and manage your websites better. We’ll also show you how to copy and replace a connect key.

What is Included with Premium Connect Keys?

Many of the following addons have free versions available and you can upgrade them individually. A Premium Connect Key will give you access to all the upgraded versions at the same time.

Premium Connect Account

This includes Premium Support so you can reach out to the BoldGrid team for help directly via private email, instead of using their public forums.

Total Upkeep Premium

Along with all the standard backup and migration features of the Total Upkeep plugin, the Premium license also includes premium support and the ability to automatically upload backups remotely to a 3rd party service such as Amazon S3 and Google Drive. Here are some of the other features included with the Premium version of Total Upkeep:

  • Single file restorations
  • Review/restore different versions of files
  • Save backups of files modified during plugin updates
  • Review update history logs/data
  • Remote backup storage

Post and Page Builder Premium

The Post and Page Builder by BoldGrid is a block-based web builder for WordPress and offers an easy way to build responsive sites quickly. The professionally designed page elements also include content to help inspire you. But the Premium license adds the following features so you can customize your website further.

  • Premium plugin support
  • BoldGrid premium blocks
  • Sliders
  • Blog Widgets

Playground Environments

A Premium Connect Key includes 15 Playground Environments. You can think of these playground environments as sandboxes that contain completely separate websites. These “staging” sites are a great way to test your website changes in a safe environment, before modifying the live production site. This is also a great way for web developers to build multiple websites for clients that they can showcase before publishing live.

For example, you could replicate the same content in separate playground environments using different themes. This will help your customers compare sites so they can choose the one they prefer. You can then push the final site to a new server or an existing WordPress setup.
