WP Curve was founded by Australia-based Dan Norris and Alex McClafferty to give WordPress customers a central point of call for a range of services, like security, design, SEO, traffic growth, conversion. The site also offers various membership tiers starting from $79 per month. It claims over 1,000 paying members and more than 44,000 jobs completed since June 2013.
The company will pick up WP Curve’s customer base, assets and few of its 39-person team along with this acquisition, the firm told Techcrunch.
WP Curve said in a blog post that the deal came together this summer when its team first met with GoDaddy and identified synergies. Following the acquisition, existing WP Curve customers will be transitioned over to GoDaddy in order to continue their WP Curve membership.
“With this acquisition, GoDaddy will provide best-in-class, 24×7 WordPress support, ranging from quick content changes, installing plugins, and security/back up. WP Curve aligns perfectly with our Pro strategy supporting the WordPress community and fills a critical gap between standard customer care and the fully custom WordPress developer that GoDaddy Pro or Professional Web Service offers,” said Kevin Pigman, SVP, Global Customer Care.
WP Curve claims that, since 2013, they have solved 105,000+ WordPress problems, earned coverage in major media (Fox News, Forbes and Lifehacker) and helped thousands of entrepreneurs with their WordPress sites.
