Page.ly, a managed WordPress hosting company, announced the acquisition of competing service BlogDroid in an all cash deal* with the goal to diversify their customer profile.
During the transition, Page.ly will manage the BlogDroid domain name and move customers from the existing BlogDroid infrastructure to their hosting platform. BlogDroid customers will immediately benefit from Page.ly’s enterprise grade security PressARMOR™ and responsive customer service.
Co-Founder and CEO of Page.ly Joshua Strebel states, “BlogDroid is a great acquisition to swell our ranks of happy customers. They will find a good home on our expanding service. Managed WordPress is what we do, we have future plans for the BlogDroid domain in that regard.”
BlogDroid, based in Connecticut, was an attractive acquisition for Page.ly due to their rapid growth, upscale brand and “customer-first” approach.
Co-founder of BlogDroid Karen Jackie looks forward to the transition, “We are extremely excited to see our valued WordPress customers move to such a mature and well-respected service like Page.ly. We want to make sure the transition is as easy as possible and will be assisting the Page.ly team in making sure every customer has a seamless moving experience.”
Sally Strebel, Co-founder of Page.ly shares what it means to the Arizona ecosystem, “Page.ly started the managed WordPress hosting industry and now we are the first to make an acquisition in the space. This proves that Arizona does not need to be envious of Silicon Valley. We just need to further support the local business community and trust in the awesomeness that is already here.”
