Accordingly to WP Curve, it met with GoDaddy in June 2016 to discuss the acquisition. WP Curve mentions in its blog post that its company “complements GoDaddy’s expanding WordPress offering including Managed WordPress and the recent ManageWP addition.”
Further, the WP Curve team will assimilate with GoDaddy to start this new venture. And if you are an existing WP Curve customer, you’ll still receive support from the same team. They will start by getting its existing customers familiar with GoDaddy systems. And after its current customers have been transitioned into GoDaddy’s new systems, they will gradually start to scale the service to support existing WordPress GoDaddy customers.
The transaction amount of the deal was not disclosed in the blog.
