I am thrilled to announce that GoDaddy, the web hosting company that is hyper-focused on the future of WordPress, has acquired ThemeBeans — as well as my other projects, CoBlocks and Block Gallery!

I’m joining the super talented WordPress team at GoDaddy, focusing on the next era of WordPress themes and blocks. Having met the team personally, I am confident GoDaddy has thoughtfully assembled the right people to innovate the WordPress experience for millions of folks around the world.

Read the full announcement at GoDaddy to learn more about the acquisition.

What does this mean for ThemeBeans?

As of today, the premium WordPress themes in our catalog will no longer be available for sale. Instead, I’ll be focusing on the future of WordPress by continuing to push the boundaries of what’s possible with new block editor and CoBlocks with GoDaddy.

In the spirit of open source, the entire ThemeBeans WordPress theme catalog is now freely available on GitHub. However, theme support and remote updates are only available for current customers with active licenses.

What does this mean for our customers?

First and foremost, current customers will absolutely continue to receive friendly support and remote updates throughout the duration of your current license. Nothing changes there. We stand by our commitment to helping you get your best foot forward online.

GoDaddy is also offering current ThemeBeans customers exclusive discounts to their premier Managed WordPress Hosting platform. I’ll be in touch shortly with details on that front.

Onwards

I’m so incredibly proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish at ThemeBeans and the impact we’ve had creating themes focused on design and usability. I am incredibly thankful for every single person who has used any of my themes or plugins. Your feedback and evangelism has, and will continue to, inspire me every day.

This is an exciting time for me, and I owe it to all of you. Again, thank you for your continued support and being part of my journey.

Joining GoDaddy is a dream opportunity to make a very real impact and help a lot of folks build incredible WordPress websites. And with GoDaddy’s resources, you’ll start to see even more incredible blocks and tools that level-up the page building experience in a very big way.

I couldn’t be more excited to roll up my sleeves and start this next chapter. Onwards!
