BlogDroid, based out of East Berlin, Connecticut, started in 2012. Page.ly is based in Chandler, Arizona and was started in 2009 by husband and wife team Joshua and Sally Strebel.
So what happens to BlogDroid customers? According to Page.ly, “Customers will move from the existing BlogDroid infrastructure to the Page.ly Managed WordPress hosting platform. Page.ly will manage the blogdroid.com domain name, and the BlogDroid team will provide assistance during the transition process.”
Says Page.ly CEO Joshua Strebel, “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.com domain in that regard.”
According to BlogDroid co-founder Karen Jackie, the BlogDroid team will be assisting the Page.ly team “in making sure every customer has a seamless moving experience.”
