Since 2012, Flywheel has been on an unstoppable campaign to help creatives do their best work. We’ve invested countless hours into improving the web design and development workflow, helping agencies scale, and solving the unique problems of creatives building WordPress sites for clients.
That story doesn’t end today; in fact, we’re doubling down on our commitment to building great products, improving the creative workflow, empowering agencies, and giving back to the communities we serve. We are incredibly excited to announce that as of this morning, Flywheel has joined the WP Engine family.
We are so full of gratitude for the tens of thousands of people who have thoughtfully chosen us to host and handle their WordPress sites. You inspire our work, shape our product roadmap, and have made Flywheel one of the most-loved brands in WordPress. We are leaping at the opportunity to continue to pursue our dreams alongside WP Engine’s exceptional levels of service, sophistication, resources, and talent.
There will be no immediate changes to the Flywheel platform, plans, brand, or experience! It’ll be business as usual over here, and we’re excited to spend the coming weeks and months collaborating with our new coworkers from WP Engine. We’ll be sure to keep you in the loop about any potential plans and share any highlights of the integration!Read FAQs
