GoDaddy launched a new WordPress Plugin Partner Program to help with the discovery and use of plugins in the WordPress community.
The company announced thew news at WordCamp U.S. on Friday.
“With 40,000+ plugins available, it can be difficult for developers to have their plugin rise above the noise. GoDaddy’s program boosts visibility of the best WordPress plugins, giving authors a chance to drive downloads, and making it easier for small businesses and web developers to find a plugin that meets their needs,” a spokesperson for GoDaddy tells WebProNews.
When plugin authors become GoDaddy-verified partners, they get access to exclusive, on-demand support and a direct line of communication to the company’s customer service. They also get platform-tuning assistance to allow the plugins to maintain a “high quality user experience” on GoDaddy’s platform.
Verified partners also get referrals from integrated GoDaddy placements, which the company says will help boost downloads and activity.
Partners will receive a badge to display on their website.
