WordPress Plugin Provider iThemes Acquires Membership Management Company

WordPressiThemes, a provider of WordPress SaaS and plugins for managing WordPress websites and a Liquid Web company, has acquired Restrict Content Pro – a provider of membership management. The purchase would better serve the needs of WordPress customers looking to expand into membership and course offerings for their websites. 

Founded by Pippin Williamson, Restrict Content Pro was designed to provide a complete membership management system. It is intended to give website administrators a “clean, simple” way to restrict content to paid subscribers and collect payments from paying customers.

Existing customers of Restrict Content Pro will not experience any service interruptions with the acquisition, says iThemes. The company has strategic plans to develop new features and improvements to Restrict Content Pro.
