Managed WordPress hosting provider WP Engine is making its Genesis Pro offering, a site-building solution, available for purchase via a subscription on StudioPress.com. This will include one year of free web hosting on WP Engine’s platform (limited time only). The subscription includes access to and support for Genesis and all the StudioPress-made themes.
Launched in May and previously only available to WP Engine customers, Genesis Pro is now available for purchase by the entire WordPress community on StudioPress.com. Genesis Pro helps users build “better sites faster” with WordPress. It includes a selection of professionally designed and pre-built content layouts (blocks) that would make it easy to create content and web pages with WordPress.
Genesis Pro also includes the ability for design and development teams to only make the best blocks and layouts available to content creators, so the “beautiful” websites customers create stay beautiful over time. These capabilities combined would be ideal for agencies that want to scale the innovation of their design and development teams and bring ideas to digital reality faster.
“We’re proud to have Genesis Pro as part of the WP Engine DXP and we’re thrilled to be able to offer Genesis Pro for everyone on StudioPress,” said Jason Cohen, Founder and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of WP Engine. “Being able to scale your design and development work is critical for teams building with WordPress and is a major focus for WP Engine with all of our Genesis products.”
Features and benefits of Genesis Pro on StudioPress would include:
- Access to & support for the Genesis Pro plugin, which creates “beautiful” websites quickly using professionally designed and pre-optimized WordPress blocks, page sections of blocks, and entire page layouts of blocks.
- Access to and support for Genesis and all 35 StudioPress-created themes.
- One year of free hosting for one website on WP Engine with no automatic billing for hosting beyond the first free year unless users choose themselves.
- A 60-day money-back guarantee.
- Provides the ability to restrict blocks, sections and layouts to specific users so you can arm your content creators with blocks optimized to help make sure the beautiful site you build stays beautiful.
- Ability to use Genesis, the premium themes and the Genesis Pro plugin on as many sites as you’d like and no matter where the site is hosted.
