WordPress plugin BackWPup is joining group.one, along with two newly acquired plugins Adminimize and Search & Replace, adding to the group’s growing WordPress ecosystem.
group.one acquired the three WordPress plugins with a combined base of more than 1.1 million users from German WordPress agency Inpsyde GmbH, bolstering the group’s WordPress offering alongside flagship products WP Rocket, Imagify and Rank Math SEO.
Daniel Hagemeier, CEO of group.one, commented: “This acquisition underscores our commitment to building a powerful and unique WordPress ecosystem. Backup and recovery solutions are crucial to protect websites against data loss and we look forward to further developing BackWPup, along with Adminimize and Search & Replace. Together with WordPress hosting from WP.one and one.com, and our flagship products WP Rocket, Imagify and Rank Math SEO, WordPress users can now come to group.one to optimize, secure, maintain and promote their online presence.”

I believe group.one is now the best home for these products and their customers. Their dedication and commitment to WordPress is evident in their well-established WordPress ecosystem, and our customers are in great hands going forward.”
