Hey everyone. We have some exciting news to share today. Through a distribution partnership with GoDaddy—in what felt like the blink of an eye—Beaver Builder Lite’s active installs surged from 90,000 to 100,000!
Last weekend, some news broke about a partnership with Beaver Builder and GoDaddy. It was a bit unexpected, but today we’re able to make a formal announcement. Here are all the details.
GoDaddy started including the free version of Beaver Builder in their Managed WordPress hosting product. GoDaddy users will have access to a few of our premium modules and a beautiful set of custom templates designed by Lift.
New GoDaddy users are greeted by an amazing onboarding process that walks them through setting up a WordPress website. They can pick a theme, a template, then jump right into editing their site with Beaver Builder. Check it out (our part starts around 1:40):
GoDaddy rolled this out to a subset of their users and they’re officially rolling it out to everyone today.
It’s really exciting!
To squash some rumors and misinformation, GoDaddy is not acquiring Beaver Builder. Nothing is changing in our day to day routine or roadmap. They’re simply offering their users the option to pre-install Beaver Builder Lite. It’s a win-win.
What it means for the community
With this partnership, we’re anticipating that we’ll see some new users and we’re hoping that some of these folks find their way to our community hubs.
There was some concern in comments over the weekend that our Facebook group might get overwhelmed. It’s possible that we’ll see an uptick in new users and questions, but I really believe this is going to be an opportunity for everyone to make some new connections. Having more people has always made our community stronger and more active and we don’t anticipate that changing.
We’d love to open up the conversation to questions or comments. It’s no secret that GoDaddy has many anti-fans out there. If possible, we’d love to keep the focus of the conversation on our partnership with them.
Thanks everyone. We’re thrilled to be sharing this milestone with you all!

Thanks Sasha-Shae! 🙂
New Beavers are welcome 😉
Woot. Yes, indeed! 🙂
Nice post Robby. We’re really excited about working with your team and making many more new users successful with WordPress
Thanks for the comment, Jeff. Working with you and the team over at GoDaddy is an experience we’ll never forget. We’re thrilled that BB+GD is finally live in the wild. Thanks for everything.
Congrats! Robby & Team!
Thanks, Ahmad! Much appreciated 🙂
Good expansion of your market! Congratulations!!
Is this an exclusive agreement with GoDaddy, or might we see other providers also including a modified version of BB lite?
What exactly are GoDaddy users being provided with other then the standard lite version modules found at the WordPress plugin repository?
Hey Gary! Thanks for the comment.
GoDaddy users get access to a few of our premium modules (I listed them above). They also get access to several custom templates that GoDaddy created and bundled using our theme author templates feature:
There is a GoDaddy plugin that adds these modifications and templates. Technically, they didn’t modify the lite version (which means it’s still possible to update/upgrade) and there is no exclusivity arrangement. 🙂
hearty congrats on this new partnership
Congrats guys, well deserved!
Congratulations! Beaver builder team!
As a theme developer, I must say that Beaver Builder has a very solid framework that allow third-party developers easy to add custom modules, it’s really really highly customizable, even if only use the lite version! No doubt that I will use Beaver Builder to instead of the other page builder plugins for my new themes!
Thanks for this amazing builder!
Right on, ThemeVan! Thanks for the kind words!
Congrats Beaver Builder Team. I recently got the marketing email from your team that made me more impressed.
I was wondering, I use Beaver Builder through GoDaddy. When I try to submit a ticket, BB does not recognize my login. is there a specific place I should send GoDaddy BB tickets?
Hi Taylor, you can shoot us a message on our contact page:
I have a new WP site with godaddy and they have installed page builder and booster. It was working well, but for the last 3/4 days it is not entering into edit mode or not creating any new page. Page builder is loading correctly but all buttons, modules are disabled. While clicking on buttons or body nothing happens, it is just a like view mode. Disabled all plugins and checked, but not solved. Can you help pls?
Hey Mathukutty, can you shoot us a message here:
We can try to help out there.
It also puts the GoDaddy on all it’s private-labelled reseller products:
Hey Randall! We appreciate you giving us a heads about this. We’re discussing solutions now. Sorry for the trouble.
Belated, Hearty Congratulations!
I am exhilarated that I am now counting myself in the BB family.
Wishing you all the very best for your future endeavours.
Hey Alok. Thanks so much and welcome! 🙂
My company has since left GoDaddy Hosting. The Beaver Builder Plugins associated with GoDaddy are due for updates but, We do not have the Beaver Builder Product Key and never received it. GoDaddy will not give it to us as well. Is there anything we can do?
Hi Myles, any associated plugins provided by GoDaddy will have to go through their support channel. If you like to purchase a Beaver Builder premium license, we can provide you with support from our team. Hope that helps.
Great info you shared, Thanks for share such type of precious info.
