BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bluehost, an Endurance International company and a leading provider of cloud-based solutions for small and medium-sized businesses, today announced the integration of the all-new MOJO Marketplace. MOJO Marketplace is an innovative destination where users can buy the latest website templates, plugins, logos and scripts from some of the most popular open-source applications, like WordPress, Joomla, PrestaShop, Concrete 5 and Drupal.
MOJO Marketplace makes it easy for users to improve the appearance and functionality of their websites, shopping carts, blogs and other aspects of their web presence. It will make open-source applications more accessible to less-experienced users. Now getting a new logo, building your brand, upgrading your site template or reconfiguring your site extensions is just one mouse click away.
MOJO’s unique structure offers benefits for both buyers and sellers. Buyers will be able to browse curated products built by professional designers and developers, then purchase and install anything from a full website template to an eCommerce platform with just one click. Sellers, on the other hand, will be able to release their products into a network of millions of potential users.
According to Dan Handy, CEO of Bluehost, "We are excited about the launch of the new MOJO Marketplace for our Bluehost customers. It can be difficult to find and install important software, plugins, and themes that you need for your website. MOJO Marketplace helps you find what you need and install it on your website with one simple click.”
“We recognize that small business owners really need this— as the backbone of our economy, they have little time to spend on technology. MOJO Marketplace integration provides an opportunity to help support small businesses with some pretty amazing stuff that can help attract, drive and then capitalize on web traffic,” said MOJO founder JR Farr.
Bluehost, along with Endurance sister companies HostGator and iPage, plans to expand the MOJO Marketplace to provide users with a wide range of products and services, from education to tools to professional services, creating a one-stop-shop for small business users. In fact, Endurance expects integration with iPage to begin next week, with HostGator following shortly thereafter.
As Endurance International Group CEO, Hari Ravichandran explains, “As we move to the world of cloud-based computing, integrated environments will become more important to our subscribers. We think the MOJO Marketplace will transform the way small business owners leverage their web presence. Small business owners will now be able to make changes in website themes and functionality to accommodate seasonality in a snap.”
