Does Google own Weebly?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 5:38 am

Google is an internet giant with a massive search engine and expansive online presence. In addition to its own properties, Google also owns a number of other companies, including Weebly.

Weebly is a web development platform that lets users create their own websites. The platform was acquired by Google in 2016, and at the time of the acquisition, Weebly reported that it had more than 150 million users.

PRO TIP: Weebly is a website builder and hosting company. Google does not own Weebly.

Many Weebly users are likely familiar with the platform because it’s used by many large corporations, such as Amazon, Google, and Walmart. However, there is no evidence that Google actually owns Weebly outright.

Rather, Google simply purchased the platform and retains ownership of it.
