(The Hosting News) – Host Europe, an operator of hosting brands, on Monday announced its acquisition of hosting provider domainfactory.
Host Europe’s current hosting brands include 123-reg, Domainbox.com, Webfusion and others.
“This is our second acquisition in recent months and is consistent with our strategy of consolidating a highly fragmented hosting market in Europe. Under the leadership of the two founders – Sara Marburg and Jochen Tuchbreiter – domainfactory has enjoyed good growth and developed a strong reputation for high quality service and customer care which makes it a perfect fit with Host Europe Group. We intend to invest to ensure that the Host Europe Group can deliver all the broad range of online services to meet the needs of a modern-day business,” stated Host Europe Group CEO Thomas Vollrath via a press release.
Domainfactory currently accounts for 1.1 million hosted domains.
