(The Hosting News) – Hosting Metro, Inc. announced today that it has reached an agreement with long-time Las Vegas web host company Bizwala Hosting. With the agreement in place, Hosting Metro will migrate their existing services and marketing to its own operations. In doing so, Hosting Metro will be able to offer expanded customer support through a dedicated 24/7 support line, as well as additional hosting features previously unavailable to Bizwala Hosting customers including expanded VPS options, Dedicated Servers and shared web hosting. As part of the transition, Hosting Metro is also expanding its colocation capabilities by expanding its Western U.S. operations and giving their customers the ability to colocate in Dallas or Las Vegas.
Tony Chu, CEO of Hosting Metro stated, “By acquiring Bizwala Hosting, we looked to increase our hosting options on the west coast and improve our dedicated server management capabilities by integrating the knowledge of Bizwala’s support team and technology into our already reliable infrastructure. As a hosting company who specializes in business-class web hosting and support, these added capabilities are something that our customers have been asking for. We want to give our customers every edge to compete in today’s market and with Bizwala onboard we believe that we have done just that.”
Jon Remund, former CEO of Bizwala Hosting has agreed to stay on with the new company and will continue to provide development and design services dedicated to the Hosting Metro community. “Hosting Metro is an outstanding company, and I am very confident that they will not only exceed the needs of Bizwala’s’ customers but surpass them by leveraging their outstanding support team, consultative services and delivery of an already solid infrastructure that is focused on being the industry’s most web host. From our very first meeting, I have been impressed by their customer-centric approach, and am confident that this acquisition is a win-win for their customers.”
