London, United Kingdom – (The Hosting News) – October 17, 2007 – British web hosting company, UK-2 Group, has acquired domain, shared hosting and reseller clients, from web hosting solutions firm, Stargate Holdings Corp.
The acquisition follows the recent decision by Stargate to focus exclusively on Data Center, Colocation and Dedicated Hosting services, and heralds the expansion of UK-2 Group into the American marketplace.
Ditlev Bredahl, CEO of UK-2 Group remarked, ”The acquisition of the domain, shared hosting and reseller customers from Stargate is a big step for us. Not only does it significantly grow our business and market share, but expansion into the US hosting market allows us to become a truly global organization, and will play a key role in UK-2 Group’s ongoing growth strategy.”
UK-2 Group has been a significant player in the British and European hosting markets for many years, and recently underwent a large restructure, making important organizational changes in readiness for customer growth plans and challenging the bigger hosting brands.
UK-2 Group will integrate the Stargate customers into two new brands â€“ US2.net and Resell.biz. US2.net will be an expert and innovative hosting option for both individuals and small businesses, and the shared and dedicated hosting packages will offer outstanding value in the highly competitive marketplace. Resell.biz will support and grow the reseller customer base by offering a range of attractive products and services, tailored for customization and selling on to end users. As part of the UK-2 Group, US2.net and Resell.biz customers will benefit from long standing hosting industry experience and knowledge.

New customers will get this as standard and existing customers previously on the 2000GB option have already been automatically upgraded.
