(The Hosting News) – TurnKey Internet, a leading New York‐based data center and web solutions provider, today announced its acquisition of web hosting provider HostPC. Located in Schenectady, New York, HostPC has a proven 12‐year track record of providing web hosting to small and medium‐sized businesses. This acquisition expands the TurnKey Internet web hosting brand.
“HostPC has been a leader in the web hosting industry, and remains the largest hosting provider offering DirectAdmin web hosting control panel,” said Joseph Mack, former CEO of HostPC. “HostPC has trusted its network and server infrastructure to TurnKey Internet for years. TurnKey Internet presented a perfect fit to take HostPC to the next level.”
HostPC customers will enjoy improved performance, software features and overall speed with upgrades completed in December 2010. HostPC customers now have access to new higher speed servers and premium features at no additional cost. These features include: R1soft continuous data protection backups, Softaculous auto installer, and a choice of cPanel or DirectAdmin web hosting control panels. TurnKey Internet’s premium support team will be handling 24 x 7 phone, live chat and ticket support for all of HostPC customers as of January 2nd, 2011.
“Mr. Mack has done a great job over the years, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring HostPC into the TurnKey Internet family,” said Adam Wills, President and CEO of TurnKey Internet. “HostPC web servers are already housed in our New York Datacenter, so clients will not need to make any changes going forward and will enjoy the new performance and features at no additional cost.”
HostPC customers will also have expanded access to new products such as Virtual Private Servers, Dedicated Servers, and software‐as‐a‐service business products. These SaaS solutions include: TurnKey Vault, TurnKey Newsletter, TurnKey Commerce, TurnKey Mail, TurnKey Website, TurnKey Monitoring and Voxwire web conferencing.
