(The Hosting News) – Webzilla Group, a global webhosting company held by privately owned XBT Holding Ltd., acquired Luxembourg’s largest hosting provider Server.lu as a new subsidiary. Server.lu will join a growing list of Internet infrastructure companies in XBT Holding’s portfolio.
Server.lu is a leading Internet backbone and colocation provider specializing in dedicated servers, colocation and web hosting. It is located in nearly the exact center of Europe in Steinsel, Luxembourg. The company was founded in 2003. From its beginning, Server.lu has provided hosting solutions to fit the needs and budgets of a wide variety of customers. The company has built a broad customer base, gained a great deal of experience, and created a solid infrastructure — all qualities that appealed to Webzilla.
“Server.lu is the perfect fit for us. They offer Luxembourg’s best parallel computing technology and are thought leaders in the hosting business,” said Konstantin Bezruchenko, co-founder and CTO of Webzilla Group. “We are united by a common culture that includes a passion for innovating and driving a positive consumer experience.”
For years, hosting in Luxembourg with Server.lu has been of great interest to financial companies, forex brokers, and game developers. Webzilla serves many clients from these sectors, and is looking forward to improving its offering to these companies.
Webzilla CFO Rajesh Kumar Mishra echoed Bezruchenko’s enthusiasm for the new acquisition. “We welcome Server.lu to the Webzilla family. We believe their expertise in vendor solutions will greatly contribute toward expanding our product offerings for the benefit of our customers,” he said. “Webzilla always has worked to offer its customers global solutions, and this acquisition strengthens the company’s position in Europe.”
Webzilla plans to acquire other companies in Asia to expand its global services to new regions.
