Web host Liquid Web, LLC
(Liquid Web) has acquired fellow web hosting company WiredTree. With headquarters in Lansing, Michigan, United States, Liquid Web caters to around 30,000 customers in some 150 countries with products and services that include Linux or Windows web hosting, cloud storage, managed dedicated server hosting, and VPS cloud servers. The acquisition underscores Liquid Web’s aggressive expansion strategy and comes on the heels of its purchase of Rackspace’s cloud sites business in 2016. Financial aspects of the deal have not been released.
WiredTree, which has headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, United States, was established in 2006. “An industry-leading provider of managed hosting solutions to small and medium businesses worldwide”, the company offers a wide range of services including Virtual Private Servers (VPS), dedicated servers, and hybrid servers. The acquisition enhances Liquid Web’s ability to provide services to “tech-savvy, web-reliant professionals” and those who “rely heavily on the web and cloud to grow their businesses or to power multiple websites and applications”. WiredTree’s customers will benefit from a better infrastructure with no change in pricing or support.
“With the addition of both WiredTree and Cloud Sites, we further our mission to empower web professionals worldwide to create content and commerce without worry,” explained Jim Geiger, the CEO of Liquid Web. “For web professionals whose websites fuel their businesses, we understand they need a partner to provide both a technological advantage and support, with a broad portfolio of products and a whatever-it-takes attitude. We’re purposefully building a smart, easy, flexible experience that does just that – on our fully owned infrastructure, which is backed by the most helpful humans in hosting.” Do you know of any other companies involved in acquisitions?
