Web Hosting Canada
(WHC) has acquired domain provider Sibername. WHC, which has headquarters in Montréal, Québec, Canada, was established in 2003. Accredited by the Canadian Internet Registry Authority (CIRA), the company offers a broad range of hosting-related products and services alongside domain name registration. These include traditional web hosting offerings and cloud and dedicated servers. The company’s services feature a site builder, and it offers WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla options as well as SEO and email marketing services. WHC’s acquisition of Sibername strengthens its domain registration capability.
Sibername has headquarters in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and besides domain name registration it focuses on providing cloud services. The company has been in operation since 2000. ICANN-accredited, it is a “leading provider of domain name services" and offers backordering services for domains with Canada’s ‘.CA’ suffix. The acquisition significantly increases WHC’s client list and extends the list of domains it manages. Sibername’s “domain-centric technology stack” and “.CA domain backordering expertise” made it a focus of WHC’s interest. Financial aspects of the deal have yet to be released, but it was reported that the two brands will initially operate independently of each other immediately after the acquisition.
“As COVID peaked and Canadians sought more of their goods and services from local businesses, it became obvious that local online shopping will continue to be a growing trend,” explained the founder and CEO of WHC, Emil Falcon. “It’s only natural that Canadian businesses would look to highly competitive Canadian service providers for fast, local infrastructure. WHC is proud to grow its domain and cloud services platform in Canada, for Canadians.”
“For 20 years, Sibername has thrived as Canada’s premier domain name service provider and has had a distinct, customer-centric approach,” added Sibername’s acting CEO, Ender Turkoglu. “Today, we are happy to announce that the business will be carried on by a new team that shares the same passion: the well-being of both its clients and staff.” Do you know of any other companies involved in acquisitions?
