HostPapa, Inc., a leading Canadian internet company that specializes in web hosting solutions and services for small to medium businesses (SMBs), has announced the acquisition of the web hosting brand Santa Barbara Web Hosting, previously owned by Add2Net, Inc, alongside other supporting brands.
Founded in 1997 as part of the Add2Net product portfolio, Santa Barbara Web Hosting positioned itself as a viable alternative for affordable web hosting and online solutions with its customer base largely based in the United States. Other assets included in the acquisition are PacificHost, TheVine.net, Lunarpages, and eSolutions.net.
Finalizing this key acquisition strengthens HostPapa’s ability to bring affordable, powerful business solutions to its customers in the United States and beyond. It represents a step forward in fulfilling a vision of combining companies with shared goals and maximizing their potential to the benefit of all stakeholders.
Commenting on the acquisition, HostPapa CEO, Jamie Opalchuk said, “We’re excited about the possibilities that this acquisition brings to HostPapa, including strengthening our position in the United States.”
Chad Riddle, Add2Net’s CEO said, “Add2Net was in on the ground floor of the web hosting industry in 1999. We’ve evolved and learned with this dynamic industry and have built profound expertise on how to provide top-quality service as well as the ability to offer market-leading products to our clientele. We are pleased to sell these brands to a company that will continue to provide the highest quality service for the unique needs of this segment of the industry.”
HostPapa will prioritize upgrading all the newly acquired customers’ infrastructure along with enhancing their current support coverage and potential portfolio of services.
