HostPapa, headquartered in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, has acquired yet another web hosting brand, Mezzohost. Founded in 2009 in Canada, Vancouver, Mezzohost positioned itself as a viable alternative for affordable web hosting and online solutions for small and medium businesses with its customer base predominantly based in Canada.
HostPapa identified Mezzohost as a compelling investment opportunity based on its direct experience providing niche web hosting services to the Canadian market. The acquisition would further strengthen HostPapa’s brand of managed hosting services in the Canadian market. It follows the completed purchases of Lunarpages, PacificHost, and Santa Barbara from late last year.
With this acquisition, HostPapa now serves over 150,000 customers world-wide with domains, web hosting, security, e-mail, and cloud services.
Consolidation Web Hosting Market
“Through the acquisition of Mezzohost, we continue our ongoing consolidation in the web hosting market, specifically in Canada,” said Jamie Opalchuk, CEO of HostPapa. “This decision is completely aligned with our continuous development of reliable, secure, and scalable hosting solutions, backed by the latest technology and in-house expert customer support team. We’re excited to welcome each Mezzohost customer to the HostPapa family and we’d like to let them know that we’ll go above and beyond to help their businesses succeed.”
For Mezzohost’s customers, the acquisition would mean access to better infrastructure, a wide portfolio of fully featured web hosting packages, and powered by renewable green energy. In order to ensure a seamless and hassle-free transition, HostPapa will prioritize upgrading all the newly acquired customers’ infrastructure, along with enhancing their current support coverage and potential portfolio of services.
