Synextra Ltd, a provider of cloud hosting services to small and mid-market IT departments, is setting up a new division focused on web hosting, domains and virtual private servers (VPS) after acquiring The Hosting Heroes, a UK-based web hosting and cloud provider.
Following growth of more than 40% over the last 12 months, Synextra is aiming to become the ‘go to’ for organisations looking to host IT solutions in the cloud.
Chris Danks, who founded The Hosting Heroes in 2002 and has grown the business through the acquisitions of EZPZ Hosting, Yeti Host and Reyaltec, will stay on as Managing Director.
He said: “I’m excited that The Hosting Heroes is now a part of the Synextra Group and we’re looking forward to the future of the two businesses working alongside each other. The same excellent team at The Hosting Heroes will continue to support our customers.”
