London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 04, 2008 -- Leading web hosting organization UK-2 Group, Ltd. (www.uk2group.com), announced today that it has completed the acquisition of US hosting provider midPhase Services Inc.'s Shared and Virtual Private Server businesses. This acquisition continues the expansion plans of UK-2 Group and closely follows the recent acquisition of clients from US host Stargate.
"We are extremely happy to announce our acquisition of midPhase" commented UK-2 Group CEO Ditlev Bredahl. "It is the next step towards achieving our ambitious growth strategy and the continued international expansion of UK-2 Group. This acquisition now makes UK-2 Group one of the largest international hosting companies, which will allow us to have a hugely positive impact on the marketplace."
UK-2 Group has been a significant player in the British and European hosting markets for many years, and recently underwent a large restructure, making important organizational changes in readiness for customer growth plans and challenging the bigger hosting brands. UK-2 is one of the largest domain registrars in the UK having registered over 1 million domain names.
"Zak and I are both very happy to announce the handover of our shared and VPS customers to UK-2. We're very happy to have been able to reach a deal which results in minimal disruption to our customers," said Dan Ushman, Co-founder and President of midPhase Services, Inc.
UK-2 Group intends to continue operation of midPhase's various brands, including: midPhase.com, ANHosting.com and Autica.com, due to its successful approach and market leadership to date. UK2 will not integrate midPhase into any existing UK-2 Group brand. This means there will be no impact on existing midPhase customers in terms of products, services, prices and support. UK-2 does not plan to migrate servers and has chosen to collocate the existing midPhase servers with SingleHop, Inc., a company owned and operated by Zak Boca and Dan Ushman.
