(WEB HOST INDUSTRY REVIEW)
Technology media publisher iNET Interactive (www.inetinteractive.com
), owner of the Webhostingtalk.com (www.webhostingtalk.com
) discussion forum and other Web properties, announced last week that it has acquired HostVoice (www.hostvoice.com
), a Web site for customers seeking competitive Web hosting price quotations from qualified companies. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Through HostVoice, hosting companies receive screened and qualified leads from customer seeking Web hosting services. Customers fill out a brief form indicating their hosting requirements and leads are sent to Web hosting companies who have subscribed to receive them. A customer will receive up to eight different quotes from different hosting providers.
HostVoice was established in September of 2003 by MordComm, Inc. The site processes leads in six categories - Unix, Windows, reseller Hosting, e-commerce hosting, dedicated servers and colocation.
"We are extremely excited about adding HostVoice to our ever-expanding portfolio of sites," says Ryan Elledge, president of iNET Interactive. "We have numerous sites about Web hosting, but we did not have one that really targeted connecting those seeking hosting to those who provide it. We look for great things to come from HostVoice."
Elledge said no significant changes to the site are planned.
