25th July 2005 - RapidSwitch Ltd buys Infinity-Hosting.net Ltd
RapidSwitch Ltd has acquired Infinity-Hosting.net Ltd, the dedicated server and colocation hosting business to bolster its position within the market as a leader in B2B and enterprise hosting.
Infinity Hosting is a web hosting business providing dedicated servers, colocation, and IP transit services to business clients in the UK. Infinity Hosting has established an excellent reputation for effective content delivery, and hosting network-critical services.
This acquisition further strengthens RapidSwitch's position as the number one choice for hosting media-rich and network-intensive content and applications in the UK, and follows strong recent growth by RapidSwitch which saw turnover and client numbers increase exponentially in the last 12 months.
"We are at the start of a period of industry consolidation, which will continue throughout 2005-2006," said Ed Butler, MD, RapidSwitch. "This is the first of a number of acquisitions RapidSwitch will make this year. They will enable us to continue our impressive growth and establish us as one of the core B2B hosting companies in the UK. We are delighted to welcome Infinity Hosting's clients on board, and welcome their feedback."
