TOS provides managed hosting, application services as well as portal projects, and Host Europe said the deal will help bring enterprise hosting solutions to SMBs, while offering highly technical solutions to its customers.
“We are excited to welcome TOS to our Group portfolio,” Thomas Vollrath, CEO of Host Europe said in a statement. “Combining TOS’ significant high-end hosting expertise with our cloud and mass hosting capabilities will mean we are better placed than ever to deliver everything any organization needs to be successful online.”
Host Europe manages more than five million registered domains and offers cloud and virtualization solutions, as well as SaaS. It owns other prominent hosting brands including 123.reg.co.uk, Heart Internet and WebFusion. In April, Host Europe launched a new brand, BrandFortress, to offer domain management services for SMBs.
Telefonica Deutschland is handing over TOS to focus on the development of its core mobile and Internet business.
“We are delighted that Host Europe Group is acquiring TOS. We believe Host Europe Group is the ideal owner for the business to further extend the already successful hosting business of TOS,” Rene Schuster, CEO at Telefonica Deutschland said. “We would like to thank all employees for their dedicated work which has contributed greatly to the growth of TOS and we wish them great success in becoming part of the Host Europe Group.”
