Add Your Comments

HostDime is continuing its international expansion with locations in South America, Australia and South Africa. The expansions will start this summer and continue through 2015.

HostDime recently opened its new corporate office in Research Park in Orlando, which will add up to 50 jobs in the area this year.

According to a blog post by HostDime on Tuesday, its initial expansion will be in Argentina, which is near completion. It is on target to open in summer 2014. It will offer a full portfolio of hosting services including business, reseller, VPS, dedicated servers, and colocation.

HostDime already has an international presence, with a data center in Mexico that opened last year. The company also provides hosting services in Europe through the UK and the Netherlands, in India, Brazil, Colombia and Hong Kong.

Following Argentina, HostDime will expand to Australia in late 2014. Services offered in Australia will include VPS, dedicated servers, and colocation.

HostDime Peru will open in 2014 as well, and offer a full lineup of hosting services.

Latin America has been an area of interest for web hosts including GoDaddy, which expanded its localized services and customer support to Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela at the beginning of 2014.

In 2015, HostDime will open a location in South Africa. A recent report by IDC showed that outsourced, managed, and hosted services in South Africa are expected to grow by 10.9 percent from 2013 to $2.8 billion in 2014. If this growth pattern continues, HostDime will be in a good place to meet demand for hosting services. HostDime has not yet disclosed which hosting options will be available from this location.
