Endurance International Group (EIG) brands HostGator and BlueHost have launched Google Apps for Work for their small and medium-sized business customers in Mexico, the company announced Tuesday. The announcement follows the recent launch of Google Apps for Work in India by EIG brand BigRock.
Hosting customers in India and Mexico can access Google Apps including Drive, Calendar, Gmail, and Hangouts through the customer control panel, and manage their entire web presence from that one location.
“We are very excited to launch Google Apps in India and Mexico and to expand our suite of services for small businesses. This initiative establishes Bluehost and HostGator as true trendsetters in emerging markets,” said Mitch Haber, SVP Global Partnerships of Endurance. “We are also thrilled to extend our partnership with Google – by packaging our offerings together, we are able to provide small businesses across the globe with the tools that will help them succeed online.”
EIG appointed Karen Williams SVP of M&A integration this summer, shortly before it announced the acquisition of web hosts Verio and Site5.
The addition of Google Apps for Work in emerging markets boosts EIG’s play for a big share of the global web hosting market for SMBs.
