Under the terms of the agreement, The Planet will serve as the exclusive infrastructure provider for Site5 as it consolidates its hosting platform. Site5 now becomes one of The Planet’s largest customers, with more than 250 servers located in its Houston and Dallas, Texas data centers. The integration is expected to be completed in mid-July.
Founded in 1999 and headquartered in San Ramon, California, Site5 provides hosting services to more than 25,000 customers worldwide. The company also hosts 188,000 domain names across its broad portfolio of shared and reseller hosting services.
“Site5’s endorsement of The Planet as its IT hosting provider illustrates the reliability of our data centers, which we believe is the best guarantee we can provide,” says Douglas J. Erwin, chairman and CEO for The Planet. “Our goal is to offer customers the perfect combination of products and services, as well as the best infrastructure, so they can focus on flawless business execution and rely on us for their IT operations. We appreciate the trust and confidence of marquis customers like Site5 who rely on The Planet.”
