UK hosting provider Daily Internet announced this week that it has transferred all customers from NameHOG to its Daily group services. Daily acquired NameHOG in January as part of an assertive growth strategy. NameHOG offered domains names, hosting packages, dedicated servers and SSL certificates, primarily to SME customers, and had operated for over ten years.
Daily services overlap those NameHOG offered, though they offer a broader range of services including reseller and VPS packages. Daily’s domain services actually start at a lower price than NameHOG’s, although their hosting packages do not. Daily expects newly transitioned customers will benefit from its larger support team and greater resources, which will ensure a smooth transition for customers.
“‘With the final integration now complete, we welcome NameHOG’s loyal customers,” said Alison Curry-Taylor, Operations Director for Daily Internet’sSME hosting Division.“They’re in safe hands and can get on with the important tasks of running their businesses. We pride ourselves on offering the best possible products backed by market-leading customer service and we look forward to extending these benefits to our newest clients.”
In early 2013 Daily began offering dedicated servers, and was listed to the LSE’s AIM market. Daily also acquired IaaS provider Netplan in late 2013, with the final price expected to be around $5.8 million.
The UK hosting market also became a little less crowded this week when Node4 announced it had acquired cloud infrastructure provider LETN. Local providers, rather than international giants, are generally seen as the main competition cloud providers in the EU.
