Acquisitions

Deciding to sell is a big decision, but we believe that as the gaining company we can make that decision a little easier.​

We have the experience and track record to make sure your clients are in safe hands.

That’s because to us, it’s not just a question of numbers – taking over an active client base is about finding the right fit. We want to provide an excellent service for your clients, not just acquire as many clients as possible. Quality trumps quantity.

Criteria:

We’ll consider purchasing the client base of any UK based shared hosting company. However, we don’t purchase physical assets as we’ll migrate all clients to our eco-friendly London data centre powered entirely by green energy, and place them on our own equipment. We are experts at migrating sites, and we guarantee a smooth, painless migration with minimal disruption of service.

 

Whilst not everyone may meet our requirements, we welcome all potential acquisitions to contact us for advice as we are more than happy to work with control panels such as DirectAdmin & Plesk as well as alternative billing systems such as Blesta.

Your company must meet all of the following:
  • Company is UK based
  • At least 95% of the client base are UK residents
  • Company has been established for at least 2 years
  • Company is growing or is showing stable turnover
  • Uses cPanel/WHM
  • WHMCS Billing System
  •  
We prefer companies that have the following:
    • Over 50 cPanel hosting accounts
    • Up to date WHMCS billing system
    • Nominet TAG Holder for .uk domains
    • Majority of domains use your nameservers

Timeline

Sign NDA

If you meet the minimum requirements we'll send you a digitally-signable NDA so we can talk confidently about your specifics.

Valuation

As part of this process we'll look at the state of your company and get to know a little bit more about you, your clients and your ethos. If it's a fit we'll negotiate a price that works for both parties.

Exchange Contracts

We'll agree a sale date and schedule of events. This lets us line up the resources required to ensure a smooth transition, such as new hardware and plan the handover.

Migration: What To Expect

We’ll work with you to notify your clients about the upcoming change of ownership and provide a timeline. This information will include where our support resources are located as well as our contact email and phone number. In a vast majority of cases, we will be able to migrate clients over without downtime, out of peak hours.
