Lansing-based Liquid Web, a $100 million managed hosting provider focused on web-reliant professional data, today announced the acquisition of Chicago-based managed web-hosting company WiredTree.
This acquisition follows the completed purchase of Rackspace’s Cloud Sites business unit late last year.
“With the addition of both WiredTree and Cloud Sites, we further our mission to empower web professionals worldwide to create content and commerce without worry,” says Jim Geiger, Liquid Web CEO.
“For web professionals whose websites fuel their businesses, we understand they need a partner to provide both a technological advantage and support, with a broad portfolio of products and a whatever-it-takes attitude. We’re purposefully building a smart, easy, flexible experience that does just that – on our fully owned infrastructure, which is backed by the most helpful humans in hosting.”
While most of the largest hosting and cloud providers focus on hosting either small websites or infrastructure services for very large enterprises, Geiger says Liquid Web focuses its managed hosting products and high-touch support on tech-savvy, web-reliant professionals. Liquid Web provides a reliable, secure partner for companies that rely heavily on the web to grow their businesses, and provides 100 percent power and uptime.
Geiger adds that WiredTree customers can expect better infrastructure, support, and access to Liquid Web’s 250 Red Hat, Linux, and Windows-certified technicians available by phone and online 24/7, without a change in pricing. Additionally, Liquid Web has created a specialized migration team to work directly with customers as their scheduled upgrades occur, to ensure a seamless transition.
Liquid Web serves over 30,000 clients in over 150 countries.
