This week, VentraIP, the Australia-based domain name registrar announced the acquisition of Web Access, a former auDA accredited Registrar and web hosting provider. The terms of the deals have not been disclosed. Web Access is based in Queensland and claims to have more than 3,000 customers and more than 8,000 active orders.
Angelo Giuffrida, CEO, VentraIP Australia said that the acquisition would set the tone for what he hoped would be another stellar year for the company.
We are proud to welcome Web Access customers to the VentraIP Australia family, and we hope they continue to enjoy the great service and technical support offered by our local team.
As with every prior acquisition to date, we will realize immediate cost savings by transferring the existing customers to our DELL cloud infrastructure and removing most of the existing operational costs from the business.
Web Access says that the company will cease trading as a separate business unit after 19 years of operation and all existing customers and services will be migrated to VentraIP Australia and the VIPControl customer management interface. Mr. Giuffrida also hinted that unlike previous acquisitions this would not be the end of the Web Access brand.
Harry Hoholis, Managing Director, Web Access said:
When we made the decision to step away as an auDA Registrar, VentraIP Australia provided a smooth transition taking over the Registrar mantle through their wholesale division Synergy Wholesale, and an astounding service since.
I would like to sincerely thank all our Web Access clients, many who have been with us for the entire 19 year journey, and wish you all the best for the future.
