BURLINGTON, ON, February 3, 2020 – HostPapa, Inc., a leading Canadian internet company that specializes in providing web hosting solutions and services for small and medium businesses (SMBs), announces the acquisition of the web hosting brand Mezzohost. With this acquisition, HostPapa now serves over 150,000 customers world-wide with domains, web hosting, security, e-mail, and cloud services.

Founded in 2009 in Canada, Vancouver, Mezzohost positioned itself as a viable alternative for affordable web hosting and online solutions for small and medium businesses with its customer base predominantly based in Canada.

HostPapa identified Mezzohost as a compelling investment opportunity based on its direct experience providing niche web hosting services to the Canadian market. The acquisition further strengthens HostPapa’s brand of managed hosting services in the Canadian market and follows the completed purchases of Lunarpages, PacificHost, and Santa Barbara from late last year.

Through the acquisition of Mezzohost, we continue our ongoing consolidation in the hosting market, specifically in Canada. This decision is completely aligned with our continuous development of reliable, secure, and scalable hosting solutions, backed by the latest technology and in-house expert customer support team,” said HostPapa CEO, Jamie Opalchuk. “We’re excited to welcome each Mezzohost customer to the HostPapa family and we’d like to let them know that we’ll go above and beyond to help their businesses succeed”, he added.

For Mezzohost’s customers, the acquisition means access to better infrastructure, a wide portfolio of fully-featured hosting packages, backed by top customer service, available 24/7 by phone, email or chat, and powered by renewable green energy. In order to ensure a seamless and hassle-free transition, HostPapa will prioritize upgrading all the newly acquired customers' infrastructure, along with enhancing their current support coverage and potential portfolio of services.
