1stPoint Adds Virtual Hosting to the Mix with Acquisition

1stPoint Communications has acquired virtual hosting assets from Web Hosting Group.

The acquisition includes the Web Site Source, Speedfox and Low Priced Domains brands, which offer virtual private servers, shared hosting and domain hosting services to small and medium-sized businesses as well as enterprise clients.

“We are very excited to add these services to our growing telecommunications portfolio,” said Erik Levitt, CEO of 1stPoint. “Our existing access to fiber and data center assets as well as our existing CLEC infrastructure, we are able to leverage our scale as well as provide new, innovative services to WSS’s clients.”

Randy Reineck, president of Web Hosting Group, added, “We are very pleased with the outcome of this transaction and believe that the combination of these assets with the existing 1stPoint infrastructure, customers will realize both short and long term benefits.”

1stPoint announced the deployment of its hosted SMSC platform last year, adding texting to its suite of hosted voice and SIP trunking, metro Ethernet and MPLS products.

Details of the transaction were not disclosed.
