Leading web hosting organization UK-2 Group, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of the Domain, Shared Hosting and Reseller customers of US hosting provider Stargate Holdings Corp. The acquisition follows the recent decision by Stargate to focus exclusively on Data Center, Colocation and Dedicated Hosting services, and heralds the expansion of UK-2 Group into the American marketplace.
"The acquisition of the domain, shared hosting and reseller customers from Stargate is a big step for us" commented UK-2 Group CEO Ditlev Bredahl.
