VentraIP has announced the acquisition of Perth-based web hosting, managed WordPress and domain name provider Netorigin.
Founded in 2010, Netorigin boasts more than 4000 customers and 25,000 active services, all of which will be transferred to one of VentraIP’s brands. The companies didn’t disclose the acquisition price, but did say it was in the seven-figure range.
The Netorigin brand will be retired once the acquisition is completed. Netorigin managing director Blake Burton said he was selling the business to focus on other ventures, namely managed IT and cloud services provider Attained Group.
“VentraIP is one of the last remaining Australian owned and operated web hosts and I’m confident that our customers are in the best possible hands,” said Burton.
“Netorigin has been a massive part of my life for almost nine years, having started the business from scratch when I was 18 years old, but the timing feels right.”
VentraIP chief executive Angelo Giuffrida added: “Being able to close this deal with so many international players acquiring local companies is a definite win for us, but more importantly, it’s a big win for Netorigin customers who will now become part of the VentraIP family and continue to enjoy local support, but also gain access to new products and services to help grow their online businesses.”
VentraIP has acquired every web hosting business it can get its hands on lately, with four buys in 2018 alone. In March this year the company upgraded its core infrastructure with Extreme Networks switches to accommodate its rapid expansion.
