Planet Hippo On The Expansion Trail

Planet Hippo Internet, one of the UK’s fastest growing providers of website hosting and domain registration services, is on the expansion trail and actively seeking to acquire additional hosted services businesses to further extend its reach across the UK.  This strategic announcement follows the recent acquisition of Essex-based i4 Visual Media’s database of hosted service customers. 

According to Darren Lavender, Managing Director of Planet Hippo:  “We are keen to talk to web design service companies across the UK that want focus on their businesses on the provision of high quality web design solutions without the burden of also supporting a hosting service for clients.  Having experienced more than 100% growth in the number of users over the last year, Planet Hippo is making a significant ongoing investment in building new datacentres to maintain its position at the front-line of the developing Cloud-based hosting market and ensure that customers have a reliable and resilient hosting service for their web operations.”

Recognised for its commitment to delivering the highest level of customer service, Planet Hippo has consistently been voted by users, both individual and corporate, as one of the top UK web hosting companies on Web Hosting Directory, an online service that rates companies across the UK, USA, Canada and Australia.  Planet Hippo has achieved top five star ratings for speed, reliability, ease of use, service quality and email spam protection.

Planet Hippo provides reliable UK-based, super-fast web hosting services and an unrivalled level of friendly and personal customer support around the clock.  With web hosting packages starting from just £1 per month, the company has a flexible approach to providing tailored solutions to meet individual and corporate requirements.

“The market is seeing an increasing number of digital agencies outsourcing their web hosting divisions to state-of-the art, award-winning companies such as Planet Hippo,” continued Lavender.  “We will continue to invest in infrastructure and the delivery of unrivalled levels of customer support, freeing up these organisations to invest in growing the core areas of their own businesses.”

Planet Hippo Internet is part of The Network Selector Group, one of the first of a new generation of companies that can deliver reliable and best price voice, data and video services that take advantage of best tariffs and coverage to meet the geographical and usage requirements of customers.
