Dear Valued WestHost Client,

While its true that bigger is not always better, in this case it definitely is better for WestHost and for you.

You see, WestHost has just been acquired by the UK2 Group - an international Domain Name and Web Hosting company., it's flagship company, has a very similar history to WestHost. It was founded in 1998, and has developed a strong reputation and brand because of its focus on the customer. UK2 Group truly understands that if we don't take care of our customers, someone else will. Through this core belief, has grown to over one million domains registered and tens of thousands of happy clients on it's shared and dedicated servers.

But what does this acquisition mean for you? This and many other Frequently Asked Questions have been answered here.

However, In the short term you wont notice any changes. The WestHost office in Providence, Utah, will remain open and the same staff will be there, offering you the same REAL Support through personal service and technical expertise that youve come to expect from WestHost. I know that a local presence is important for you and the UK2 Group has no plans to change that.

Over time, however, you will begin to notice the kinds of improvements that you might expect from a larger hosting company with a solid financial base: UK2 Group has always kept itself at the forefront of Web hosting technology hardware and software. And UK2 Group has always worked to streamline its operations, which means faster, more responsive service for you.

You can also rely on us to keep you in the loop. Were going to do our best to keep you informed in advance of any service changes, interruptions or improvements that may affect you.

I guess you could say that in welcoming into the UK2 Group family, were also welcoming you to our family. I sincerely hope you enjoy the experience.

Yours for excellence in hosting

Ditlev Bredahl
CEO, UK2 Group
