Consolidation of Polish hosting market continues

H88 (the company created through the merger of several large hosting companies) acquired Active24.pl and strengthened its position as the second largest company in the domain market in Poland. The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Active24.pl is part of an international group, offering domain registration and hosting services. It is present on the Polish market since 2002.

Yet another acquisition proves an increasing consolidation of the hosting market in Poland. Earlier in 2016, home.pl (the largest hosting company in Poland) was bought by United Internet, the owner of 1and1 brand. Poznan-based company, H88, already has in its portfolio brands such as Domeny.pl, Hekko.pl, Ogicom, Superhost.pl. In October last year, European fund 3TS invested €5.5m in the company (those funds are spent on the development of new products and services and acquisitions). There are already over 345,000 Polish internet domains on the DNS servers of all H88 companies.
