Empowered by the greatest EU webhosters

Dutch web hosting provider Sitebytes B.V. (Sitebytes) has been acquired by RealHosting B.V. (RealHosting). RealHosting is a part of Total Webhosting Solutions (TWS).

Haarlem, [13 January 2020] – Sitebytes, founded in 1997, offers web hosting, domain name registration and virtual server services for small- and medium sized companies. Driven by the consolidation among Dutch web hosting providers, founder and director Gijsbert Rochat decided to look for a strong partner for Sitebytes.

Gijsbert: “I have been looking for the right permanent home for Sitebytes for some time. Our customers are used to excellent service and any potential partner should have a similar philosophy. Additionally, it is important to conduct business with a partner that delivers on their promise. Working together with RealHosting and TWS has been a pleasure, we completed the transaction from handshake to final closing within a few weeks.

This is RealHosting’s tenth acquisition in twelve years. With the support of TWS, RealHosting pursues an active buy and build strategy. Pim Effting, director of RealHosting: “In recent years, we have made a number of acquisitions to accelerate our growth. Sitebytes is well maintained, with happy and loyal customers and has a focus on a good customer experience. Sitebytes and RealHosting are a good fit, we understand each other.”

Matthieu van Amerongen, CEO TWS: ” As stated earlier, smaller web hosting companies fit very well within the companies of TWS and TWS will continue acquiring those in the coming years. Due to our scale, most of our companies can perform above market average. TWS unlocks cross-selling for example, which results in consistent revenue growth. In addition, investments in infrastructure and technology on a larger scale are more easily accessible, thus creating opportunities to save costs. By joining TWS smaller webhosting companies can benefit from those advantages and become a better and more successful company.”
