Worcester based Namesco Ltd has today announced the acquisition of Register365.com, Irelands largest hosting provider, through its subsidiary Namesco Ireland Ltd adding 40,000 domains to its already impressive portfolio.
Register365 is the Shared Hosting and Domain Registration division of Hosting365, named the seventh fastest growing technology company in Ireland as part of the Deloitte Fast 50. With 35% market share, the purchase of Register365, is an important part of Namesco’s overall expansion plans.

Founded in 1996, Namesco Ltd is now the fourth largest provider in the UK of Domain Names and Shared Web Hosting Services and among the top 50 worldwide (source: Netcraft Company Analysis, January 2007). Namesco Ltd employs over 80 highly qualified professionals and now manages in excess of 400,000 Domain Names.

In 2007 Namesco Ltd were acquired by Italian Domain, Hosting and Social Networking company Dada, already a major player in Italy and Spain. The purchase of Register365 by Namesco Ltd is in line with Dada’s plans to further strengthen their position in the European market and continued international growth.

Jason Smith, Namesco's Operations Director, said “We are delighted to acquire Ireland’s largest Domain and Hosting provider as this further consolidates our position as one of the leading shared Hosting and Domain providers in the world. We look forward to continuing to provide the high levels of service Register365’s customers are accustomed to.”
None of Register365’s customers will be affected by the sale as Namesco Ltd will continue to deliver services from Ireland and support customers from its Head Office in Worcestershire, UK.
