Announced today, HostPapa Acquires Canadian Based Web Hosting Company Korax Inc.: “HostPapa Inc., a leading Canadian web hosting and cloud service provider for small and medium businesses (SMBs), continues its growth strategy with the recent acquisition of Canadian based web hosting company Korax Inc.” What’s interesting is not this one specific acquisition but that since September 2019, HostPapa has acquired independently or as part of portfolio acquisitions, none (9!) other hosting companies for a solid ten brands coming under the HostPapa umbrella. I wonder if/when WordPress plugin, theme, or SaaS will be acquired or developed internally.
