Just culled from the invisible headlines two acquisitions involving the hosting industry. First, and just announced today, we have Liquid Web acquiring ServerSide (a Windows CMS host). From the press release:

“The acquisition of ServerSide supports Liquid Web’s mission to power leading content management platforms. With ServerSide, we are excited about building upon the relationships ServerSide had with Sitefinity, Kentico, and Sitecore and their ecosystem partners”, said Joe Oesterling, CTO.

Second, yesterday, Joomla and WordPress host CloudAccess acquires Miller Media, an SEO and WordPress agency. It’s interesting to see how hosts are adding value to their traditional business.

“Combining the expertise and assets from each company presents significant opportunities for growth,” CloudAccess CEO Jonathan Gafill said in a statement.

There has been much investment action over the year. Look for more throughout 2020.
