Astutium Ltd ( ), an established leader in UK business and enterprise web hosting for over a decade, announced today the completed acquisition and integration of Simply Be Hosted – a UK Web Host specialising in providing cPanel based internet services to home and small business users.

“We are excited to have completed our latest takeover – Simply Be Hosted.

The SBH brand has a longstanding loyal customer base of UK based SOHO clients for website hosting and domain registration, with services spanning more than 10 years.

I’m extremely pleased to be able to welcome almost 1000 new clients to the Astutium family.”

enthuses Rob Golding, Head of M+A’s for Astutium.

After careful planning and testing, the company integrated the existing services directly onto the Astutium London Docklands network, so clients gained the benefits of fully redundant high-performance connectivity and the immediate availability of dual-stacked IPv4-IPv6 connectivity.

With so many custom configurations, unique setups for many WordPress and Joomla based sites and a highly unusual setup for email services, the integration involved a number of new challenges for Astutium, but was completed without downtime or disruption for the majority of SBH clients by the in-house support team.

“With several thousand domains registered important advantages the registrants now have is they are dealing directly with an ICANN Accredited Domain Registrar, so faster support for any domain issues as well as saving over 30% on renewal pricing.”

continued Rob.

Now completed, the integration grants the former SBH users access to ‘Unified’ – the online Astutium Client Portal – allowing for realtime management of all their web hosting accounts, domain registrations, virtual private servers (vps), dedicated servers, colocation and cloud-servers from one single location.

Every client now has the assurance that their domains, emails and websites are online all the time at a host with an 18 year proven track record of uptime and quality in-house support.

Additionally Astutium are one of the few ICANN accredited domain registrars and provide registration services for over 200 ccTLDs and over 500 gTLDs.
