Webzilla’s extensive infrastructure, global network and partnership with vendors, tier-1 providers and traffic carriers will improve 8.to’s business processes and bring the company to new levels of efficiency.

Web hosting company Webzilla acquired 100% of Singaporean company 8 to Infinity (8.to), one of Asia’s largest hosting providers. The addition of 8 to Infinity to the hosting services of Webzilla and its parent company, XBT Holding, will substantially increase the company’s global offerings.

8 to Infinity has been working in Asia’s regional hosting market for more than 12 years. During this time, the company accumulated a sizeable customer base and extensive experience, and created a solid infrastructure.

Lim Boon Chuan, managing director of 8.to said, "Being part of the Webzilla Group will allow us to tap into some of the largest networks in the world, as well as enhance our services and products to serve Asian markets far more efficiently.”

According to Chuan, Webzilla’s extensive infrastructure, global network and partnership with vendors, tier-1 providers and traffic carriers will improve 8.to’s business processes and bring the company to new levels of efficiency. Webzilla analysts expect 100% growth annually for 8.to. In 2011, Webzilla traffic grew 150%. The company’s global organic revenue growth topped 96%.

In 2012, Webzilla plans to continue aggressive expansion with multiple acquisitions in Europe and Asia. Recently, the company bought Luxembourg’s largest hosting provider, Server.lu.

Rajesh Kumar Mishra, chief financial officer of XBT Holding LTD, said: “With the successful acquisition and integration of these two companies, we are exercising what we see as a clear opportunity for growth in India and Hong Kong. The Asian market has grown immensely in recent years, but the hosting business in Asian countries is not yet up to the standards of the U.S. and Europe, because it's not yet organized. Our goal is to use the Webzilla group’s global expertise to provide a similar level of organization and service to customers throughout Asia.”
