Guild Launch, the world’s leading guild hosting and management platform, has acquired WowStead guild hosting service. With this acquisition Guild Launch strengthens its position as the largest guild hosting service in the world. As part of the Curse Inc. network, WowStead was previously one of the largest guild hosting services specializing in the World of Warcraft gaming series.

“While this acquisition is great for Guild Launch for many reasons, I’m most excited about what our new members from WowStead have to look forward to here,” said Stephen Johnston, President and founder of Guild Launch. “With our outstanding level of service and multi-game support, we are certain they’ll experience the best hosting service the industry has to offer.”

The acquisition of WowStead has increased Guild Launch’s market share more than 60%, solidifying them as the largest and best hosting for guild, teams, clans and fans of gaming.

Guild Launch’s focus and mission has always been on the gaming community and throughout this acquisition that remains. To provide a seamless relocation of service, Guild Launch will automatically transfer all WowStead essential guild data into their database to allow users to retain history, images and other essential artifacts for their communities. In addition, Guild Launch is crediting user accounts with all existing paid credits remaining at WowStead. Lastly, former WowStead users will experience continuous service of their Ventrilo voice servers, a critical piece of technology for modern gamers.
