Crucial acquires AVS Networks


Web hosting provider Crucial has acquired domain hosting and registration provider AVS Networks.

There's an obvious connection between web hosting and domain registration: if you have a web site, you need a domain name.

So it comes as no surprise that Crucial has chosen to acquire domain registration and hosting business AVS Networks.

AVS customers will be migrated to Crucial's platform this month, which will provide them with better availability and speed, a Crucial spokesperson said.

AVS CEO and founder Nigel Burke will join Crucial, but there was no indication that other staff will go with him.

"Nigel brings a huge amount of capability to the Crucial team, having achieved a great deal in his 17 years at AVS," said Kruizinga.

"His experience will be invaluable to us as we push forward in 2015."

Burke said "Crucial sets an excellent standard for quality Australian hosting, with a similar culture and ethos to AVS.

"The acquisition will benefit AVS customers with added resources, fantastic support and high performance infrastructure - it's a win-win."
