Net Internet hosting Canada Buys Area Title Registrar Sibername

Sibername, an Ottawa-based domain name registrar and cloud services provider, has been acquired by Web Hosting Canada (WHC). Financial terms of this acquisition were not disclosed.

Founded in 2001, Sibername is an ICANN-accredited registrar. As a provider of domain name services, Sibername is particularly active in Canada, where it provides .CA domain name backordering services, referred to as To Be Released (TBR) domains.

Emil Falcon“With this acquisition, WHC will not only significantly increase its clients, staff and domains under management, but will also create value for its existing clients and services, thanks to Sibername’s domain-centric technology stack and its .CA domain backordering expertise,” said Emil Falcon, founder and CEO of Web Hosting Canada.

Web Hosting Canada will be acquiring all of Sibername’s existing hosting and domain name contracts, its TBR domain backordering platform as well as its ICANN accreditation. The two brands will be operating independently in the short term. Its teams and service offerings will be gradually integrated though, to leverage the best technologies and increase the overall efficiency of its customer service and operations teams.

“For 20 years, Sibername has thrived as Canada’s premier domain name service provider and has had a distinct, customer-centric approach,” said Ender Turkoglu, acting CEO of Sibername. “Today, we are happy to announce that the business will be carried on by a new team that shares the same passion:  the well-being of both its clients and staff.”
