Web Hosting ReviewsSCRANTON, PA BurstNET Technologies, Inc.™, a leading provider of budget web hosting services, has announced its  expansion into the European hosting marketplace, with the opening of its wholly-owned subsidiary, BurstNET® Limited. To support its expansion into Europe, BurstNET® has selected Manchester, United Kingdom, for it’s European base of operations, where it will meet both international customer demand and globally redundant hosted infrastructure needs. BurstNET® aims to continue its solid expansion and to further  consolidate its leading position in web hosting worldwide.

The new BurstNET® European network gives clientele access to fully redundant multi-10Gbps connectivity between BurstNET’s US and EU/UK network, as well as major Internet hubs in Manchester, London, & Amsterdam, for transit and European peering exchange access. Upon turn-up, BurstNET® immediately has one of the largest webhosting-specific networks in Europe, with many providers still operating on 1Gbps connections, rather than 10Gbps.

“The demand for our services to be expanded to other regions, particularly in Europe, has been heard loud and clear”, stated BurstNET® CEO Shawn M. Arcus. “We’ve had serious interest from our existing client base, which solidified that the time was right to move forward. We’ve had this effort in development for many months and are extremely pleased to be able to go live with our European service. We look forward to meeting the needs of our European clientele, and providing the unmatched service and support, at extremely low price points, that we have been known for in the US.”

BurstNET® has seen significant growth in its US hosting business, bringing the company to more than 10,000 dedicated and virtual private servers currently in service. Founded in 1991, BurstNET® is one of the oldest web hosting operations in the industry. The company is known as a pioneer of the Web Hosting industry, having been heavily involved in the creation of the industry standard CPanel® control panel, and co-creator of the industry’s first $99 dedicated server. The company operates one of the oldest and largest resale programs in the industry, servicing thousands of resellers, as the backend for many popular hosting companies.
