Netregistry Group has acquired Distribute.IT along with Click n Go customers and assets. Monetary details haven’t been disclosed.
Distribute.IT was recently a victim of a hacking attack, which affected 4800 domains and accounts.
As part of the acquisition deal, Distribute.IT’s customers will be given an option to move their services across to Netregistry.
“We have a great deal of sympathy and concern for the consequences to Distribute.IT staff, management and customers of this unfortunate incident,” Netregistry CEO, Larry Bloch, said. It will also honour all payments for hosting at Distribute.IT, Bloch said.
“While we are assessing billing and payment history, we are giving all Distribute.IT customers a free hosting service as soon as humanely possible so they can upload their site and get email addresses working,” he said.
auDA CEO, Chris Disspain, supported the acquisition.
“I’m pleased that Netregistry Group, Distribute.IT and auDA has been able to cooperate effectively to arrive at an arrangement that is consistent with auDA’s goal of ensuring the ongoing stability and security of .au,” Disspain said.
