Wix’s Massive Six-Year Growth Supported By Its Partnership With Hostway
Recently IPO-ed Web Development Platform Wix Has Been Hostway Customer Since 2008, Growing Its User Base From 10,000 To Over 48 Million Worldwide
CHICAGO, June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Hostway, a leading provider of cloud, managed and hybrid hosting services, prides itself on its strong track record of nurturing young businesses and watching them grow. One such example is long-time Hostway partner, Wix.com Ltd. (Nasdaq: WIX), which completed its successful IPO in November 2013.
Wix, a leading global web development platform, has partnered with Hostway since 2008 for infrastructure services, a collaboration that has proven beneficial for both companies. Hostway offers support at every phase of the business cycle and delivers on-demand resources companies need when scaling up quickly – a service the company repeatedly fulfilled as a Wix partner.
Wix provides more than 48 million users worldwide with user-friendly solutions for a business’s online needs – website creation, e-commerce capabilities, business management tools, third-party app integration, mobile solutions and much more – all from the Wix Cloud. Hostway provides key data center and cloud services, supporting Wix operations with multiple servers across numerous geographical locations to ensure redundancy. By working with Hostway, Wix ensures that its customers can access the websites they depend on to manage their businesses and other activities, even in the event of a natural disaster.
Since the company first began working with Hostway six years ago, it has become a web development juggernaut. Hostway’s versatile, scalable infrastructure has supported and confidently underpinned Wix’s growth every step of the way.
“Our goal is to enable everyone to build and manage a fully integrated and dynamic online presence themselves. Growing from a small startup with 10,000 users to a global company serving tens of millions, takes not only vision but also top-notch resources,” said Nir Zohar, Wix.com President and COO. “Working with Hostway was a key component of that scaling – the Hostway team was instrumental in providing the infrastructure we needed to succeed in hyper-growth mode.”
“The Wix-Hostway partnership is a great example of how tech companies can collaborate successfully to focus on their core areas of expertise and deliver uninterrupted, enterprise-class services to end customers,” said Aaron Hollobaugh, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Candidly, Wix’s incredible growth rates were anticipated and well-deserved – they have the vision to change the way people interact with the web. We’re proud to play a role in supporting them as they serve their customers and change the way we all consume web resources.”
