shared hosting

VANCOUVER, BC – Canadian Web Hosting, a leading provider in web hosting, cloud hosting, and data centre infrastructure, has announced that it has once again successfully completed its annual independent audit for Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II, in accordance to AT 101, making this its eight consecutive year of completion.

The SOC 2 Type II audit was conducted for the period between February 1, 2017 and January 31, 2018 and examined all of Canadian Web Hosting’s services, including dedicated server hosting, cloud hosting, Canadian colocation, and web hosting services. The audit process scanned Canadian Web Hosting’s compliance to industry best practices, covering controls, processes and procedures. Upon completion, it was determined that its control activities were compliant and the company displayed the ability to effectively operate throughout the reporting period.


Canadian Web Hosting is AT 101 SOC 2 Type II compliant to meet data and security requirements for its customers. The SOC 2 Type II report is available upon request and can be obtained by customers, members of the media, or other interested individuals.

One of Canadian Web Hosting’s core missions is to help businesses meet their certification requirements in accordance with AT 101 (formerly SAS70 and CSAE 3416 Type II), which meets the new international service organization standards for Type I and Type II reporting. As a result, its web hosting customers that have services including dedicated servers, VPS, cloud servers, cloud computing, cloud storage, and/or shared hosting can feel confident that they are in a secure environment equipped with the proper controls for internet operations and highly available IT services.

“Canadian Web Hosting has always understood the need to provide customers with a reliable, safe and secure hosting environment. By going through our annual AT101 SOC 2 Type II audit, we assure our customers that we are committed to this,” said Kings Wong, VP of Operations at Canadian Web Hosting and Certified Information Security Manager (CISM). “Our clients can feel assured that they are receiving the technology, support and verifiable processes that exceed industry standards for compliance.”

NEW YORK CITY, NY – dhosting.com is an exciting new web hosting startup which has just launched a breakthrough service that will prove to be a real game changer in today’s sluggish hosting market. Dynamic Edge is a service that combines the advantages of both cloud computing and shared hosting. With the approval of thousands of testers, Dynamic Edge is now ready to take the market by storm.

Founded by an international team of hosting industry veterans with more than 16 years of experience each, dhosting.com has created Dynamic Edge with the intention of challenging the market status quo and the mindset of its customers, just as Amazon did with the development of AWS.


Dynamic Edge is a truly scalable managed hosting service that unleashes the true potential of websites. Devoid of the typical resource constraints of shared hosting, Dynamic Edge is defined solely by CPU, RAM, and SSD resources (as is the case with cloud computing) and as a result, provides the advantage of fully automatic scaling of these resources without the need to restart the server. Thanks to this innovative solution, clients can scale IT infrastructure costs together with their website without worrying about aspects related to server management.

“Our mission is to provide hosting for high-flying projects. We perfectly understand the needs of customers thanks to many years of creating numerous products on the market. We believe that existing services have as many advantages as disadvantages. The previous model of scaling customers’ business was based on the fact that projects were run on shared hosting, after which they were gradually switched over to VPS servers and dedicated servers. However, the main problem for typical customers was the high cost of the service, as they had to bear the additional cost of administrator remuneration for the server and the management panel. With Dynamic Edge, clients will benefit by paying a subscription fee similar to shared hosting services, but with hourly billing for additional resources, so they will only pay more when these resources are used. It is very similar to the model for
cloud computing, but with us, the client receives a fully managed service and an advanced web page management panel.” Raphael Kusmider, CEO of dhosting.com.

By the end of the year, the goal will be to have achieved significant functional development of Dynamic Edge, including the expansion of existing modules and the creation of complementary modules that will serve to strengthen product advantage and increase customer satisfaction.

Pittsburgh, PA – Liberated Syndication, Inc. (OTCQB: LSYN) (“Libsyn”) announced today that it closed its acquisition of Internet hosting company Pair Networks, Inc. (Pair) on December 27, 2017. Libsyn paid $13.5 million in cash and issued 1,579,613 shares of restricted common stock valued at $2.5 million to acquire 100% of Pair. The combined businesses represented approximately $23 million in annual revenue and approximately $7 million in EBITDA for 2017.

“We are very excited about the opportunities that come from combining these two great, long standing, Pittsburgh-based companies,” said Chris Spencer, Libsyn CEO. “We have tremendous confidence in Pair’s leadership and employees and we intend to fuel revenue growth for the combined entities through sales and marketing investment, cross selling new and existing hosting products and streamlining network computing infrastructure.”


In order to finance the transaction, Liberated Syndication borrowed $10 million under a newly established Senior Secured Credit Facility (the “Bank Facility”) with First Commonwealth Bank, which also was closed on December 27, 2017. Borrowings under the Bank Facility are at variable rates which are, at the borrowers’ option. As of December 27, 2017, interest is set at LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate) plus 175 basis points, or 3.44%.

Pittsburgh-based Capital Foundry, LLC acted as advisor to the Company and Arranger for the Bank Facility.

As of December 31, 2017, the combined companies had approximately 82,000 monthly subscribers for hosting services. Management believes there are many cross selling opportunities including website and blog hosting services for podcasters, full-service WordPress solutions for website and blog development, domain name registration and hosting, as well as co-location hosting services for larger podcast networks, an area of significant potential growth in the podcasting industry.

“Podcasts are expected to continue to grow in popularity and have become an integral part of brand strategy along with websites, blogs and social media outlets. Pair’s hosting, domain and WordPress offerings are the tools podcast producers look for to develop online strategies to extend their reach,” said Laurie Sims, Libsyn President. “Libsyn is often seen as a media company because of the type of content we host, but we are fundamentally a hosting platform. We have a lot of synergy with Pair and understand the monthly subscription business model. We are thrilled to add the Pair team, its reliable infrastructure and world class support they provide.”

Additionally, Libsyn management believes there are growth opportunities to be had by capitalizing on Pair’s vast computing infrastructure, cloud based hosting services
and utilizing Pair’s highly regarded customer support team. Focused cyber security services is another area of additional revenue growth potential given recent threats and limited expertise for small and medium-sized businesses.

Management plans to host a shareholder conference call during the first quarter of 2018 to outline its plans for the combined companies in greater detail.
