CEO of LFC Hosting, Robert Sauchyn explained in a press release (opens in new tab) how being acquired by HostPapa will allow it to expand its services even further, saying:

"LFC has always been committed to providing an extraordinary service to our customers. We are pleased to have found the right partner to entrust with elevating that service to the next level by leveraging HostPapa’s exceptional capabilities and scale."

LFC Hosting is now HostPapa

According to LFC Hosting's director Andrew MacCorquodale, many of the company's team members have already made the transition to HostPapa as part of the deal. This will help provide continuity to many of LFC Hosting's customers who have remained loyal to the web host over its entire history.

HostPapa founder and CEO Jamie Opalchuk thanked Robert and Andrew for their work while welcoming LFC Hosting's existing customers to their new home, saying:

“We’re happy to welcome LFC customers to the HostPapa family and want to assure them that we’ll go the extra mile to guarantee their satisfaction with our services. I would also like to congratulate Robert and Andrew for building a fantastic company with loyal customers.”

Once the deal is complete, LFC Hosting customers can expect to see several performance improvements to their web hosting packages as part of HostPapa's investment into the company's infrastructure.
