BURLINGTON, ON - June 14, 2021 – HostPapa Inc., a leading Canadian web hosting and cloud service provider for small and medium businesses (SMBs), has announced the acquisition of Canadian company LFC Hosting.

Loose Foot Computing Limited (LFC Hosting) was founded in 1996 and began its web hosting journey in Regina, Saskatchewan, in 1998.

Since then, they’ve established data centres in Denver and Montreal, remaining true to their roots and offering low-cost website solutions. LFC Hosting has serviced tens of thousands of websites worldwide, providing Do-It-For-Me and Do-It-Yourself websites, domains, shared and VPS hosting, and colocation.

"LFC has always been committed to providing an extraordinary service to our customers,” said Robert Sauchyn, CEO of LFC Hosting. “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."

"This year marks our 25th year of business and, over those years, our staff have been the backbone of our reputation for a high-quality hosting product and customer service,” added LFC Hosting’s Director, Andrew MacCorquodale. “We are pleased that many of our team members have transitioned to HostPapa as part of this transaction, providing continuity to our customers who, in many cases, have remained loyal to LFC over our entire history."

“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.
