Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Acequote.com, the veteran UK e-marketplace, is shutting its doors to new subscribers, following the decision of German parent, DCI, to withdraw from the sector.

But the company will continue to run its service for existing customers "until subscription expiry", it says in a pop-up message on the Web site. "So long as there are customers, we will be providing a service," MD Robin Beetger told us.

Based in Cardiff, Acequote is the only Welsh dotcom that we have ever heard of. Founders Gary Munz and Helga St. Blaize sold the business to DCI in May 2000 for DM85m cash. At one point more than 20 people worked for the company: today there are just two, with all services outsourced to third parties. ®
