Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Host Europe PLC - which was acquired in April by Pipex Communications for £31m - has changed its name to Pipex Communications Hosting Ltd.

Host Europe PLC, which provides webhost services, has now been delisted from the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange. As part of the name change, Host will also undergo a corporate makeover to bring it in line with Pipex's existing livery.

Host Europe's major products - 123-reg.co.uk, WebFusion, Magic Moments and Dedicated Servers - would continue to operate as sub-brands "for the foreseeable future".

Pipex acquired Host Europe in April for £31.2m cash. The companies said the deal was a neat match, as more and more customers want telecom services from a single supplier. ®
