Root Level Technology has made several acquisitions you might be familiar with:

Host & Store

ServerSavior

Dedi France

URPad.net

K-DISKNETWORKS

vmport.eu

 

and now: semoweb

 

Congrats to Eric, Root Level Technology and Dustin!

I don't know what Root Level Technology's plans are.  They list the acquisitions on their website and seem to operate the companies as individual units or "products" as they've labeled them.  Obviously, there is integration to some extent on the backend, like one tech / administrative team.

Root Level Technology LLC officially launched in January of 2013 as a spin-off from a successful software development company that developed applications for large government entities such as the Federal Reserve.

Yall are both wrong.  It's GDI.  The new Global Defense Initiative (shell company is Root Level Technology) is preparing for a NOD Attack by bulking up their online defenses (e.g. by having tons and tons of servers), especially since NOD has Cabal.  

Ok I'm done with this joke.  Back on topic!

EIG* no?

I get them mixed up all the time too.

I heard murmurs of this the other day as well. I can't find any official announcement but I would assume Semoweb customers have been told unless perhaps the deal isn't finalized yet? Don't know. (Kind of like URPad couldn't comment that it was sold until everything was finalized despite the thread on LET stating we had)

The folks over at Root Level Tech seem like good people with the resources to properly maintain and grow brands so I suspect everything will turn out just fine. ;)

I'm a SemoWeb customer, and haven't received anything about this.

Root Level Technology seems to be taking over quite a few host's lately.

Lets hope something don't go wrong down the road.

Anyone knows any details about the deals ?
 

Nope.

I don't understand why those being acquired are in stealth mode and snapped on the lips.   Being bought was always a cause for celebration and I always believed in informing your customers of the deal and what it means to them....

Could be that they are under some kind of NDA or getting used to with everything and preparing massive announcements? It takes time :)

Yup, you can see Semoweb listed on RLT's website, in the scrolling box at the bottom, right after "Reliabox" and before "Host&Store". My only experience with RLT is through URPad, but the support on URPad has been good since RLT bought them out. Still, whether reasonably or not, I'm always suspicious of a company that's acquiring a whole bunch of other companies without directly providing tangible services.

Well thats new.

I created most the content for the site and put the other brands in the footer, but not Semoweb. So I'd say that settles it. I messaged a guy who works at RLT on Skype earlier and asked about it but didn't get a response and have ticketed Semoweb about 20 minutes ago, but wasn't aware it was already on RLT's site.

sometimes you can smell acquisition few months away. when a company suddenly drops prices too much. seems strategy to increase userbase before selling. this how i see what was happening to urpad and semoweb in past few months
