Dropmysite is tying up this deal to bring in revenues from the burgeoning Spanish-speaking economies around the world. Spanish is the third most popular language used on the Internet with 164 million users in 2011 (Internet World Stats)1. With Dropmysite already available in Spanish, it will be easy for these users to adopt the website and email backup service.
Xpress Hosting, the fastest growing web-hosting company in Mexico, was chosen as the partner in the region due to its large client base and geographical reach. The company will offer Dropmysite’s services to its over 100,000 customers with over 500,000 web domains in countries like Mexico and Argentina.
In addition, Xpress Hosting will market all Dropmysite products like its website back up services throughout South America, Spain and Spanish-speaking regions in the US like Texas and Florida.
"Xpress hosting is a great partner for us in Mexico. The Latin American market is huge and Xpress Hosting’s expertise will be invaluable to us." says John Fearon, CEO and Founder of Dropmysite.
This co-branding and reselling deal is perfect for Dropmysite and Xpress Hosting. By linking up with a trusted local entity, this will bring the global brand, directly into the Spanish-speaking market.
With an integrated website, email backup product coupled with aggressive marketing, both parties expect the collaboration to be a resounding success.
"Dropmysite is a perfect fit for our customer base, we're always looking for ways to improve our services to make sure our customers get nothing short of the very best that we can offer and Dropmysite allow us to do just that", said Julian Flores, CEO of Xpress Hosting”
With significant partners like GMO Cloud in Japan and now Xpress Hosting in Mexico, Dropmysite is rapidly building its presence all around the world.
Dropmysite has worked its product to be localized by being translated to 8 languages and having local offices in the US, Argentina, Japan, India and Singapore.
The Dropmysite team will continue its efforts to find other worthwhile companies to collaborate with. Also, over the next few months, Dropmysite expects to annouce more such deals on its road to profitability.
For this Singaporean startup, this is a small but significant step towards the grand vision to eventually “hacer una copia de respaldo de internet” or backing up the Internet.
