Wholesale Web hosting company Interland Inc. next month will change its name to Web.com Inc.
Interland in December bought Web.com, acquiring approximately 9,000 additional subscribers, and said yesterday its name change will help it align more closely with its core Web services business.
The company will trade on the Nasdaq stock exchange under Web.coms ticker, WWWW.
“The Web.com name embraces everything in a brand that offers Web services to both small businesses and consumers,” Jeff Stibel, president and CEO of Interland, said in a news release. “From a business perspective, we feel the name change will enable powerful new marketing, business development and sales opportunities. While we intend to leverage the Interland name as it is well known within the technical community, we will focus on making Web.com the standard for creating a powerful Web presence.”
The name change will take place on Monday, March 20.
