The Digital Pacific brand has been built on reliability, affordability and trust and they have mostly relied on word of mouth to grow their business.
Digital Pacific acquired Crucial in 2015 and Anchor in 2017 and were themselves acquired by Hostopia in 2017. Hostopia also acquired Panthur in 2017. So far, the Australian brands acquired by Hostopia do not seem to have suffered any loss in service or reliability despite their overseas ownership.
