Argeweb B.V. (“Argeweb”), the most customer-friendly web host in the Netherlands, joins Total Webhosting Solutions (“TWS”), the fast-growing Dutch market leader in web hosting. The collaboration with TWS enables Argeweb to continue its premium service model and to continue growing in the premium market segment.
Zwolle, 29 November 2019 – Argeweb is one of the largest and most customer-oriented Dutch web hosting companies. Over the past 20 years, a market leading position has been built up in the premium market segment. Argeweb has always remained an independent company, even after the acquisition by KPN in 2014. In its cooperation with TWS, Argeweb’s independence will continue to be guaranteed and the current organization will have the opportunity to further grow and innovate. Together with TWS, Argeweb is the absolute Dutch market leader and there is every opportunity to further expand this leading position.
The sale of its web hosting portfolio is in line with KPN’s strategy to simplify. That is why KPN recently started migrating all of its domain & web hosting related services to Argeweb. This internal consolidation has led Argeweb to become a top-5 player in the Netherlands. After the internal consolidation, KPN sought a good and permanent home for its web hosting customers. In the search for a good acquisition partner, it was crucial that the premium service that Argeweb’s customers are used to would be continued.
Koen van Deudekom, CEO Argeweb
“I am happy with the opportunity that TWS offers Argeweb, as a company and for me personally. With TWS as a partner, we can continue to guarantee our premium service in the future, and we will continue to invest in new and relevant services for our customers. We also expect that applying the learnings and experiences from other TWS sister companies will accelerate our organic growth in the coming years. Furthermore, we have gained a lot of operational knowledge and experience regarding technical migrations in recent years, which we are happy to use to do our own acquisitions in this rapidly consolidating market”.
Matthieu van Amerongen, CEO TWS
“The web hosting market is not growing fast and is expected to consolidate further.

Each entrepreneur that joins TWS brings its own unique set of performance skills and experiences, and TWS creates an environment in which entrepreneurs can learn from each other.
