BGF-backed Miss Group has acquired Hemsida24 along with its sub-brand HEYMO. Hemsida24 is an internet-based sitebuilder for websites and e-commerce and has delivered solutions for small and medium-sized businesses in Scandinavia since 2008. The strategic acquisition consolidates Miss Group’s position as one of the leading web hosting provider for SMB companies in Scandinavia.

“I have been following Hemsida24 AB for many years and I am impressed by their organic growth and simple and user friendly sitebuilder. With this acquisition we are adding 14 000 paying customers and now exceeds 80 000 customers in Miss Group. Hemsida24 also contributes with an EBITDA of 1 million Euros” said Mattias Kaneteg, founder and CEO at Miss Group

Ludvig Granberg, Co-founder & CEO at Hemsida24 added: “When we started Hemsida24 ten years ago I could never imagine that we would have more than 14,000 customers and such a great team. To continue to grow from here Hemsida24 and Heymo needs to be part of something bigger and this is where Miss Group comes in. I’m truly impressed with their expertise in marketing, sales and growth and I’m confident that Hemsida24 and Miss Group will continue to grow into something much larger.”

Now that we have an established model and highly successful marketing campaigns which have generated strong organic growth, we are in a strong position to accelerate our expansion through acquisitions.

“As our minority partner, BGF provides access to a large network both in the UK and internationally and potentially more funding as we expand. We are very much looking forward to working with them.”

Pinesh Mehta, an investor at BGF who will join the Board of Miss Group said: “With a proven track record in building successful businesses, Mattias and his team have quickly scaled Miss Group by attracting and retaining a high volume of customers. This is testament to the group’s model, relationships with customers and partners, and focus on high-quality service.
“Miss Group has a clear and well thought out international growth strategy which they are ready to push ahead with. We’re delighted to be supporting this and to be backing such an ambitious, innovative and professional team.”

The investment in Miss Group was coordinated by Stuart Dutton of Sedulo, and led for BGF by Pinesh Mehta, Rhys Davenport and Neil Inskip who are part of the Manchester-based team covering the North West. The team recently announced investments in the owner and operator of Albert’s Schloss and Rudy’s Neapolitan Pizza, Mission Mars, and digital mapping company Gaist.

Google Chrome removes the green ‘Secure’ lock on HTTPS sites

2018-08-31 — by Alexandra Linnuste

secure-2-960x502.jpg

Google says security should be so normal you don’t see it. But bad security should be in your face.

Today when you visit a HTTPS website on Google’s Chrome browser, a green security lock is shown telling you that you’re visiting a secure page that’s encrypted and protected from cyberattacks. Google’s goal is to make sure 100% of the internet is HTTPS.

By May 2018, 83 percent of websites visited by people browsing on Chrome were HTTPS. It’s gotten to the point for Google where you’re much more likely to visit an HTTPS page on Chrome than a HTTP (nonsecure) page. In other words, people understand the importance of having a secure website and if something is the norm, you don’t need a label telling you that everything is normal. Therefore in september, Google will remove the “Secure” label and will eventually stop displaying the lock, too.

With this update, Google makes it clear that having HTTPS is the norm and not having HTTPS is not, which means that they will display even more warnings when a website is not using a SSL-Certificate – A warning icon and “Not Secure” label in the URL bar. This will start showing in October.

If you are late to the game, still not using a SSL-Certificate, now is the time! See our prices for SSL-Certificates here:
