    Ironic eight-figure deal marks more Euro-registrar consolidation.

    The acquirer is Loopia, a Swedish registrar backed by Danish private equity firm Axcel.

    The deal seems to have closed around the same time as
    Loopia’s acquisition of .SE Direkt from Swedish registry IIS, though news only broke today.

    WebSupport reportedly hosts around 173,000 domains, though it’s not clear whether it acts as registrar for all. It’s not ICANN-accredited, but it does resell domains in a wide range of gTLDs.
