Internet Vikings, a global cloud hosting provider, has announced its expansion into the US market by offering licensed hosting to igaming operators in West Virginia, as part of its goal to provide hosting services to companies in all US states where online gaming is legally permitted.
With more states each year legalizing igaming, Internet Vikings looks to become a top igaming hosting provider in the US by setting up its first data center in the Mountain State, where it has already begun to attract clients.
The provider will soon provide customizable hosting solutions, including 24 cores, 64 GB RAM, 500 GB storage, and 50 Mbit bandwidth per month across 12 more states, beginning with Michigan and Pennsylvania before move on to New Jersey, Louisiana, Arizona, Indiana, Iowa, Colorado, Ohio, Tennessee, Illinois, and Virginia.
Founder and CCO of Internet Vikings, Rickard Vikström, commented: “We are excited to start our journey into the United States. It’s a huge challenge and wonderful opportunity for us. With this expansion, we want to cement our position as a leading igaming hosting provider on a global scale.”
Since November 2020, Elena Kvakova, the head of US Expansion at Internet Vikings, has been working on collecting the necessary information, preparing documentation, and resolving issues.
Kvakova stated: “Hosting has always been our strong suit and our main product. As we were learning the ins and outs of the gambling hosting regulations and market in the USA, we noticed a few things that could be done better. And to us, a Swedish company, an agile approach and customer focus are at the forefront of everything we do.
“That is what we are trying to do in the key states right now – set up secure, reliable, cost-effective, and fully-formed hosting solutions, so that the new providers that are entering the US market will be able to focus on other things.”
