Dropmysite, founded by Singaporean entrepreneur John Fearon, said it aims expand to the fast growing Spanish-speaking economies around the world, especially in Latin America. According to the Internet World Stats, Spanish is the third most popular language used on the Internet with 164 million users as of 2011.  

Xpress Hosting is the fastest growing web-hosting company in Mexico. It has been chosen as a partner in the region due to its large client base and geographical reach. Dropmysite says it will benefit from this partnership by having access to Xpress Hosting’s 100,000 customers with over 500,000 web domains in countries such as Mexico and Argentina.

Xpress Hosting will also market all Dropmysite products in South America, Spain and Spanish-speaking regions in the United States like Texas and Florida, according to the agreement.

Dropmysite has also recently opened local offices in the US, Argentina, Japan and India and was selected as one of the hottest 20 startups in 2013 by Singapore Business Review.
