Nexigen Digital has acquired Bluefish Hosting
On 1 March 2024, Nexigen Digital announced that it had acquired the customers and assets of Bluefish Hosting.
Nexigen Digital is Australia’s largest privately owned digital service provider and is home to market-leading brands including VentraIP, Synergy Wholesale and Digital Eagles. The company employs more than 80 local staff who provide 24/7 customer service and technical support to more than 300,000 Australian customers.
This acquisition will see all customers from Bluefish Hosting transferred to Nexigen Digital’s retail arm, VentraIP, by the end of the month.
We are pleased to welcome Bluefish Hosting’s customers to the family. With so much competition from international companies, it is always an achievement for us to keep everything local and provide a range of new products and services that will help them continue to grow their business online.

Common questions you might have
For the time being everything will remain the same, and you will be billed as usual via your Bluefish Hosting account.
Until further notice, all Bluefish Hosting domain names will continue to be managed within your Bluefish Hosting account.
All domain names will soon be automatically and seamlessly moved over into your VIPcontrol account. As most of Bluefish Hosting’s domain names are registered via our sister company Synergy Wholesale, we’re able to seamlessly move all domain names without the need to change domain registrar.
It’s important to note that these changes will not impact any services you have tied to your domain name (such as email or web hosting services) and these will continue to function as normal.
If your domain does not appear in VIPcontrol and you’d like our team to assist you with a domain transfer, please do not hesitate to call us on
