November 3, 2004, Fort Lauderdale, USA – Hostopia is pleased to announce its selection by Xspedius

in business web services.”

Randall P. Muench, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Xspedius, says, “By consolidating
our hosting and email services on Hostopia’s platform, we can provide companies with a more cohesive
and comprehensive set of features, including progressive price points and improved reliability. Hostopia
