It has been a year that has seen Domicilium buck the world economic trend with record growth. Bill Mummery Executive Director of Celton Manx Limited [] commented "I have worked with Domicilium as a strategic partner for almost ten years. Their new IOM hosting facility coupled with their exceptional set of Technical Skills makes them a truly world class Hosting Provider".

Phil Adcock Technical Director of Domicilium said “Our industry leading datacentre facility at Ronaldsway represents the latest phase of our sustained investment in the Isle of Man over the last seventeen years. Our nomination clearly demonstrates that the Isle of Man is considered as leading the field in the use of technology in its pursuit of e-business excellence”.
