Pipex Communications PLC
28 April 2005

28 April 2005

                           PIPEX Communications plc

                    Acquisition of Donhost Limited for £5.9m

  Strengthens hosting offering and takes total PIPEX hosting customers to over
            250,000 and domain name registrations to over 1 million

PIPEX Communications plc ("PIPEX"), the telecoms network operator and provider
of hosting and broadband solutions, is pleased to announce the acquisition of
Donhost Limited ("Donhost"), the dedicated and shared hosting and domain name

Donhost is a web hosting business providing shared and dedicated servers,
reseller solutions, domain name registration and Internet access to business and
residential customers in the UK and worldwide.   As at the end of March 2005
Donhost had 92,000 end customers for hosting services and 120,000 domain names,
which takes the total number of domain name registrations for the PIPEX group to
over 1 million.

Donhost has been profitable and cash generative under its founder and Managing
Director Daniel Conlon.  During the year ended 31, December 2004 Donhost's
unaudited turnover was £1.3 million and unaudited PBT was £707,000.  Donhost
brings with it cash balances of £1.4 million at acquisition.  Over the last 12
months Donhost has grown substantially, benefiting from the increasing demand
for sophisticated web hosting solutions fulfilled by its range of fully managed

Donhost's staff will continue to operate the company and service its customers
and Daniel Conlon will remain within the PIPEX group. Both companies are
optimistic about the opportunities created for cost savings and cross-selling.

PIPEX has acquired Donhost for a total consideration of £5.9 million which will
be satisfied by cash consideration of £4.1 million and £1.8 million in Ordinary
Shares of 1p each in PIPEX at a price of 7.75p. The 22,840,000 Ordinary Shares
are expected to be admitted to AIM by 29 April 2005.

Peter Dubens, Chairman of PIPEX, said:

"As shown by our recent preliminary results, PIPEX now has an extremely strong
product portfolio comprising broadband, hosting and network services.  Having
completed the integration of Host Europe and Nildram over the last 8 months, we
are now well placed to further strengthen the hosting part of our portfolio with
the acquisition of Donhost.  I am confident that its product set and extremely
efficient reseller model will enhance our current hosting offering and we look
forward to working with Donhost's staff and customers."
