After launching in the two new states, Internet Vikings will be able to offer its hosting services to gaming companies located in the respective areas.

Internet Vikings has secured its Ancillary Supplier License for Arizona and its Vendor Registration in New York.

This makes it the first sports betting hosting provider to be fully licensed in Arizona, which has seen an increasing demand for DDoS-protected hosting services.

In order to make this possible, Internet Vikings partnered with a local licensed data center to comply with legislation norms.

Rickard Vikström, Founder and CEO of Internet Vikings, said: "Acquiring approval from the local authorities in Arizona and New York was pivotal for us and marks a major achievement.

"New York is the largest and highest-grossing sports betting market in North America, representing strategic importance for the industry.

“However, it was even more important to be able to bring our offering to Arizona where the number of sportsbooks keeps increasing fast."

The iGaming hosting provider also partnered with a local casino in upstate New York to launch in the Empire State.

This makes the move completely compliant from a legal perspective, but will also assist with connectivity and performance standards for the business.

The full range of Internet Vikings services includes cloud hosting, hosting co-location, managed hosting, SEO hosting, VMware hosting and replication servers.

Kristoffer Ottosson, COO of Internet Vikings, said: "We continuously leverage our infrastructure to guarantee reliability, scalability, and security of our services and are prepared to expand to meet the evolving needs of our customers."
