Today is our birthday and we are celebrating for the next two days. In this 14th year of our existence, we decided to take a walk down memory lane. Plus, we have a giveaway that you can learn about, here and here!
In the early 2000’s, all web hosting companies did pretty much the same thing. They covered basic web hosting with out-of-the-box solutions, and they did it poorly. When Matt Heaton and Danny Ashworth founded Bluehost in 2003, their goal was simple: build a better hosting company.
Bluehost’s dedication to quality earned the respect of partners in open source and development communities, including WordPress. Its unprecedented approach to providing 24/7 support attracted loyal fans worldwide, and soon Bluehost’s referral program grew to be one of the largest in the world. In 2010, Bluehost earned its 2 millionth customer and in 2012 was acquired by Endurance International Group. With their backing and support we’ve been able to accelerate our mission in every way. Learn more about our parent company and how we work better together.
Since joining the Endurance family, Bluehost has continued to grow dramatically. We now over a wide range of next-gen cloud solutions, services, and integrated products. Our brand leverages new channels and markets across the globe.
