From its origins in 2003, WordPress has evolved from an open-source publishing platform to the most popular Content Management System on the web with over 70 million websites. The transformation has been nothing short of astonishing.
WordPress has recommended Bluehost for web hosting since 2005. We’ve designed our servers to run WordPress like a dream, and have grown to be a top host of all WordPress recommended hosting providers. It has been exciting to see WordPress grow over the past ten years. Like WordPress, we are committed to the open source community and we are proud to sponsor WordCamps all over the world.
We made this timeline to showcase the major events, updates and new releases WordPress has produced during the past twelve years. Enjoy!
