Bluehost is web hosting company started in 2003 by Matt Heaton and Danny Ashworth now owned by Endurance International Group. In 2007, the company hit the milestone of hosting 500,000 domains then 1 million domains in 2008. Bluehost then introduced a feature called CPU throttling in 2009. CPU throttling refers to limiting a user’s CPU usage whenever they are pulling to much server resources at any given time. This would effectively freeze a client’s site which would usually result in their site being down for several hours. In April of 2013, Bluehost launched VPS and dedicated hosting options. A few other important dates include May 2014 where they added optimized hosting for WordPress and July 2015 where they released Cloudsites. Today, Bluehost hosts over 2 million websites worldwide.
