Bluehost

Bluehost

Bluehost is a web hosting company owned by Endurance International Group. It is one of the 20 largest web hosts, collectively hosting well over 1.9+ million domains with its sister companies, HostMonster, FastDomain and iPage.
Bluehost was among those studied in the analysis of web-based hosting services in collaborative online learning programs.

In 2009, BlueHost introduced a new feature to all customers – CPU throttling. CPU throttling (at BlueHost and similar hosting services) simply refers to the process of reducing user’s CPU usage in whenever the particular user is pulling “too much” server resources at one time. At that particular time, BlueHost would freeze (or drastically reduce) client sites' CPU usage substantially. This effectively shut down clients' websites hosted on the BlueHost server for several hours throughout the day.
In 2010, BlueHost was acquired by Endurance International Group.
On June 12, 2011 company founder Matt Heaton announced on his blog that he was stepping down as CEO to focus on the company hosting platform's design and technical structure. Company COO Dan Handy would take over as CEO.
In 2013, Bluehost now offers VPS and Dedicated server hosting.
In January, 2015, Endurance International Group appointed Mike Olson to be CEO of Bluehost, as Dan Handy moved to enterprise-wide mobile development for small businesses.
