Monday saw an announcement from Domain registrar and Web hosting providers, BlueHost and HostMonster that their collective hosting platforms have exceeded 700,000 domains hosted – a 33 percent boost since September 2007.
Significant growth in the two companies over the last few months has resulted in 175,000 new domains hosted for the period of the last quarter. Both Web hosts have developed their product portfolio via partnerships with principal companies to embrace spam protection, coupons for free PPC advertising credits, shopping carts and merchant account services.
Matt Heaton, CEO and founder of BlueHost and HostMonster stated “Its easy for a small company to say they have grown by 25 percent, 50 percent or even 100 percent in a quarter when they are talking about a few thousand customers. What really starts turning heads is when you can say, we just grew by 175,000 domains last quarter and the first 525,000 took us 4 years.”
Heaton also broadcast the launch of domain registrar and hosting provider FastDomain. The ICANN accredited domain registrar plans to provide domain registration and management services in conjunction with hosting solutions.
