Bluehost has grown up side-by-side with the Internet. The company that was to become Bluehost was founded in 1996. Now owned by Endurance International Group, the company hosts more than one million websites.
That said, Bluehost has had more than its share of controversy. The company was accused of censorship prior to being acquired by Endurance International Group. It also was one of the victims of the 2015 Syrian Electronic Army hacking attack. Nonetheless, Bluehost is still one of the biggest hosting companies in the world.
