BlueHost was originally launched in December of 2003. Since that time the company has grown from its original six-member team to over 230 individuals located in their Orem, UT headquarters. In 2005 HostMonster was spun off from the BlueHost brand to target different markets and help expand the growth of the company. The increased demand for domain registrations from both services led to the creation of the company’s ICANN accredited domain registration service FastDomain.com in 2006.
Moving forward, BlueHost has been taking numerous steps to facilitate future growth including plans to move its headquarters to a new 50,000 sq/ft facility, which will also house a custom 10,000 sq/ft data center. “We want our customers to know we are committed to providing excellent service and support,” stated Heaton. “We are already taking steps to prepare for our future growth in order to stay ahead of the game for years to come. This proactive approach is what defines us as a company.”
