BlueHost is growing very fast, and part of that are periodic mass downtimes of various servers, including the PHP5 Box 150. As gleaned from the Excel Sheet below, BlueHost has been growing on an average rate of 400 domains a day. It’s kept this pace more or less since September of 2005, which is when it started publishing hosted domain names. (Past data was obtained from archive.org)
With its 300,000 domains as advertised on its front page, BlueHost may be making as much as $2m a month. Or possibly less, if most accounts happen to use the multiple add-on option, and BlueHost counts this as “another domain”. Matt, do the numbers of 300,000 correspond to domains (including add-ons) or accounts?
