Endurance International Group (NASDAQ: EIGI), today announced that Google Domains (GOOG) has selected its Bluehost brand to provide WordPress hosting solutions to new and existing customers. Google Domains customers can now also link their domains and create new accounts from Bluehost’s website.
Bluehost’s unique architecture offers customers proven performance, reliability and functionality for running a WordPress site, which is increasingly important as WordPress currently powers over 25 percent of the web and is the most popular online publishing platform available.
In fact, many small businesses rely on WordPress to run their businesses and a recent SMB Trust Index cited WordPress as the most trusted brand for small businesses. This new Bluehost offering extends the relationship between Endurance and Google and reflects both companies’ joint efforts to get small businesses online and help them grow.
“Bluehost and Endurance have worked closely with WordPress.com’s parent company, Automattic, for years now to ensure our web hosting platform would seamlessly run WordPress websites,” said Endurance CEO & Founder, Hari Ravichandran. “We’re honored to begin working with Google Domains to make it easier for small business customers to get online and manage their online presence.”
Bluehost’s WordPress solutions are built on an innovative platform which offers instant WordPress provisioning, automatic upgrades, Jetpack, MOJO Marketplace, as well as powerful security features and more.
Bluehost hosts over 2 million WordPress websites, supports full-time WordPress Core developers on staff and has been recommended by WordPress.org since 2005. Bluehost experts are available to offer customers 24/7 WordPress support, one-click installation and access to custom WordPress tools to scale their website presence as they grow.
“We have a long-standing partnership with Bluehost and we work closely with them to ensure WordPress users’ success, and to give back to the open source community,” said Catherine Stewart, VP of Business Wrangling at Automattic. “Now with Bluehost teaming up with Google Domains, we hope to welcome more WordPress users to the web and to continue to help more small businesses get online.”
