Who, what and when of the Endurance International Group (EIG)

In this post, we're going to take a closer look at the major conglomerates that have taken over dozens of hosting companies over the past few years - the Endurance International Group - EIG.

EIG, formerly BizLand, is probably the largest provider in the web hosting industry today. Founded in 1996 as a web hosting company, the company is headquartered in Burlington, Massachusetts. In 2011, EIG was acquired by Accel-KKR and GS Capital Partners for an undisclosed price.

At this point, EIG has more than 80 web hosting brands under its umbrella (more on that in a bit) and 4.9 million paying customers from around the world.

* Note: On February 10, 2021, it was announced that Clearlake Capital Group had completed the acquisition of Endurance International Group for approximately USD 3.0 billion (source).

** The subsidiaries, including Bluehost, HostGator, Web.com, etc., now operate under a newly formed company called Newfold Digital.

In short, they are really, really big.

However, looking at the company's previous financial results, the company posted revenues of $ 277.2 million with a net loss of $ 12.3 million for fiscal 2019.

The number of subscribers to the EIG platform as of December 31, 2019 was approximately 4,766 million. compared to approximately 5,217 million subscribers as of June 30, 2017 and approximately 5,011 million
Subscribers at March 31, 2018.

Are EIG's hosting brands any good?

Well, the company has some key pluses - for example, it's rated BBB.

Reason for the ratings from BBB

  • Duration of business operations
  • Volume of complaints filed with BBB for companies of this size.
  • Response to 365 complaints against companies.
  • Resolution of complaints against companies.
  • The BBB has sufficient background information on this business.

However, given that I'm affiliated with a number of hosting brands under their direction, I leave it up to you to decide.

Not all EIG brands are created equal

Like it or not, it's important to understand that not all endurance brands are created equal.

Any acquisition is fraught with risk and uncertainty - and some expect some of the EIG brands to be "left for dead" as the conglomerate continued to grow and invest in other areas.

BlueHost, for example, has evolved under his new leadership. The company has revamped its websites, added new hosting plans to its services, and continues to be one of the top names in the hosting industry. This does not apply to eHost, HostClear and IX Web Hosting - these brands no longer exist today and their users have been transferred to other platforms.

Alternatives: Non-EIG hosting brands
