Google Domains has selected Endurance International Group’s Bluehost brand to provide WordPress web 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” web hosting architecture would offer customers performance, reliability and functionality for running a WordPress site. WordPress currently powers over 25 percent of the web and is one of the most popular online publishing platforms (CMSs) available.
Bluehost’s WordPress web hosting solutions are built on a platform which offers instant WordPress provisioning, automatic upgrades, Jetpack, MOJO Marketplace, as well as “powerful” security features and more.
Many small businesses would 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. It would reflect 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 Hari Ravichandran, CEO and founder of Endurance International Group. “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 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.”
