Its been less than a month since I wrote about how we had just reached the 600,000th domain that we were hosting. Now, not quite 30 days later we are a day or two away from 650,000! That is a crazy figure. It doesn’t mean we just added 50,000 domains, that is the number that we have grown by. That includes attrition from customers that didn’t renew or went to another hosting company (Why would anyone ever do that ) That is simply an amazing number of new customers coming on board.
I remember talking with some others in the hosting industry in late July musing on the possibilities of what we could accomplish growth wise in the next twelve months. I thought we could accomplish a 50% growth rate in new signups over the next twelve months. Well here it is 4 months later and we have already increased our signup rate by 40%. That gives me 8 months to increase another 10%! Come on, I can go to every Jazz game, watch all my Prison Break episodes, 24 episdoes, Smallville, and even Desperate Housewives and get 10% by January?
Joking aside, things really are good on the growth side, and this week we will have announcements going out over email to all our users of some cool technical advances we have at Bluehost and Hostmonster and some of the new services that will affect our customer base in the future. Thanks again for sticking with us and for all you do!
