HistoryEdit

Hostinger was founded in 2004 as Hosting Media.[6]

In 2007, Hosting Media’s paid hosting offer was joined by a free web hosting service when the company founded 000webhost.[7]

In 2021 a group of investors led by German entrepreneurs Jochen Berger and Thomas Strohe invested in Hostinger and acquired 31% of Hostinger’s shares.[8]

In 2008, the company launched Hosting24, a cPanel-based web hosting brand, in the United States. The data centers were located in Asheville, North Carolina, and the United Kingdom.[9]

In 2011, Arnas Stuopelis joined the company as CEO.[10] In the same year Hosting Media rebranded to Hostinger.[11]

In 2013, Hostinger launched its subsidiary Niagahoster in Indonesia. It became one of the first hosting providers to offer tier-4 data centers.[12]

In 2014, the company launched a Brazilian subsidiary, Weblink.[13]

In 2019, Hostinger introduced a no-code, drag-and-drop website builder. Launched as a subsidiary under the name Zyro, the builder is supported by Hostinger’s hosting infrastructure and is aimed at small to medium-sized enterprises.[14]

In 2021, private equity company ConHostinger acquired an approximately 31% controlling stake in Hostinger with the goal of enhancing the growth of the company.[15]
