HistoryEdit

Founded in Kaunas, Lithuania in 2004, and was originally named Hosting Media.[2] In 2011, it changed its name to Hostinger after reaching 1-million-user milestone. Back in 2007, a subsidiary 000webhost was established, providing free web hosting worldwide, and in 2008, a US web hosting brand Hosting24 was launched with data centres in Asheville, NC, and UK.[3] After rapid international expansion, another web hosting brand and a company was bootstrapped in Indonesia – Niagahoster.co.id, just before Hostinger International had reached 10-million-user base. In 2014, Hostinger services were localized in 39 countries and a company in Brazil, together with a new brand – weblink.com.br, was established. A new data center and a company in Singapore was launched in October the same year.[4]
