It took 8 years for Pastebin.com to surpass 10 million "Active" pastes (not spam or expired pastes). Less than a year later the owners of Pastebin.com tweeted that they had already surpassed the 20 million active pastes mark.
In February 2010, Pastebin.com was sold by the original owner, Paul Dixon, to Jeroen Vader, a Dutch serial Internet entrepreneur. Only a few weeks after the transfer, Mr. Vader had launched a whole new version of the website which he branded V2.0. In early 2011, V3.0 was launched.
