Endurance International Group, Inc. (EIG), formerly BizLand, is a web hosting company. The company was founded in 1997 and is headquartered in Burlington, Massachusetts.[1] It achieved its size by acquiring a large number of smaller companies, which it continues to operate under the original brand names.[2]

In 2011, Endurance was bought from Accel-KKR by Warburg Pincus and GS Capital Partners, for around $975 million.[3] The company went public in October 2013.[4][5]

In April 2014, a major network issue at the data center in Provo, Utah, affected customers of Bluehost, HostMonster and JustHost, and took down many of the dedicated servers owned by HostGator customers.[6][relevant? ]

In March 2015, the company announced an investment in Netherlands-based technology startup AppMachine, acquiring 40% of the company.[7][8]
