Endurance International Group Brands

The Endurance International Group (EIG) owns a large number of subsidiary brands, including a substantial number of web hosting companies. At the beginning of 2019, EIG had a market cap of nearly one billion dollars.[1]

Many consumers have a negative view of EIG and complain about problems after EIG’s acquisitions.[2] The relationship between EIG and its subsidiary brands is usually not disclosed conspicuously. As a result, individuals comparison shopping for web hosting service sometimes end up considering multiple EIG-owned brands without realizing the brands share a parent company (see The Web Hosting Confusopoly).

Other business relationships


Methodology notes

I try to list as many distinct, operational web hosting companies owned by the Endurance International Group as possible. I don’t list businesses that transparently resell services offered by one of EIG’s other hosting brands. I also try to avoid listing companies that are no longer in operation. I do not try to comprehensively list all of the non-hosting brands owned by EIG. Instead, I list a small number of companies that I think are especially large, interesting, and/or likely to be encountered by someone purchasing web hosting.

As often as possible, I try to reference content found on either EIG’s website or the website of an EIG-owned brand to verify the relationship between EIG and the subsidiary businesses.
