(Gawkwire) – NetHosting, a leading provider of Cloud, Dedicated Server, and Virtual Hosting services since 1994, released a case study revealing hosting information on the top travel booking website, Expedia.com.
NetHosting looked at Expedia.com’s 17-year history. The website was founded in 1996 by Rich Barton as a division of Microsoft. After a brief stint of independence, Expedia was bought by InterActiveCorp. The site rose to number one while expanding throughout the world, to areas in Asia, Europe, Australia, and North America. By 2011, the company had generated $1 billion in revenue. It has been voted the best travel agency in the world, and is also the largest.
Expedia’s website allows users to look up flights, hotels, car rentals, cruises, and other vacation amenities. Customers save money when they book more than one travel accommodation at a time. Currently, the site can boast 40 million visitors each month.
"We were interested in Expedia because it has become such an American staple," comments NetHosting CEO Lane Livingston. "Expedia took advantage of the digital revolution by putting a primarily person-to-person business online. Here at NetHosting, we admire that kind of forward thinking."
In addition to its Expedia Case Study, NetHosting has also investigated travel site Airbnb, and Groupon, an Expedia partner and daily deals site.
