In a recent case study, NetHosting explores the history and success of Tumblr, one of the most visited sites on the web.

NetHosting, a top distributor of Cloud Hosting, Virtual Hosting, and Dedicated Hosting solutions has recently released a new case study on the Internet blogging craze, Tumblr.

In early 2007, Tumblr burst onto the online blogging scene and collected over 75,000 new accounts within the first two weeks of its release. As the brainchild of then-nineteen-year-old David Karp, Tumblr was designed to pick up where Twitter left off in the microblogging space.

Tumblr has since released an iPhone app, gained over 33 million users, posted over 18 billion posts, and currently hosts 46 million blogs. A couple of Tumblr’s most famous account holders includes actress Zooey Deschanel and President Barack Obama. Tumblr receives over 500 million page views daily and is ranked as the 22nd most trafficked site in the nation.

“The story of Tumblr is an inspirational one,” stated NetHosting CEO, Lane Livingston. “Business and website owners alike can learn from the example of a young man recognizing a consumer need and filling it, as we strive to do in every aspect of our hosting services at NetHosting.”

NetHosting continues to publish case studies on some of the most popular websites such as YouTube, Reddit, and Pinterest.
