How were you able to determine it is owned by Bluehost and what is the relevance.
From what I know it is not owned by Bluehost. Perhaps by a former Bluehost employee but it would be a big stretch to say they are owned by Bluehost.

That just tells us that a domain name is registered with Bluehost.com and has private whois data enabled.

BetterLinux is run by Matt Heaton, former CEO of Bluehost.com. It is not owned by Bluehost.

google Matt Heaton shows he is still Bluehost CEO and bluehost, hostmonster and therefore betterlinux are owned by Endurance International Group

You must be using a different Google than I am.
Nothing indicates that Matt is still with Bluehost.

well i have googles, used yahoo etc. and stil shows Matt as CEO of Bluehosat. also just look at betterlinus and the only sites that seem to be kisted using it are Bluehost, Hostmonster and Endurance International Group, which seems strange as these are sites that are owned by Endurance International Group, so therefore betterlinux is part of Bluehost which are owned by Endurance International Group. I bet we will soon see another site (hostgator) listed on betterlinux as if the rumors are correct Endurance International Group have bought out Hostgator.

You should give Dan Handy a call then and tell him he is not the actual CEO of Bluehost.

No. It does not.
Whois information tells you absolutely ZERO about the company other than who they registered their domain name with.

thats because they have privacy enabkles, which even makes it more suspicious as what are they hiding.

as whois details are suppose to tell who a domain is registered with and who owns the domain along with the owners email address and the nameservers of the domain

Irrelevant.
You claimed that this company was owned by Bluehost. It clearly is not.

To suspect that someone is hiding something is a bit silly.

It is not silly in the hosting industry, hiding their details in whois raises suspicions and how do you know where they are actually based, yes you will know where the domain is registered and possibly where the servers are located, but not the true owner or location of the site owner.

Ok. Whatever bud.
You made a claim that was clearly false. You can continue to dance around it all you like but the fact remains. What you could have done was just admit your error and stop bringing irrelevant issues into the matter.
