History

  • 2001 –  On July 27, 2001, Alex Frakt and Larry Auton launch an index and search site designed to more efficiently track the Morningstar Diehards forum. The site, diehards.org., is independent and has no official ties with Morningstar.
  • 2007 – The lax moderation and technical obsolescence pervading Morningstar’s forums inspires the start-up of a new phpBB forum on February 19, 2007.  A week after its founding, Alex and Larry agree to host and operate the new forum within diehards.org.
  • 2008 –  At the request of a small group of enterprising forum members, Alex and Larry agree to host a new wiki at diehards.org. The  Bogleheads® wiki  debuts on May 13, 2008.
  •  2008 –  On May 31, 2008  Alex and Larry switch default domain names from diehards.org to the more natural bogleheads.org.
  • 2011 –  The John C. Bogle Center for Financial Literacy trademarks Bogleheads®. The registration date is October 11, 2011.
  • 2017 – On February 11, 2017,  Larry Auton moves the bogleheads.org. server to Switch.com.
