On 21 November 2008, SourceForge announced the availability of Piwik as a hosted application for developers.[7][8]

Piwik was selected SourceForge's Project of the Month for July 2009.[9]

In August 2009, Piwik was named among the best of open source enterprise in InfoWorld's 2009 Bossie Awards.[10]

In December 2012, Piwik started crowdfunding for requested new features.[11]

In September 2013, Matthieu Aubry and Maciej Zawadziński, the CEO of Clearcode, founded Piwik PRO. It provided support and features for the open source Piwik. Clearcode bought out Matthieu Aubry in June 2016 to become the sole owner of Piwik PRO.[12]

In January 2018, Piwik was officially renamed as Matomo.[13]
