Hosting.co.uk is one of the leading web hosting companies that offers a range of web hosting plans which are designed for home users and small/medium sized business use. The company announced last week that it will now accept Bitcoins as an eligible payment method for its hosting services in order to expand its client portfolio. Bitcoins are a digital currency which is universally accepted by all countries and it can be used as an alternative to traditional payment methods like Paypal because it doesn’t discriminate against citizenship or location and are often used for political reasons.
Following the WordPress who starts to accept Bitcoins in November, now most of the hosting companies have been adopted the digital currency in the past few months. With the launch of a web hosting affiliate program, Hosting.co.uk has ramped up its customer acquisition efforts this year and in January, Hosting.co.uk has became one of the top resellers of the controversial cloud storage service Mega. Each plans of Hosting.co.uk is packed with useful features, cPanel, generous disk space, and a lot of bandwidth and also provide uptime guarantee of 99.9% which are equipped with the latest versions of PHP, MySQL and Apache.
“We understand that many potential customers still shy away from digital payment methods, fearful of identity theft or fraud,” Hosting.co.uk’s Frederick Schiwek said in a statement. “That’s why Hosting.co.uk has moved forward with Bitcoin as an alternate payment method. Not only is it faster and less costly than most bank-mediated transactions, it’s more secure as well. We expect to see a surge in clients from around the world thanks to the globalizing effects of digital currency.”
