Becoming Bitcoin Friendly
As Bitcoin is now becoming a global phenomenon, many questions have arisen over the practicality of using the cryptocurrency. Online shoppers have become less reluctant to invest in, and indeed spend their Bitcoin as many online stores now accept Bitcoin as a form of payment. Many new startups are keen to have Bitcoin integrated onto their website, anticipating Bitcoin to be the future of e-commerce. In order to have Bitcoin however, a Bitcoin friendly hosting service must first be sought.
Bank on Bitcoin!
There are numerous beneficial aspects to using Bitcoin for businesses that operate online. The existence of the internet has enabled foreign trade to be easier than ever before; however, this has created a fair share of complications - especially for transactions. Within the UK and many other developed countries, we are very conscious with regards to internet safety and security, for instance when we are making a payment online. As an increasing number of developing countries are now online too, many do not have adequate payment systems such as PayPal, and/or their bank cards are not compatible with an online store. Bitcoin essentially eliminates this issue as it is a cryptocurrency that is recognised globally, has the same value worldwide and does not discriminate any country in particular from using Bitcoin as a payment. Bitcoin can resolve online businesses losing out on exchange rate conversions. This effectively means that online business would no longer need to lose out when receiving payments from different currencies and then having to convert the currencies for a fee.
Bitcoin Friendly Hosting Methods
This element is crucial for the success of any Bitcoin accepting business. Which hosting type to choose? Whilst there are an array of options out there such as DNS and free panels, VPS is often the method of choice for users requiring more than a simple website. Why VPS above any alternate method then? Well, VPS (for those who may be unaware of what VPS means) stands for Virtual Private Server. This essentially is a dedicated server, only it runs on virtual hardware instead. However, although a VPS will appear to the user to be a dedicated server, the VPS is actually installed onto the computer hardware and serves multiple websites too. One single computer system can run more than one VPS, each having its own unique operating system that will run hosting software for an individual user. That is common practice when one computer is not used exclusively by one person.
Bitcoin Friendly Hosting Services
What differentiates VPS to standard dedicated servers is the ability of a VPS user to secure the hosting and manage the hosting in general. Whilst this sounds like an unnecessary burden and/or a lot of responsibility, for some people taking matters into their own hands is preferred. Back to Bitcoin, how could you find a service online to meet your hosting requirements? Well, a prime example of a good hosting service would be GigaTux. At GigaTux, your rights to anonymity are taken into account. For that reason Bitcoin has been accepted on their hosting platform. GigaTux ticks all the boxes - it provides VPS packages, respects your right to privacy and most importantly is Bitcoin friendly too. This allows for secure Bitcoin transactions to occur, particularly useful when dealing in significant sums which you would prefer to keep out of the clutches from the likes of hackers (through fraud) or even governments for instance, which is all too common nowadays. With GigaTux, Bitcoin payments incur no additional charges and payment processing is normally registered in under a minute. If that does not convince you that the digital currency revolution is nigh - perhaps nothing will.
