SEATTLE, WA – American web hosting provider Hostwinds has announced that it will accept payments in Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) and five other cryptocurrencies. In the midst of cryptocurrency’s entry into the mainstream market, Hostwinds becomes one of many online merchants to adopt BCD payments.
Hostwinds provides its customers with fast and reliable web hosting, customizable cloud servers, virtual private server hosting, and dedicated servers. Known for its excellent service, Hostwinds was named Best Hosting Service of 2018 by PCMag.com, which described it as “one of the most flexible and feature rich web hosts we’ve tested”.
By accepting cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin Diamond (BCD), Bitcoin (BTC), Dash, Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Zcoin (XZC), Hostwinds is making its hosting services more accessible and opening its doors to new customers globally.
“As a web hosting company focusing on tech-savvy clients, it is important for us to stay ahead of the curve and take advantage of new innovations,” said owner Peter Holden. “Hostwinds adoption of cryptocurrency gives our customers a universal alternative payment method that is fast, secure, and reliable.”
Cryptocurrency payments provide higher efficiency for both merchants and customers. Transactions can be verified in a matter of seconds at just a fraction of the fees charged by credit card processors, making a more seamless shopping experience. Merchants are also protected from costly chargebacks and high conversion fees, increasing their profit margins.
Over the past several years, cryptocurrency has emerged as the next evolution of currency, thanks to its convenience, cost-effectiveness and decentralization. Designed as a means of transaction as peer-to-peer electronic cash, it matches the functionality of traditional fiat currency and goes beyond in efficiency, accessibility and security. Bitcoin launched in 2009 as the first cryptocurrency, and hundreds of others have since followed.
Founded in 2010, Hostwinds began changing the face of the hosting industry from the start with a set of new standards: offering quality hosting services at a reasonable price. Their dedicated staff ensures that their clients feel respected, satisfied, and cared for at all times. The hosting company takes pride in their remarkable customer service and was recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the 500 fastest-growing private companies.
