British website hosting provider Hosting.co.uk has announced that it now accepts more than 50 digital currencies. Hosting.co.uk was established in 2012 and has headquarters in London, United Kingdom. The company offers a range of hosting options offered at “an affordable price”. These include traditional web hosting alongside reseller, VPS and dedicated hosting. The company also offers cPanel-based solutions alongside website tools like online computer backup. The company was in the news earlier this year for accepting SEPA payments. The more than 50 digital currencies it accepts as payment now include Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin.
Digital currencies - also known as ‘crypto-currencies’ - have become mainstream over recent years and are more popular as a means of payment. Numerous web hosts now accept a range of crypto-currency payments. Hosting.co.uk was one of the UK’s early adopters, accepting them as early as 2013. The recent increased popularity of digital currencies spurred Hosting.co.uk move to adopt payment for several types of currency.
"We're very proud of our role as a trailblazer in providing Web Hosting solutions and allied services to websites,” explained Frederick Schiwek, Hosting.co.uk’s CEO. “So, when bitcoins turned into a payment option, in addition to customary payments, we openly welcomed the innovation. Many Hosting.co.uk clients share our trust in bitcoins and other crypto-currencies. This payment method is not new to us and we are accustomed to dealing with transactions of this nature," added Mr. Schiwek.
