(GeeksHosted) has announced it now allows crypto payments. GeeksHosted, which has headquarters in Carcea, Dolj, Romania, has been in operation for six years. During this time the company has built a web hosting ecosystem that is built "for geeks, by geeks". It offers a full suite of hosting-related services including reseller hosting, Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting, and dedicated servers. It also offers domain registration services, web design options, and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) packages. GeeksHosted also specializes in WordPress, Joomla, and Magento hosting options. The company's choice of cryptocurrency for payments is 'Bitcoin'.
Bitcoin is also called a ‘virtual currency’ and has become very well known over recent years. It has moved from the fringes of the Internet to become a mainstream payment system that avoids the need for an intermediary like a bank, or a company like PayPal. The result is payments made with a significant reduction in transfer fees. News of GeeksHosted allowing Bitcoin payments underscores its recent successes. Starting with a team of 10 people, GeeksHosted’s success over the last six years has been spurred by its recent building of brand new state-of-the-art data center facilities.
The company’s move towards accepting crypto payments was based on its success and feedback from customers. "We didn't expect it,“ explained GeeksHosted's Catalin Florica. “Our customers are buying our cheap dedicated servers in large numbers. We can hardly keep up with the orders. It was actually quite a nice surprise."
GeeksHosted’s packages offer a range of features and start at only $1.95 per month with a cPanel package that offers 2GB of SSD disk space, unlimited bandwidth and a single domain with 5 email accounts. These packages go up to the ‘FREEK’ package which is for well-established websites that receive heavy traffic. The package starts at $5.95 per month with 25GB of SSD disk space, unlimited bandwidth and unlimited domains. Do you know of any other companies adopting crypto payments? Let us know the details.
