Hosting.co.uk Adds BitCoin, the World's First Startup Digital Currency, to Available Transaction Methods

Digital economy makes for safer transactions and eliminates hassle of currency exchanges

LUXEMBOURG, Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hosting.co.uk, the UK-based web hosting provider, has announced the addition of BitCoin as an eligible payment method for its services. BitCoin offers numerous advantages over traditional bank transfers or credit card transactions, security and privacy being the most noteworthy. The BitCoin network also simplifies the processing of international sales. Hosting.co.uk hopes to reach even more new clients with this foray into the startup digital economy of digital coins.

BitCoin is a decentralized, person-to-person economy of digital coins. The code that makes the BitCoin network possible is open source, meaning anyone can look behind the scenes and see how everything functions. For users of BitCoin, there are no fees or other hidden costs, as is typical of many other payment methods. From a functionality standpoint, BitCoin transactions are designed to mirror online banking and payment systems, so most users should have no problem navigating within this digital economy.

BitCoin works around the world. As an all-digital network not backed by any government or bank, there are no exchange rates to consider. For merchants, accepting digital coins is a way to make purchases easier for international customers. Because it's also less costly than traditional payment methods, BitCoin offers a chance for businesses to increase profit with no additional investment.

"We understand that many potential customers still shy away from digital payment methods, fearful of identity theft or fraud," said Hosting.co.uk's Frederick Schiwek. "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."

Hosting.co.uk has built a reputation as an affordable and reliable hosting service provider. The company's target market includes everyone from individuals to small- and medium-sized businesses. BitCoin will be most appealing to individual users, especially those located outside of England or continental Europe. Hosting.co.uk offers hosting packages ranging from "Beginner" to "Ultimate." All packages come with a 99.9% uptime guarantee, as well as access to the latest versions of PHP, MySQL and Apache. Clients manage their sites and services via cPanel's graphical user interface.

Recently, Hosting.co.uk partnered with MEGA cloud storage service as an authorized reseller. MEGA offers turn-key data storage with no software to install and the highest level of security. The service has quickly become a frontrunner in the competitive realm of cloud storage solutions. For Hosting.co.uk, this partnership represents another layer of value for current and future clients.

Hosting.co.uk caters to a variety of hosting needs. WordPress, Magento and Drupal are all fully supported. The company also provides support and expertise for the content management system Joomla!. Technical support is naturally a vital aspect of any web hosting provider's services; even a few minutes of downtime can impact the bottom line. Hosting.co.uk takes these concerns seriously, offering 24/7/365 support via phone or live chat.

A Tier IV data center in the midlands of England is the heart and soul of Hosting.co.uk's storage and data transfer capacity. Multiple redundant systems take the sting out of power outages or equipment failures. Now that the company has embraced BitCoin, even more clients will enjoy the benefits of this class-leading infrastructure.

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
