Hostwinds Now Accepts Bitcoin and 14 Other Major Cryptocurrencies

by: Hostwinds Team  /  November 20, 2017


We're excited to announce that Hostwinds is now among the growing number of hosting companies that accept bitcoin payments. We want to give you the opportunity to use the payment method that you're comfortable with and prefer.

Many clients have asked about paying with crypto coins, and we can understand why… Bitcoin payments are normally confirmed very fast, so you aren't waiting around for some other payment method to clear. The transaction fees are generally very low (take that credit card companies!). And if you're outside of the U.S., there's no need to worry about currency conversion or any of that mess.

And guess what? You can pay for your hosting in not only bitcoin, but you can also use 15 other popular coins as well:

  • LTC
  • BCH
  • BLK
  • DASH
  • DCR
  • DGB
  • DOGE
  • ETC
  • ETH
  • GAME
  • POT
  • VTC
  • WAVES
  • XMR
  • XRP

All coin payments are made through a secure, trusted third-party payment processor – CoinPayments.com.

Once you click Complete Order, you'll be given the option to choose which coin you'd like to use:

We're super excited to adapt to emerging technology and add these payment options, and we hope you are too. Are there any other coins that you'd like to see considered for adding to the list?
