AYKsolutions, a web hosting company from Albany, NY, founded in 2004, now supports bitcoin payments in addition to its already extensive list of payment options. This announcement comes after the company was getting a lot of requests recently from clients wanting to make payments with bitcoin.
“We have been getting a lot of requests from our clients to make payments with bitcoin recently,” said Artyom Khmelnitsky, President of AYKsolutions. “Since our goal is to better serve our clients, we have now incorporated this new payment method to go along with our already established ones that include Paypal, credit cards and wire transfer.”
Bitcoin payments, in addition to more standard payment methods, are accepted by AYKsolutions for all of their hosting solutions, including VPS hosting, cloud hosting, dedicated servers and CDN hosting services.
Released as an open source payment method in 2009, Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer payment method, requiring no third party or intermediary party to transact payment. Having no third party transaction service, bitcoin has lower transactional fees than other payment processing services.
Bitcoin transactions are verified using block sequencing in a public distributed virtual ledger called the “block chain”. Users can offer their own computing power not only as a source of validation for past bitcoin transactions stored in the “block chain” but also as a way to earn bitcoins themselves. This process of computing to earn bitcoins is known as “bitcoin mining”.
AYKsolutions offers hosting services including dedicated unmetered hosting. The benefits of unmetered hosting servers would be many, including greatly increased processing power, greater storage capabilities, and higher security. AYKsolutions offers 1gbps and 10gbps unmetered server plans. These dedicated servers can push and pull “great amount of” data at a flat monthly fee per server. Unmetered server hosting plans would be great for file hosts, or those who want to run their own streaming projects.
