HostDime, a global provider of cloud hosting, colocation, dedicated servers, and VPS hosting, is now accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment for its cloud hosting and data center services in the U.S. and Brazil. Shortly, the other HostDime branches in Mexico, UK, Netherlands, India, Colombia, and Hong Kong will also accept the digital currency.
HostDime has partnered with BitPay, to use their platform for Bitcoin transactions. Bitpay’s system is integrated within HostDime’s CORE proprietary system to make it a seamless experience for clients. HostDime’s engineering team implemented this entirely new payment system and had it up in running within days.
“Bitcoin is the currency of the future, and as a company that constantly looks towards the future, we could not wait to be a part of this revolution,” said Filipe Mendes, CEO of HostDime Brazil. HostDime continues to accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, PayPal, Western Union, and wire transfers as payment.
HostDime owns and operates infrastructure and networks in seven countries, with its flagship data center facility in Florida, USA. Currently with a client base of more than 50,000 hosting clients globally across 6 globally dispersed networks, HostDime is one of the largest hosting providers in the world.
HostDime Brazil was started in 2006. The HostDime branch currently operates two Tier 3 data centers in Brazil. The first is in the northern portion of Brazil in Joao Pessoa, the other is a data center in the southern part of the country in Sao Paulo. Offerings include colocation, dedicated servers, and VPS hosting, all physically hosted in Brazil.
