What The New gTLDs Mean To You

If you were to ask a random person on the street for their favorite website, odds are the overwhelming majority would say something that ends in .com. Facebook.com, google.com, twitter.com, reddit.com…you get the idea. For what feels like forever, .com has been the standard for all premier websites throughout the world. It didn’t matter if you were based in the USA, China, India, Ireland, or even the Isle of Man. If you wanted to find a website, you looked for the .com. For better or worse, we may see a major shift in how exactly people look for their favorite websites over the next few years.

Hawk Host and Bitcoin – Our cryptocurrency experiences

About a month ago we decided to start accepting Bitcoin for our services – this blog post will be outlining our experiences thus far and our initial thoughts.

We just recently hit a total of 1 BTC ($450~) worth of transactions for our services paid with Bitcoin exclusively. So far the ride has been smooth minus a few early hiccups including some of our WAF rules being hit from when Coinbase hit our callback URL’s. Luckily we resolved that and everything has been smooth sailing since.

We’ve like everyone else been battling spam for our users utilizing tools like SpamAssassin, custom filtering rules as well as the use of real time blocking lists.  This however was never the most effective solution nor did it give end users the type of control we wanted.  We went to HostingCon last year as well as cPanel Conference with one of our main goals was to find a spam filtering solution that would improve the email service of all our users.

Welcome to the New Age — Hawk Host Now Accepts Bitcoin

Unless you’ve been avoiding main stream news/media for the past few years, you’ve probably heard of Bitcoin at this point. Bitcoin is a digital currency based around a P2P (peer to peer) system and relies on cryptography to bring the whole network together. Despite the folks at Berkshire-Hathaway and Goldman Sachs claiming it’s not an official currency, we don’t have public investors or financial gurus to worry about.  What we have to worry about is our customers, and because of that we’re more than happy to start accepting bitcoins as payment for our hosting services.
