Bitcoin VPS Service Review – BitHost

BitHost is a VPS service provider that operates rather differently from most other providers. In fact, the company is an official DigitalOcean reseller, which means plans are incredibly affordable, and is operated by a company with plenty of experience in the field. But is there anything that can make BitHost stand out?

The BitHost Bitcoin VPS Experience

One advantage that BitHost has over most other cloud and VPS providers is how they resell hosting. Some people could see this as a downside, as the company will be unable to address major issues themselves. At the same time, this also means that people used to working with DigitalOcean services know what to expect.

It is unfortunate that DigitalOcean does not accept Bitcoin payments directly just yet, but that situation could change in the future. Until then, cryptocurrency enthusiasts can enjoy what BitHost has to offer. Their plans start at just US$0.01 per hour, which creates very affordable rates for both novice and experienced users.

As one would expect, the billing plans for BitHost and DigitalOcean are virtually identical. Servers are billed on can hourly basis, although there are monthly plans available as well. Servers can contain between one and 20 cores, and offer up to 640GB of SSD storage. The cheapest plan costs US$7 per month, whereas the “ultra advanced’ package sets you back US$896 every month.

The kicker is how BitHost will not require users to provide any sensitive financial information, whereas that is a necessity when using DigitalOcean directly. All payments are paid for in Bitcoin, and servers will be up and running within a minute after sending the funds over–all in all, a very pleasant experience. Plus, they accept Litecoin and Dogecoin payments as well.

It has to be said, however, that BitHost is slightly more expensive than DigitalOcean. That is only normal, as the company provides a way to pay with Bitcoin. Moreover, they want to hedge against price volatility a bit by charging a small premium fee. It is important to note, however, that once a user funds his or her BitHost balance, the funds cannot be withdrawn. That means it has to be spent on a server package, which is a bit of a shame.

Review-wise, it looks as though BitHost has not received any negative comments from its users to date. Considering that they are reselling DigitalOcean products, this is not entirely surprising. It appears that this service is well worth checking out, but keep in mind that funding an account balance means users will have to spend the Bitcoins as well.
