Where to buy a VPS with bitcoin

Where to buy VPS with Bitcoin?

There is a wide selection of VPS’s that you can choose from on the Internet. Cheap VPS’s, offshore VPS’s, American-based VPS’s, Windows VPS’s, the list is endless. Thus, it comes as no surprise that there are also Bitcoin VPS’s available.

Not only are there many VPS providers that support Bitcoin as a payment gateway, there are also hosts that only support Bitcoin, known as bitcoin hosting providers. In this list, we’ll look at both types of hosts.

Before we list 10 providers where you can buy a VPS with bitcoin, let’s briefly go over why someone would prefer to pay with Bitcoin over, let’s say, PayPal.

1) It’s easy to set up

You can open account, known as a ‘Bitcoin Wallet’ or simply ‘Wallet’ without having to register with any of your personal details. The application is called Bitcoin Core, and it is base program of Bitcoin.

It’s free, and you can download from the official website: https://bitcoin.org/nl/download

We highly suggest avoiding any online interfaces to store your Bitcoin.

You’ll have to wait until it is completely synchronized, which can take a few days.

2) There are no real fees

Sending and receiving Bitcoin payments using Bitcoin core is done without any additional fees. If you compare that with the 5% fee that you have to pay using PayPal, you quickly realize the wonder that is Bitcoin.

3) It helps maintaining your anonymity

Since you are not required to give any personal information, nobody really knows who exactly is paying and what for they are paying it. Blockchain.info keeps a log of all the transactions made, but that’s really it when it comes to logging.

4) Bitcoin’s value fluctuates a lot

Bitcoin’s value changes significantly every day, and that there have been cases where it shot up 10% in a single day, making everywhere who had Bitcoin 10% richer. Some thus see holding Bitcoin as an investment similar to how someone would have shares of a company.

Now that we’ve discussed the benefits of Bitcoin, let’s look at the best hosts where you can buy a VPS with Bitcoin:

Nr. 11 – Hostigation.com

Hostigation Logo

Hostigation is an American host founded in 2006 that never really gained much popularity over the past decade. They offer their services in Charlotte NC and Los Angeles CA. Aside from their VPS’s, Hostigation offers backup services, dedicated servers, shared hosting, SSL certificates and reseller plans.

For the rest, they’re quite secretive about who they are and what differentiates them from other hosts. We’ll have a look at their KVM VPS’s as it is the most popular choice:

Cheapest Bitcoin VPS:
KVM 128
128MB RAM
10GB Disk Space
500GB Bandwidth
1 CPU
$30/year

More info

Most expensive Bitcoin VPS:
KVM 2048
2GB RAM
50GB Disk Space
2000GB Bandwidth
4 CPU
$30/month

More info

Final remarks:
Hostigation offers a narrow variety of VPS’s. Not only is the selection limited, their VPS’s range from very weak to weak, which explains why they have never gained much popularity. Furthermore, the prices are too high. Even for American standards.

Nr. 10 – MonoVM.com

MonoVM Logo

MonoVM is a popular host that started back in 2012. They’ve grown to offer a wide selection of hosting services in various countries. They offer windows VPS’s, linux VPS’s, dedicated servers, colocation, domain registration, web hosting, reseller hosting and SSL certificates. Their locations include USA, Netherlands, England, Lithuania, and Canada.

Cheapest Bitcoin VPS:
Title: Linux VPS 512
CPU: 1 Core
Memory: 512MB Dedicated
HDD: 20GB
Bandwidth: Unlimited
Internet Port: 1 Gbit/s

Most expensive Bitcoin VPS:

CPU: 2 Core
Memory: 4096MB Dedicated
HDD: 150GB
Bandwidth: Unlimited
Internet Port: 1 Gbit/s
IP: 1 Free
Full Root Access
$64.99/month

More info

Final remarks:
MonoVM’s VPS’s are pricey. You can get most plans for half the price and with SSD disks. Regardless, they offer a wide range of locations, which can be great for those who need VPS’s in specific countries.

Nr. 9 – Superbithost.com

SuperBitHost.com

Superbithost is a young hosting provider from 2013 that primarily focuses on reselling hosting, VPS and dedicated servers from around the world. They currently sell from have 26 locations. We’ll look at their KVM VPS’s from Holland:

Cheapest Bitcoin VPS:
20GB Web Space
1GB Memory
1000GB Bandwidth
600Mhz CPU
1 dedicated IP
$25.00/month

More info

Most expensive Bitcoin VPS:
100GB Web Space
4GB Memory
2000GB Bandwidth
1600Mhz CPU
1 dedicated IP
$50.00/month

More info

Final remarks:
Superbithost’s VPS plans are overpriced, which is understandable given that they resell VPS’s and they are looking to make a profit as well. Furthermore, aside from Bitcoin, Superbithost also accepts Litecoin, which is a less popular, but reliable alternative cryptocurrency to BTC.

Nr. 8 – BuyVM.net

BuyVM.net

BuyVM is a popular Canadian host that was established in 2010. They specialize in offering VPS’s only and their services include OpenVZ VPS, KVM VPS, Storage VPS, Windows VPS, and anycast VPS. Their locations for their VPS’s include Las Vegas, New Jersey and Luxembourg. We’ll have a closer look at their KVM VPS’s:

Cheapest Bitcoin VPS:
KVM 128
1 Core @ 2.00+ GHz
128 MB Memory
15 GB SATA Storage
500 GB Bandwidth
1 IPv4 Address
$25.00/year

More info

Most expensive Bitcoin VPS:
KVM 4000
8 Cores @ 2.00+ Ghz
4GB Memory
200GB SATA Storage
15TB @ 1000Mbps
1 IPv4 Address
$80.00/month

More info

Final remarks:
$25.00/year is an excellent price, until you realize that you only receive 128MB RAM. That’s almost ten times less than the standard 1GB RAM you can get these days for 8 bucks. I even know some hosts that offer 128MB for a dollar a month. So all in all, their VPS’s are overpriced, which is why they are positioned seventh on this list.

Nr. 7 – Qhoster.com

Qhoster.com

Qhoster, a popular name in the hosting industry, began back in 2004. With more than a decade of experience, Qhoster has grown to 13 locations worldwide. Some of these locations include UK, USA, Mexico, Singapore, France, Lithuana and France. Not only do they have many locations, they also offer many different types of hosting services. Cpanel web hosting, cPanel reseller hosting, linux VPS, Windows VPS, dedicated servers and domains are among those services.

Cheapest Bitcoin VPS:
Full Root Access
1 CPU Core (Intel Xeon)
1 GB Memory
40 GB Disk Space
1 TB Monthly Bandwidth
1 GBit/s Internet Port
1 IP (additional 10 IPs)
IPv6 included
$14.95/month

More info

Most expensive Bitcoin VPS:
Full Root Access

4 GB Memory
160 GB Disk Space
4 TB Monthly Bandwidth
1 GBit/s Internet Port
1 IP (additional 40 IPs)
IPv6 included
$59.95/month

More info

Final remarks:
These VPS’s use OpenVZ virtualization, which is usually a second choice. KVM virtualization being the first choice for most experienced VPS users. Also, their VPS’s are not using SSD drives, which shows how Qhoster employs cost-saving features to maximize their margin. Another unusual choice is that their biggest VPS only has 4GB memory, while the norm by other providers is usually 32GB or even 64GB.

Nr. 6 – SecureDragon.net

SecureDragon.net

SecureDragon.net is virtually unknown by the hosting community. Established in 2010, SecureDragon offers VPS’s and shared hosting only. Their servers are located in Tampa, Florida and it is possible to colocate with them. These are their KVM VPS’s:

Cheapest Bitcoin VPS:
Title: K512
512MB RAM
25GB Storage
1000GB Bandwidth
Intel Xeon CPU 2 Core
1 IPv4 address/16 IPv6 addresses
$12.99/month

More info

Most expensive Bitcoin VPS:
Title: K4096
4GB RAM
200GB Storage
2500GB Bandwidth
Intel Xeon CPU 4 Core
1 IPv4 address
$96.99/month

More info

Final remarks:
A big plus by SecureDragon is that they offer IPv6 addresses for their VPS’s. Having said that, their VPS’s are slightly overpriced, but it should be an excellent option if you are looking to host in the Floridian region.

Nr. 5 – LegionBox.com

LegionBox.com

LegionBox began in 2014 by a team of Russian tech administrators. Their head office is located in Moscow, and they can be contacted directly on their personal phone numbers. Their commitment to a quality service can be felt easily. For example, they offer support for free with their virtual servers and dedicated servers.

Cheapest Bitcoin VPS:
Title: XenVps0.5
OS: Linux
Virtualization: XEN
CPU: 1хE5-2620
RAM: 0.5 GB
Disk Space: 15 GB
Bandwidth: Unmetered
Price: $7.00/month

More info

Most expensive Bitcoin VPS:
Title: XenVPS16
OS: Linux
Virtualization: XEN
CPU: 4хE5-2620
RAM: 16 GB
Disk Space: 150 GB
Bandwidth: Unmetered
Price: $150.00/month

More info

Final remarks:
Their unmetered bandwidth is not truly unmetered. For their Swiss and German location, the limit is just 2 and 3 Terabyte respectively. Far from unmetered. For their remaining locations, which are Los Angeles and Russia, the bandwidth is unmetered, but you can still expect a bandwidth limit like 50Mbps or even lower. It is best to contact them first and ask for Mbps guarantees.

Nr. 4 – Bithost.io

Bithost.io

BitHost.io – credit for their original name – started in 2014. What differentiates Bithost.io from other hosting providers is that they do not only offer a monthly pricing model, but also an hourly pricing model. So for example, their 512MB VPS costs $7.00/month, but you can also buy it for $0.01/hour. This is great for if you want to use a VPS for a much shorter period of time than one month.

Cheapest Bitcoin VPS:
Memory: 512MB
Core: 1 Core
Disk Space: 20GB SSD
Traffic: 1TB/month
Monthly Price: $7.00
Hourly Price: $0.01

More info

Most expensive Bitcoin VPS:
Memory: 64GB
Core: 20 Core
Disk Space: 640GB SSD
Traffic: 9TB/month
Monthly Price: $896
Hourly Price: $1.33

More info

Final remarks:
Their VPS’s are relatively well priced, but you can get them for cheaper. Also, they are resellers of Digital Ocean and BitHost.io is run by a single person named Scott Robertson. He offers Digital Ocean packages for a higher price (40% higher) and explains that this increase is caused by the USD to BTC conversion. To keep it short, that’s not how it works. Once Digital Ocean begins accepting Bitcoin, BitHost.io’s entire business becomes obsolete.

Nr. 3 – THCServers.com

THCServers.com

THCServers gained massive popularity very quickly since their launch in 2013. What started with two American guys has grown to a team of 16 professionals. They have their own servers in 6 locations: Chicago IL, Montreal CA, Pas de Calais FR, Nurenberg DE, Craiova RO and Singapore SG. Let’s look at their linux VPS’s:
