Slowly but surely, more and more merchants are starting to accept Bitcoin payments. Not just because Bitcoin payments are a cheaper alternative compared to credit cards and Paypal, but also because there seems to be a large enough customer demand. NetDepot is the latest online service to accept Bitcoin payments, so let’s see what they have to offer.
NetDepot – Cloud And Dedicated Servers To Suit Your Needs
Even though Bitcoin is viewed as a niche market, with most of its focus on technology and tech-savvy community, anyone can enjoy the benefits of financial freedom without having to know the specific details. Until that time, more and more online services with a focus on tech-savvy people are accepting Bitcoin payments.
NetDepot is no different in that regard, as this company offers both dedicated and cloud servers to their customers. As you would come to expect from a US-based company like NetDepot, all of their servers are located within the United States as well. And the data centres in New York City, Dallas and Atlanta have now started accepting Bitcoin as a payment method.
The bread and butter of Netdepot’s business model is providing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Ever since the company’s inception in 1995, Netdepot has grown out to be one of the market leaders in terms of corporate and enterprise servicing self-managed servers and cloud servers.
“Bitcoin is a revolutionary, vibrant and growing virtual currency that we fully embrace here at NetDepot.com. Our customers asked for this option, and we delivered. We have a full roadmap ahead of us this next 12 months, and we look forward to delivering to our customers exactly what they want.” – NetDepot President Rodney D. Giles told DigitalMoneyTimes.
What makes NetDepot stand out in the business of cloud and dedicated servers is the fact that this company carries no debts at this time. On top of that, NetDepot is effectively net income profitable, which is a rarity in the world of web servers. Most of this can be attributed to the company’s solid financial management, according to inside sources.
Future Plans For NetDepot And Bitcoin
Based on customer requests, Bitcoin has now been integrated as a payment method for NetDepot’s data centres in NY, Dallas, and Atlanta. But that is not all. The company is on a mission to bring additional data centres online in Chicago and Los Angeles in the near future. At the time of publication, it remained unclear whether or not these additional data centers will accept Bitcoin payments as well.
NetDepot joins major names such as Overstock.com, Expedia, Microsoft, and NewEgg; all of which are major companies that started accepting Bitcoin payments in the past year and a half. It will be interesting to see what kind of numbers NetDepot officials will present to us in a year from now.
