Pay for a Dedicated Server With Bitcoin

In addition to traditional payment methods, ReliableSite now accepts Bitcoin as a form of payment for dedicated servers and other services through our site.

What Is Bitcoin, Anyway? First introduced in 2009, Bitcoin is a form of digital/electronic currency. Unlike U.S. dollars and other forms of currency, Bitcoins aren’t printed or controlled by a specific treasury. Instead, this digital currency is produced by people on their computers through the use of software that solves mathematical equations. Bitcoin was created by a software developer with the goal of having a worldwide currency that would be free of any specific authority, easy to transfer digitally, and allow for low transaction fees.

Redundant Hosting and Why Your Dedicated Server Needs It

If you’re in the market for a dedicated server, there’s a lot to consider before you agree to a contract. One aspect you won’t want to overlook as you shop around for a dedicated server is that of security and reliability. Specifically, when it comes to reliability, you can’t go wrong in selecting a dedicated server provider that has redundant hosting in place. What Is Redundant Hosting? Redundant hosting refers to a dedicated server that’s hosted inside a data center that has back-ups and redundancies in place to keep your server up and running in even the most extreme conditions. For example, if a power supply within your dedicated server’s data center fails, redundant hosting would mean that there would immediately be a back-up power supply in place to prevent any downtime or other problems on your part. Why Redundancies Matter When you decide to go with a dedicated server,

Why Location Matters: Reducing Latency of Your Dedicated Server

Are you in the process of shopping around for your first dedicated server? If so, then you may be understandably feeling a little overwhelmed by the choices available to you. How can you know which option is best for your needs? One important factor to consider as you select a dedicated server is that of its location. After all, the physical location of your server in relation to where you live can have an impact on latency. What is Latency? Latency refers to the amount of time needed for your server to process any kind of request. For example, if somebody is visiting your website (which is hosted on a dedicated server) and they click on a link, higher latency will result in the page taking longer to load. On the other hand, low latency will result in the page and all the objects on it (videos, images, text, etc.)
