West Africa’s fastest growing web-hosting brand, HostNowNow now accepts Bitcoin payment for all its services!

A statement from the organisation on Monday, said clients can now pay with Bitcoin for services such as: Shared and Cloud Hosting, Virtual and Dedicated Servers, Domain Registration, Server Management, SiteLock, SSL and other technical-related services.

According to the President & Co-Founder, Olorunsheyi Emmanuel, the company took this stride because of its international appetite to capture the entire African region market before year end; starting with West Africa.

He observed that accepting payments in other local currencies had been a major challenge in the sector, adding that with this unique solution, anyone from any part of the world can now patronise HostNowNow.

“There were HostNowNow clients resident in other countries who couldn’t pay for services, using the traditional payment methods like PayPal or local debit cards. With the Bitcoin, we are now able to cater to all kinds of customers, regardless of their geographical location,” said Olorunsheyi.

Also speaking on the new payment option, the Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder, Ayodeji Niyi-Adesola, noted that HostNowNow had always believed in innovation and bringing the best to the Web Hosting community in West Africa.

He said, “We are proud to introduce Bitcoin as one of our payment options. Bitcoin is becoming more stable than gold and over the years, Bitcoin has proven its validity in the technology marketplace.”

HostNowNow has several hosting innovations to its credit; some of them include: ‘LIMITLESS Hosting’ (in October 2016) and the ‘HostNowNow Empowerment Scheme’ (Giving 1000 women and youth free websites this March at the YEN event).

HostNowNow is determined to always come up with new innovations that will enable it serve clients better and to achieve its goal of becoming the best hosting company in West Africa.
