We are proud to introduce Bitcoin as one of our payment options,” Pere Hospital, co-Founder of Cloudways said. “We, here at Cloudways, always strive on being the people’s favorite and it is hard to deny the popularity that bitcoin, a ‘free and open’ currency model, has been able to garner so far. This is what makes this integration a perfect fit for Cloudways and bitcoin.”
Cloudways also keeps everything secure and up to date through automatic OS patches. The company provides access to these and several performance metrics on its console, enabling its clients to monitor all aspects of their cloud hosting in case anything goes wrong.
