First US Managed and Dynamic DNS Provider to Accept Bitcoin

First US Managed and Dynamic DNS Provider to Accept Bitcoin

NoIP.com, the industry leader in free dynamic DNS and managed DNS services, announced they now accept Bitcoin digital currency, further demonstrating their ability and desire to stay at the forefront of digital technologies and trends.

“We are happy to be one of the early adopters of this digital currency. We hope it excites both our domestic customers and our large base of international customers who have been asking for us to accept different forms of payment for years. Bitcoin was a natural choice for us considering our role in the tech world,” stated Dan Durrer, CEO of No-IP.

Bitcoin is the world’s most widely used cryptocurrency and has been pushed into the recent spotlight by many major retailers who are now accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment. Bitcoin is a perfect match for a retailer who does most of its business through online transactions, because there are no transactions fees associated with receiving payments.

“Transaction fees for credit card processing can account for one of the larger fees an online retailer pays. Trying to reduce those costs, while giving our customers something that they have been asking for, is great,” stated Durrer.

No-IP processes the Bitcoin transaction by accepting the Bitcoin transfer and giving a No-IP credit in return. These credits can then be used to purchase any of their services including Managed DNS, Dynamic DNS, email services and even domain registrations.

“We feel that accepting Bitcoin will not only make our customers happy, but also opens us up to an entire market of customers that have never even heard of No-IP. We are excited for what the future holds,” said Durrer.
