Our cloud wallet now offers a brand new feature. Firstly we have fully web based administration of your bitcoind daemon program. You no longer have to have any knowledge at all of SSH to use our cloud wallet hosting, as of one month ago we launched an online panel with the following features:
- Start/Stop daemon
- Refresh daemon
- Add or remove IPs from the allowed IP list
- Change username/password of the bitcoind daemon for RPC connections
We also are running our own version of bitcoind that has removed from it the ability to generate bitcoins, since a few clients were abusing this, and also has SSL pre-programmed into it, so you don't have to worry about any clients on the server at all using non-SSL connections and compromising the server itself. All clients now have to use SSL no matter what, and our filtering software only allows encrypted outgoing/incoming connections.
Our latest addition to the service is a fully web-based RPC client integrated into the webmin control panel where you administer the rest of your account. This RPC client has the following features:
- Transaction list of incoming/outgoing transactions
- Send bitcoins screen for sending to anyone
- Your address list
- Generate new address button
Basic features yes, but the most basic that most users will need to get started with their online wallet, from it you can do most tasks that you would need to do.
It is also the most secure RPC client since not only does it use HTTPS for connections it connects on localhost, so no transmission is outside of the server to your client. Also it is all automated, it automatically gets your port, user and password from your users bitcoin.conf file, so no having to enter information or worrying about getting it from somewhere un-secure.
So now you can signup for our service then administer and use your wallet all from the web without extra knowledge of how to use SSH or the conf file.
Our next upgrade will include upgrading from 0.3.24 to 0.4 of bitcoin for encrypted wallet's all the time, of course this is taking some time since we are extensively testing the new bitcoin version to make sure there are no major bugs that will mess up wallet's.
