It should be bitcoins all the way down! Plus, it supports the bitcoin economy.

I don't even know who/what finances this host.

I agree it would be nice to have it on a bitcoin hosting. Smiley But that's up to the person paying for it to decide anyway.

You mean a host that takes bitcoins?

How many are there now?

I counted ten that could host bitcoin.org. I am most familiar with Kalyhost and highly recommend the services because I used it myself.

My opinion is that none of visitors care. Just use the one that's most reliable. I guess so far uptime is good and I think that:

P1 < P2 * PF

P1 - number of people that will care&know about the hosting provider
P2 - number of people that will care&know about this site being down
PF - probability of site going down because of using some fresh and not necessary reliable hosting provider


Variance is a bitch!

Yeah I suppose.
I like the idea of it though and it's pretty symbolic.

Maybe if someone sets a mirror up or something.

But it's just a nice idea for the bitcoin project itself to pay for everything in bitcoin!

It seems like should be whenever reasonably possible. If it puts the site in serious risk of downtime it's not worth it though.
I wouldn't expect the marketing director of Pepsi to drink Coke.

I went to their website and couldn't find sufficient information on their VPS offering to determine whether I wanted to go anywhere near it.

In any case, what I WANT to do is to set up my own VPS provider -- the right way (OpenVZ is horrible for a variety of reasons) -- and accept Bitcoin exclusively. The market, unfortunately, is not yet large enough for this.

Just to be clear: I do agree that is a very nice idea. I just don't think it's rational in terms of bitcoin promotion.

Whois for bitcoin.org says it is currently hosted on rackspace. Great solution would be of course to make some well known provider like this to accept bitcoins. It could be great promotion for them as bitcoin is becoming popular. But I used to be running a hosting company, and as bad as it sounds on this forum - I would not accept bitcoins. The reason is: police have been contacting me a few times, and their most reliable link to know who's behind some site is a payment that he made for hosting. So I would be afraid about this - if you cannot tell who's account is it on your server, maybe it was you that done this bad thing. Of course you take personal information from person that is buying account, and if it turns out to be fake, it's somebody's else crime to give you fake data not yours to accept it, you could also ask for some document scan for registration or whatever, I'm just saying that I think it's harder for such service providers to accept bitcoins than it is for let's say online stores..

Bitcoin.it is already hosted on Kalyhost. It's safer to have bitcoin.org on another host so that both sites won't go down in case of server failure or some other factor.

Makes complete sense. I'm going to use Kalyhost next time I need hosting (soon I think) because they accept BTC.
