There is no doubt the digital world is growing at a rapid pace. We are daily tight to monitors for countless reasons, online communication, working needs, entertainment, e-shopping, and many more. While there are many benefits of an ever-increasing digital world, one of the biggest cons is the issue of security. After all, we cannot actually see where our data is going or who may be watching our digital footprint.
Even the economy becomes increasingly digital, so the growing cyber-criminal activity is threatening most companies’ ability to manage their business safely. The COVID-19 made this question of security even more pressing. Many people now working from home, accessing corporate files, shared files and folders, represent security risks requiring professional solutions.
The cyber-crime threat is with COVID-19 pandemic exponentially growing. Expressions like malware and ransomware attacks have been in the news since 2020. Ransomware is a type of malware restricting users from accessing their data and demanding ransom payment (mostly in Bitcoin) in order to regain access. Any data, especially personal information, payment methods, corporate data, customer e-mails, are at high risk of exposed.
You probably have heard stories of online attacks on large companies (Colonial Pipeline Company, Buffalo Public Schools, etc.), organisations, or government agencies, or you as an individual may have experienced a ransomware attack on your own. These days, hackers can target any profitable subject or company who is potentially capable of paying a ransom.
But how to secure your online data? One of the key elements is where your data is nested. You have heard of many hosting solutions, but have you heard of anonymous bitcoin hosting?
Anonymous hosting offers anonymous VPS – virtual private servers in various data centre locations.
One of the main benefits of VPS is the user’s complete anonymity. The use of Bitcoin to pay for web hosting will keep your real identity hidden. Not even e-mail verification or phone number is needed when registering.
Still unsure? Let’s dive deeper.
A VPS server is a cloud-based hosting solution that provides the security expected from a single external server in a virtual space. This means you no longer need masses of space or a huge budget to keep your digital data secure.
A server is like a really powerful computer that holds all the data required for website hosting. This then allows people to search for the domain and view that website as the designer intended. Before virtual servers came into play, it was common practice to have a big external drive that would look after all this information. This was a costly and space-intensive practice.
Virtual servers now allow for users to have a piece of the ‘cloud’ pie. All of your data needs in a big virtual space. No need for any physical servers or storage space. This also allows for a huge increase in the amount of data that can be stored for a much smaller price.
The ‘P’ in VPS is the private element of all this. While shared hosting solutions are co-hosted using the same server space and resources, VPS hosting provides users with designated performance and storage. This can provide a much quicker service, as with shared hosting. If someone has a large service website, the server may slow down your site. A private server only serves you, so you no longer have to worry about the slow response, and you can rest easy knowing no data is being shared.
Bitcoin virtual private servers are much easier to manage, are accessible wherever you are, and allow you to run any online project anonymously.
A VPS gives you much more control than a shared server, and you don’t need to worry about another user uploading a problematic application that could slow down your site load. You can manage what applications are being used and ensure your site runs smoothly. This separation also provides you with that higher level of security. Nobody else can access the data held in your private VPS, so the chances of a data breach are greatly reduced.
