While there are countless web hosting providers to choose from, not many of them accept payments from PayPal balance. Most web hosts will sign you up for a subscription, which often requires payment with a credit card or a PayPal account linked to a credit card or bank account.
But what if you have some balance in your PayPal account and don’t currently have a credit card linked to it, can you still pay your web hosting invoice? Yes, there are some hosting companies that allow you to make one-time payments using your PayPal balance.
The following are five of the best web hosts where PayPal balance (as well as credit/debit cards) is an accepted form of payment. I have personally used these services for different websites of mine, and I have had a positive experience with each one of them.
Note: When you choose PayPal as your payment method, you may be automatically redirected to a subscription payment page, which requires an active credit/debit card to be associated with your PP account. In that case, go back to your client area and locate the unpaid invoice. On the invoice page, you should see two PayPal payment buttons: one for a subscription payment, and another for a one-time checkout. You should click on the latter to pay with your PP balance.
Before we give you a list of host that accept PayPal we do want to point out that you can technically use Paypal with any web hosting company by using our Virtual Credit Card service where you send us the funds via PayPal and and we send you a Credit Card number to use with the host. So you can use a PayPal balance to pay for hosting with any web host such as Siteground which is our favorite web host. Click here to get a VCC.
