“The man who will use his skill and constructive imagination to see how much he can give for a dollar, instead of how little can he give for a dollar, is bound to succeed.” – Henry Ford (Industrialist)
When we say ‘hacker,’ we think of a hooded man, sitting in front of a screen full of complex coding. The term hacking is mostly associated with criminal activities. However, in this technological age, hackers are being recognized as someone who has an array of skills and IT instincts. This hacker can be anyone, from a teenager to an older adult who possesses the skills.
It doesn’t matter if they are male or female. All that matters is the community of hackers is the knowledge and SKILL to implement them. You can hire an online hacker for any amount of money. But before that, you must know the types of hackers that are out there and the job you need them to do.
What is the Cost of Hiring Hackers?
To hire an online hacker, first, you must determine what you need him (or her) for. Their prices vary based on skills required, risks involved, experience, and preference of the person. These are the generally estimated amounts in USD. However, some hackers prefer bitcoin.

This means that a server or a network is disrupted and (maybe) shut-off to its users for the desired period. The costs depend upon the duration of this attack, which can be in minutes or an entire day.
Price: $5 to $25 an hour. May go up to $400 if you intend to overwhelm the server for the whole day.
