Keeping websites online 24/7 is great for uptime and productivity, but less good for the environment. It’s estimated that by 2020 global data centre usage will account for 3% of all CO2 emissions – so as website owners we should take our personal responsibility for contributing towards this.
Inspired by the “We Are Still In” movement in the US in the wake of the US’s planned withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, I wanted to do my bit and provide eco-friendly web hosting here in the UK.
As of September 1st 2017, all of the website I host on behalf of clients are run by 100% renewable energy. And this is truly renewable. No carbon offsets, just 100% renewable electricity from sources like the sun, wind and sea.
I don’t just provide web hosting for my clients’ websites, I manage the whole lot for them too. So if you’re not tech-savvy or don’t wan’t to mess around with all the controls behind the scene – I’m here to help. You get unrivaled features included with each account:
- Cloud hosted email
- Super fast SSD web servers
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Antivirus, firewall and weekly backup
- Upto 2GB storage space
- Technical support via email
- Domain name and renewal management
