Green Hosting and Our Charity Pledge
Web hosting demands a lot of energy if it is to provide a fully functional 24x7x365 service. Such vast amounts of electricity and the cooling facilities required to keep server temperature controlled, come at a price to the environment. Through green hosting we are attempting to eradicate any negative effects to the planet by using renewable energy whenever available.
We embrace as many energy saving practices as feasibly possible. From the servers we use which utilise less than 27% of the most common servers to implementing air conditioning systems approved by the Energy Star board, we take steps to draw awareness to green hosting.
Our green hosting practices do not just stop with our services. We take great pride in sponsoring the International Tree Foundation. The ITF is a charity that specialises in tree planting schemes in the developing world. Not only does the ITF help with long term employment, but it helps with the reduction of carbon levels. Through our contributions, the ITF can continue to increase the amount of trees planted, thus reducing the amount of carbon further.
These are just some of the methods we apply to reducing our carbon footprint and continue to make efforts to improve our green credentials at every level.
