Why you need green hosting
The internet costs a lot to power: over 400 terawatt-hours a year. While an individual website’s footprint is small, it all adds up: the internet is responsible for around 3.7% of global greenhouse gas emissions. That’s similar to the amount produced by the global airline industry.
With our green hosting, you can be assured that your websites are stored on servers that avoid contributing to climate change.
Our sustainable data centres
- 100% RENEWABLE ENERGY – We’ve partnered with renewable energy suppliers to ensure that our web hosting, cooling and network is powered by 100% renewable energy. This is the case in both the UK and US data centres.
WORLD-CLASS EFFICIENCY – Our data centres excel in efficiency: with a PUE (power usage effectiveness) of 1.12. PUE describes how efficiently a data centre uses energy (the lower the better). Most hosts have a PUE of 1.2 or higher. We felt we could do better, so we have a PUE of 1.12. It’s an important figure to note when looking for green hosting.
THE LATEST TECHNOLOGIES – As more efficient technology becomes available, we replace our hardware – but never at a cost to your sites’ performance. We provide the fastest hosting available, without harming the planet.
A green hosting platform
Our team has developed a unique hosting platform, unavailable anywhere else.
Central to this is our autoscaling technology. This ensures that when a website becomes busy, it can be allocated the resources of our entire hosting platform: multiple servers. Unlike other companies, your website isn’t bound to a single server.
Key to our eco-friendly offering is that this also works in reverse. If a website is no longer busy, it will take up fewer resources: processors, RAM and their associated cooling tech. Less resource mean less electricity used, and ultimately, a reduction in harmful emissions.
