Our Website Hosting Service

3 July 2020

The global carbon footprint of the world wide web is calculated to exceed that of the aviation sector. It's good to know therefore that our website hosting provider, Cloudabove, based in Cornwall, is powered by renewable energy.

Here's what the company has told us:

'The digital world has an enormous impact on our world and at cloudabove we are conscious of the impact that providing our hosting services has. That's why we've taken measures to ensure this impact is absolutely minimised.

Your hosting is powered by renewable energy

Our office in Cornwall and our two main data centres in London and Manchester are powered by 100% renewable energy from the folks at Ecotricity and follow the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres which focuses on energy efficient design & operation.

A tree for you and every order from now on

We've partnered with Offset Earth to help us continue reducing our impact on the environment and to kick start our contribution, we've planted a tree for every single customer. Your tree is being planted in Madagascar to be precise!  

Going forward, we'll be planting up to twenty trees for every domain or hosting order, as well as contributing to other ecological and humanitarian projects. You can keep an eye on our stats and learn more about the brilliant people at Offset Earth on our profile page.'

It all helps.
