A customer’s view on Green Hosting

13th Sep 2017

We 'met' sustainable lifestyle blogger Francesca from Ethical Unicorn via the online #EthicalHour Network this summer. We had been talking about our wind powered website hosting, answering questions and generally finding out that still even lots of environmentally aware folks do not know of the pollution caused by web hosting powered by fossil fuels. We were delighted when Francesca signed up to one of our hosting plans and hired us to help her switch from her old WordPress hosted platform to our Green Hosting server and get her set up with a new theme.  

I switched to Green Hosting a week ago now, and I honestly feel it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Once her new website was up and running Francesca wrote about what she learned about the website hosting industry, how there is an environmentally friendly alternative and her experience on working with us. Read Francesca's article 'The Environmental Impact Of Web Hosting, And Why I Switched To Wind Power'.

We get lots of lovely feedback from our clients but we thought this was particularly great, detailing Francesca's initial decision to switch right through to our customer service. Take a look at our clients page to see some of the other websites hosted with us.

Transfer your website to Green Hosting with our help

1st Jul 2017

Wind powered website hostingHosting your website on servers powered by 100% renewable energy is a real way of ensuring your business or organisation is helping the environment.

You might wonder what impact that can really make but second to the aviation industry, the powering of datacentres and cloud computing run on fossil fuels is reported to be the largest global contributor to carbon emissions. That is a big deal!

Let us help you switch to wind power

Don't be put off by the idea that switching from your old website host to Green Hosting is complicated and disruptive, it needn't be. We can help you make a smooth transition to us.

All you need to do is add the 'Website Transfer Service' when you sign up to one of our hosting plans. The best part is that our transfer service isn't expensive, it's just a one-off fee of £25.

If you have a WordPress website we can transfer your site and provide extra security features to help protect it from hackers.

If you'd like to know more please get in touch.

Let us boost your WordPress security

11th Feb 2016

New Green Hosting customers can add the option of letting us handle some essential security measures on their WordPress website as part of their hosting account set-up. If you would like us to do this, just choose to add the WordPress security steps when you sign-up.

We will install WordPress for you at your hosting account and:
- Create a non 'admin' username
- Limit log-in attempts
- Rename the log-in URL
- Re-route the standard log-in URL to a 403 forbidden page
- Install 'Plugin Vulnerabilities'
- Install WordFence

Website owners can of course do this themselves and we strongly suggest that anyone with a self-hosted WordPress website regularly updates their installation and plug-ins as well as takes care of other security issues.

For our existing Green Hosting customers, if you would like help with this please contact us.
