What we mean by really green hosting is when the server that holds your website is powered by renewable energy. However the term green hosting can actually mean anything from buying carbon credits to paying someone to plant trees and they are all good ideas, we just prefer to cut out the middleman if possible and do the most good directly.
What sorts of renewable energy are involved? We prefer to work with people who use solar PV, hydro, wind and also geothermal when it's based in a country like Iceland with a huge resource of geothermal. We do not consider nuclear energy to be renewable, nor do we consider energy from incineration to be truly renewable.
We offer a variety of green hosting packages, pick the one that suits you best and make it yours. Alternatively you can get in touch, let us know a little about your website's needs and we can customise something for you.
Our fully managed Virtual Private Servers (VPS) are configured specially for WordPress with speed and security the main concerns. This is the best choice for busy sites as a VPS has all the resources dedicated to your site.
If you are just starting or your blog is not very busy then choose one of our shared packages. Shared hosting is where you share the resources of the server with some of our other customers. If your site becomes busier you can switch to a VPS when needed.
WordPress is fully installed and configured with some choice plugins on all packages.
If you have a valid European VAT number other than an Irish one we will deduct the VAT
