UN scientists released their biggest ever report on climate change, covering how global warming is on a path to change how we live in the world in the next few decades. The report goes far enough to state that “it is unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, oceans and land”.
The report goes on to recommend that we cut greenhouse gas emissions as much as we possibly can in order to regulate temperatures that have risen to unprecedented levels. There are more and more instances every year of examples where climate change is “already affecting many weather and climate extremes in every region across the globe”, such as forest fires and droughts.
Very fast and dramatic reductions to green gas emissions are needed and we can all play a part in helping towards this. Here at DOWO, we take our environmental footprint seriously and encourage the businesses we work with to do so too, so that’s why we offer Green Hosting.
What is Green Hosting?
The internet has exploded in use over the last couple of decades and it is entwined in every part of our personal and professional lives. But the internet itself also uses lots of electricity to power it, with 10% of the world’s electricity consumption being attributed to keeping the internet running! Companies require servers to deliver information to its network of computers and share resources, but a lot of fossil fuels can be used to generate electricity to power servers, data stores and networking equipment and keep them cool.
We use 100% green, renewable energy to power our functional servers, Ofgem regulated 100% renewable energy from E.ON to be precise, which is a UK renewable generator that powers our data centre. Our servers are in a data centre that limits the electricity it uses as much as possible, so hot air is extracted from the building and water-based chillers are used to cool servers and supplement the cooling systems. We’re committed to offsetting more carbon than we consume every single month and being carbon negative, we can help you to be too!
So, if you choose to host with us you’ll receive super-fast web hosting because we place far fewer accounts per server than most hosts and this means great loading speed and performance, aswell as being safe in the knowledge that you’re already reducing your company’s carbon footprint.
Not only that but if you host with us then we plant a tree for every invoice paid, as we’re part of a global reforestation effort, you can check out our effort so far here and add to it if you choose to go greener with us.
Our hosting packagers are cost-efficient, as well as energy efficient and we also have a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee, so you may cancel at any time within the first 30 days and we’ll give you your money back.
