We're proud to be a 100% green web hosting company.
Only using 100% renewable energy within our London & Newcastle data centres
Running all of our servers 24/7 is perfect for uptime, productivity, storage, speeds etc. But unfortunately it’s less satisfying for our environment. Did you know? It is estimated that ICT will be responsible for 3% of global emissions by 2020 If you think about it that is a massive amount of emissions! 1
Unfortunately, we have known this for many years, just simply buying carbon credits which let’s be honest it almost does nothing to actually lower our planets global CO2 output. It really doesn’t tackle the course of the problems of our world.
Our team approached a company who were fabulously responsive and agreed that something needed to be quickly done about the industry emissions. In only just 3 months later all of our data centres are using 100% renewable energy! 2
Halls Hosting no longer uses carbon offsets, no planting a tree we just only use 100% renewable electricity from the sun, wind and sea.
We've have always chosen technology designed to minimise the impact of our planet. We were very early on adopters for SSD technology, which uses considerably less power for storing our customers data. The last question we had was the power itself. By paying for 100% renewable energy, this is helping the economic incentive for more solar, wind and tidal facilities to be created, reducing the world's dependence on harmful emissions and creating a path to a cleaner and better future for you, your friends, your children and everybody else on this only plant we have got.
This is a dominant milestone for our company and we couldn’t be prouder for what we have done for our planet. Using only 100% renewable energy is unheard of among hosting providers and those that try to be 100% renewable just buys carbon credits or plant trees. Without trying their best for what they can do for our planet.
Your web hosting and services are now delivered by 100% renewable energy, so you can sleep at night knowing that we're not burning fossil fuels to power your site.
