dreamhost.com - Is an almost full service web hosting provider. Their core competency is shared hosting but they do offer a dedicated hosting arrangement, but prevent you from having root access to your "dedicated" server.

I use Dreamhost for this site (and a couple others) plus because they offer tremendous data storage limits, my Dreamhost account serves as an offsite backup of my personal files.

noco hosting

They offer a set of comprehensive shared hosting plans. The feature set provided is fairly complete and useful for shared hosting of web applications. However the usage limits are fairly tight. They do explain that "most of you don't need 400gb of disk space" which may be true but at the same time their largest hosting plan only offers 5gb of disk space and 10 gb of bandwidth. That isn't much especially in todays era of large multimedia files. A podcast for example could easily outstrip those limits, and this is their largest plan?

They are carbon neutral by having a partnership with the International Tree Foundation where ITF does tree plantings and they are able to claim carbon credits. Their announcement doesn't make it clear whether the agreement offsets all carbon footprint, or just part of it. Regardless of how much offset they're buying, they are doing more than the ones who don't even think about this issue.
