Tree Centric

TreeCentric is a 'green web hosting provider' that offers shared and dedicated hosting plans.

The shared hosting plan is fairly comprehensive. The pricing is reasonable. The featureset is sufficient for hosting typical PHP based web applications such as blogging or wiki engines.

Their dedicated servers are configured similarly to the shared servers with the same sort of software etc. You do not get root access to the server raising the question of what's the point to getting a dedicated server without root access?

Host a Tree

Glow Host

On shared hosting they make a clear distinction of how many customers are hosted per server for every. Most hosting providers don't do this, so it's a refreshing bit of transparency. Their "semi-dedicated plan" likewise has a clearly specified number of customers per server.

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?

iMountain

They offer a seriously interesting range of hosting packages all of which rely on some kind of cluster technology. Rather than have a single web server assigned to your site, this cluster approach lets traffic bursts be spread across multiple servers. Additionally they offer cache technology such as memcache to help relieve traffic load for web technology that can utilize memcache. The hosting features are comprehensive.

They operate their own data center with their own solar power plant to power the data center.
