Simple Shared

Host a Tree

They are a green web hosting provider who offers a good set of features at good prices. They offer both shared hosting and dedicated servers.

On shared hosting they offer .. instant setup of various web applications like blogging platforms .. email services including mailing lists ..

On dedicated hosting they offer, well, machines. For an extra cost you can hire them to manage the server. An interesting thing is the bandwidth is unmetered, but your machine is on a bandwidth-limited circuit.

Glow Host

A web hosting provider with a comprehensive range of plans (from shared hosting to dedicated servers) and is also carbon neutral.

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.


Online 4 earth

They're a web hosting provider but it's really hard to figure that out. Their front page has a discussion of making the world a better place and the search for ideal solutions etc, but it's hard to get at what they're talking about.

They have a page listing types of green web hosting. They say "100% carbon neutral". But I'm not sure it's a good idea to work with them unless they make it clear what they're doing.

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?
