Switching to greener web hosting – a huge step towards making a difference

In an ever-developing digital world, there are millions of active websites online worldwide. From simple plain text to everything available at the tap of a button, websites have evolved to provide us with the ease of shopping online, participating in live auctions, watching tutorials, working collaboratively, and much more, all from the comfort of our homes. But this has come at a cost.

There is no denying that our digital-led lifestyles are having a negative impact on the environment through the huge increase in energy usage. Which is why, high-speed web hosting provider, HA, based in North Yorkshire, are taking a responsible review of how their power is generated.

To ensure they minimise the effect on the wider environment, HA are assessing all parts of the organisation’s infrastructure to ensure they reduce their carbon footprint as much as possible.

From January 2022, the team at HA are extremely proud to be able to provide web hosting services powered by 100% renewable energy, located at an award-winning sustainable data centre near London.

Nick Bascombe-Fox, CTO at HA, said, “Since we started the company in 2008, we have always worked towards improving our ways of hosting for our clients, and now we need to do the same for the environment. This development allows us to implement positive changes within our industry and offer our clients a way to move towards a more sustainable way of working.”

Businesses across the world are starting to seriously consider the negative environmental impact they cause and how they can make a difference. Simply switching to a greener web hosting company, will automatically help make a difference. “As we move forward with our sustainability strategy, we are asking everyone in the HA ecosystem, from our suppliers to our customers, to come with us on this journey and become an active force for change.” Esmond Hastings, CEO at HA.
