Sustainable Websites – Green!

August 15, 2008 by  

Are you looking for a new web host that reflects your environmentally conscious personality? Do you want to stop giving your hard earned money to large, carefree web hosting companies that pollute the environment?

Do you want to feel like you are making a difference?

Sustainable Websites is exactly what you are looking for!

Sustainable Websites offer many of the same features that a larger, more established web host offers for a more reasonable price. We will start on the technical side. Sustainable Websites offers all of their clients 24/7/365 server monitoring, as well as daily and weekly backups. The also have multiple power sources and backup power on site, so a power outage will not have any effect on your website of data. If you have never had a power outage at you web host, this probably doesn’t matter to you. But if you have experienced a disaster like a major power outage, you know how valuable these features are.

Here are some of the features that Sustainable Websites offers that may be more important to the average webmasters. Every plan includes unlimited POP email accounts, Unlimited MySQL databases, Unlimited Email Lists and Unlimited Subdomains. This is great, because you will not have guess how many databases or email addresses you will need as your website expands before you place your order.

One last feature that is definitely worth mentioning is the control panel Sustainable Websites uses.  Instead of using a cheap, basic control panel like many other small web hosts use, Sustainable Websites uses cPanel. If you are not familiar with cPanel, It’s the best. That’s all there is to say. Take my word for it.

Sustainable Websites offers three web hosting plans to its clients. Every hosting plan includes all the features that are mentioned in the above paragraph, and each plan only differs by the amount of bandwidth and storage space they offer.

The most cost effective plan is the entry level “Basic” plan. For only $10 per month,  you get 1000mb of storage space, 10gb of bandwidth every month.

For $10 more per month, the “Small Business” plan doubles the available storage space to 2000mb and doubles the bandwidth to 20gb per month.

If you want the top of the line package from Sustainable Websites, you will be paying $30 per month for the “Professional” plan. You get 3000mb of storage space and 30gb of bandwidth per month.

It is also worth noting that you can pay month to month, but if you pay for a whole year upfront, you get a 17% discount on each package. It’s a great deal!

Sustainable Websites web hosting is a great fit for people who want a great website but are also environmentally conscious. With that being said, this isn’t the place you will want to host a video download website or a forum with a large member base. Sustainable Websites is more suited to smaller, professional websites. One of the main benefits of Sustainable Websites is their size. They are the opposite of a host like Godaddy, where it takes 10 minutes to get someone on the phone. Sustainable Websites prides themselves in their personal relationships and customer service with their clients. If you want the customer service people to know you by your name, than this is the host for you.

Sustainable Websites offers great green services at a great price. They offer almost everything larger hosts offer, but are small enough so you can develop a personal relation with them. If you want to free yourself from the trap of large web hosts who pollute the environment, don’t care about you personally and charge outrageous price, than Sustainable Websites is for you!

    I really wish all hosting companies would be cool and green. In many regards it is an issue of inefficient cooling systems or poor rack layout. Some companies even have their rooms too cool.

    I am a big fan of buying green as it is how I vote for more.
