Zero Carbon Website Hosting server room

If website hosting works well, you may never really think about it. However, we have seen many examples of cheap, overseas-based hosting going bad, from compromised security and slow ticket-only support to hardware failures and regular, prolonged outages.

When you add that data centres can be an enormous source of CO2 production contributing to climate change, making the right choices can feel like a minefield.

We provide UK-based zero-carbon website hostingĀ and, where needed, dedicated servers for our web clients. We also provide tailored hosting, such as Magento-optimised VPSs (Virtual Private Servers).

When it comes to reliability, we have a 100% uptime SLA on hardware with our service providers and 24-hour, 365-day-a-year telephone support with the UK-based team of engineers.

On top of this, all the hosting we offer is 100% carbon-neutral certified to the PAS2060 Carbon Neutral Standard, so you can feel confident that your website hosting is a positive contributor to your ESG goals.

Moving over to 100% carbon-neutral certified hosting in 2019 was part of POP’s sustainability strategy, combined with becoming climate-positive by investing in tree planting and ecologically positive projects via Ecologi. You can learn more about the projects we’ve helped fund on our Ecologi profile.

Here are just some of our zero-carbon website hosting’s accreditations:

  • ISO 27001
  • ISO 22301
  • ISO 9001
  • ISO 27018
  • ISO 14001
  • ISO 20000
  • PCI compliant
  • Cyber Essentials+ compliant
  • Secured to UK government IL4 standards

Security is a crucial consideration when choosing where to host your website and one we take seriously, especially as a POP client is one of the UK’s foremost security providers! However, their regular penetration testing and auditing were no match for our infrastructure, which also has a UK-based SOC (Security Operations Centre).

No wonder it was also the first choice for the Ministry of Defence.
