New 'green hosting' packages
It's Earth Week and Avec is delighted to announce the immediate availability of new environmentally-friendly hosting packages.
We have partnered with one of the handful of data centres in the world that are actually 'off grid' and fully powered by renewable energy (in this case, wind), so the new hosting packages aren't based on somewhat controversial carbon 'offsets', but are essentially carbon-free.
At the same time, we are striving to reduce the overall energy consumption of the servers used, and steadily improving all aspects of our environmental performance.
Now, as you might expect, investment in renewable energy doesn't come cheap, and the cost of delivering the new green hosting will be considerably more expensive for us.
Nevertheless, as a reflection of our strong value base and our commitment to the wider community sector, we are making these new green hosting packages available at the same price as our existing offerings.
Over time, we will be migrating all domains and hosting packages, but if you would like more information or would like us to prioritise the migration of your hosting to the new green platform, please contact us.
