Doing our part
At AllHost, we are committed to the environment and take pride in our dedication to green web hosting. We believe that responsible business practices are essential in today’s world, and that includes minimizing our carbon footprint.
Our commitment to sustainability goes beyond just words; it’s a fundamental part of our operational ethos. By harnessing renewable energy sources, optimizing our environment for the highest performance-per-watt efficiency, and implementing eco-friendly practices, we strive to provide hosting solutions that not only meet your online needs but also align with our mission to protect our planet for future generations.
Join us in making a positive impact on the web and the world!
Buy Hosting, Plant Trees!
We’ve teamed up with Ecologi in a meaningful collaboration to amplify our commitment to the environment.
For every web hosting plan purchased from our platform, we pledge to plant trees – the amount varies depending on the plan ordered.
This initiative not only offers our customers top-tier hosting solutions, but it also provides a simple yet impactful way for them to contribute to global reforestation projects.
By partnering with us, you’re not just getting reliable web services; you’re directly investing in a greener and more sustainable planet. Let’s harness the power of technology and nature, working hand in hand, to create lasting positive change for our world.
As of 2023, our servers are located in the Telehouse London and Continuity House Midlands datacentres.
Telehouse uses 100% clean and renewable energy across all operations. The energy is procured from certified renewable source generators such as wind, solar, biomass and hydro. Read more here.
The Midlands datacentre was recently built in 2022 with a low PUE target at the forefront of the datacentre build design. Power is provided by a green energy supplier to ensure that every kilowatt provided is generated or paid back into the supply using renewable energy sources.
Balancing high-performance with eco-friendliness is a difficult task for a company with high performance computing as a primary goal.
As part of our hardware refresh in Q4 2023, we evaluated different server configurations and found that the servers equipped with the AMD Ryzen 9 7000 processors offer the highest performance-per-watt possible.
Our previous servers were based on the Intel Xeon E-2388G CPU (8cores / 16threads with up to 5.10GHz turbo) and found they used an average of 200w/hour per server!
Our new Ryzen servers with identical work tasks use an average 90w/hour.
That’s an immediate 55% decrease in power usage with an average 20% faster single-threaded performance and 50% higher multi-core performance – as well as having more cores & threads available to be able to put more work through the same server.
The graph below show a real-world migration of moving virtual machines from 1 hypervisor (E-2388G – light) to another (Ryzen 7900 – dark). Be sure to swipe all the way to the left to see the axis change dramatically!
