This company sets a mission to improve carbon footprints by offering climate-friendly shared, dedicated hosting and VPS servers. seems to have some of the best sustainable and green practices in the current hosting industry, but it still needs improvements in view of usability and support. Plus, the limited features make this company an improper option for webmasters looking for a relatively inexpensive solution that will deliver great value. web hosting is built on two different platforms, and the Linux-based shared hosting consists of three different levels of plans named after EcoLinux 1, EcoLinux 2 and EcoLinux 3. The prices of the plans range from $6.25/mo to $16.5/mo without extra freebies. For plan cancellation made within the first 30 days, this company grants a full refund of the pre-paid fees.

Editorial Review Control Panel Review 2.50 of 5

Like most web hosts, also has a purpose-built control panel that can ease the tasks of configurations and customizations. The customers can use their unique login IDs to access the "Online Control Panel", which would be permanently embedded on the main website. Plus, there are comprehensive controls to be implemented on those hosting plans and domains through the custom control panel, depending on what services customers have obtained.

On the down side, the UI (users interface) is pretty cluttered with links and hidden menus as well as information, which force users to go through familiarization exercises. Obviously, it does not look as elegant and pleasant as cPanel. For customers on dedicated servers, they are supplied with a premium control panel, a product designed for client hosting account management.

Technical support is lacking in Generally this company offers all the basic of contact and support. For instance, a ticket system is always accessible when you wish to seek a problem resolution but aren't fussed about the time taken by this process. The toll-free phone call support is only available to the U.S.

Based on collected feedbacks, most email responses from support representatives contain spelling errors and lack capitalization and punctuation. It seems that a minor/simple issue would irritate the engineers speaking on the smartphone easily, and the replied answers are often short and useless. Often times, it requires multiple queries to address problems. Review on Data Center & Network 3.00 of 5

The mission of is to be the most responsible and reliable green hosting service provider. Its data center is built on the latest green design techniques with continuous power from air, water and sun.

According to the taken result, its network connection speed is in general good.
