I’m a big fan of pair Networks, my hosting company. Their service has been outstanding; the few times I’ve ever had a glitch with my shared hosting, they have been responsive beyond the call of duty and done whatever it takes to fix the issue. I use them to host not only a half-dozen of my own sites, but family and client sites as well, plus some other groups I’m involved with. It has been a uniformly excellent experience.
Now I see pair Networks has gone carbon-neutral too. While such labels can be abused, and I wouldn’t really trust this announcement from just anyone, I trust them. I’m happy to see them trying to reduce their environmental impact. Go pair, go!
Side note: pair is not the cheapest, but every other hosting provider I’ve heard people rave about for cheapness eventually ends up being a sore point—even the biggest in the industry—I’ll name no names. Sometimes there’s no way to know if someone is good without trying them for six months and seeing how they handle problems. I am also involved with enterprises that use Blue Ridge InternetWorks, who is also top-notch and employs a number of people I respect a lot.
