Green Hosting

Jst Hosting is committed in providing a high quality services to our customers whilst trying to reduce our impact on the environment. We do this in a number of ways.

Data Centre

In addition to Jst Hosting’s green efforts, our datacenter has a very stringent green policy. Most of our servers are currently located in the Bluesquare Data Centre. BlueSquare Data offers carbon neutral hosting through tree planting with the Carbon Managers:

  • They support the Trees 4 Business Campaign and have made a commitment to plant 500 trees this year alone through our support of the Carbon Managers
  • This commitment is published in a public register which can be viewed at www.carbonmanagers.com/treeregister
  • The trees will be planted in Scotland and will help to return the Highland Glens to their former glory. A single tree can absorb a tonne of CO2 each year and our planting programme is designed to make a significant difference to our net carbon output. One hundred thousand trees have already been planted there under this scheme.
  • The air conditioning units in Milton Keynes use a system called “free air cooling” which means if the outside temperature is low enough to cool the hot air extracted from the data floors, then the chillers will not enable. This saves energy whilst also making the most of a natural resource. A survey was done taking the average temperature of the area of BlueSquare MK over the space of a year and it showed that on average the chillers wouldn’t be used for 9 months of the year.
