March 6, 2009 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) A Montana-based Web hosting provider is taking a creative approach to promoting green practices and protecting the environment. The new Web hosting company, dubbed Online4earth.com
, has pledged a portion of its proceeds to subsidize the cost of clean energy projects in the state of Montana.
Online4earth.com's mission is to become an active contributor to the green movement and help reduce carbon output. In doing so, the Web hosting company will support a number of exciting initiatives, including a subsidized solar paneling project, the development of an eco-friendly ecommerce Web site, and the construction of an educational Web site that focuses on creating environmental change without sacrificing personal gratification.
Currently, Online4earth.com is offsetting its carbon footprint by funding restoration projects in Kenya. In addition, the Web hosting company is proud to work with the well-respected Carbonfootprint.com, an award-winning carbon management business.
In essence, Online4earth.com is taking a have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too approach to environmental problem solving, according to Director of Business Development Mathew Lenning. "Our goal isn't to force everyone to eat Kashi GoLean to save the planet," Lenning said, referring to the popular brand of high-fiber, low-fat products. "Instead, we want to find ways to keep doing what we are doing--and create a win/win for the environment and consumers."
As a full-service hosting provider, Online4earth.com offers high-quality Web and email hosting, domain services, secure socket layer certification and Internet marketing solutions. But beyond providing superior products and services, the company gives consumers an opportunity to support a worthy cause. "Online4earth.com provides great prices on products that meet or exceed the industry standard," Lenning said. "We guarantee 99.9% uptime and offer 24/7 live customers support services. Customers that host their site with us receive peace of mind knowing that they have become part of the solution to our global concerns."
Customers of Online4earth.com also have the satisfaction of knowing they have the power to change the course of the planet. And on a smaller scale, their support will help enhance the local environment and economy of Montana. Lenning explained: "By utilizing our high-quality Web hosting and domain registration services, our customers create local jobs, assist in the transition to cleaner energy and become champions for our environment and the Montana way of life."
Interestingly, Lenning--a University of Montana student majoring in Japanese--received much of his "green" inspiration from periodically living and working in Japan. Japan's waste-not-want-not approach to using resources gave Lenning a profound desire to change the world and, ultimately, helped form the basis of Online4earth.com. "We want our customers to know that by using Web hosting our services they help the environment without reducing the quality of their experience, services or product," he said. "Our customers sacrifice nothing in the name of environmental responsibility--and that's the way it should be."
