600% Renewable Energy Powered

CO2 Offset Year-To-Date:

Maine.Info Web Hosting

The most eco-friendly web hosting company you've never heard of.

An EPA Top Green Power Partner for nearly a decade, our renewable energy purchases are over 6 times our usage, more than double the percentage of any other EPA-certified web hosting company.

Our IBM Softlayer datacenter servers, plus our business offices, are over 600% powered by renewable energy. We offset more than 15.5 tons of CO2 every year.

600% means we purchase more than enough renewable energy for ours and another 5 similarly sized companies while providing a substantial revenue stream for additional renewable energy projects.

Cost & Security

Starting cost is $50/month for our IBM Softlayer devices. We may cost more than others, but we think the environment and our focus on security is worth it.

Our servers are secured and isolated by CloudLinux and a series of additional lock-down features. Our systems automatically back-patch CMS kernels as security updates are released, integrity check CMS plug-ins via Wordfence, push edge protection to the cloud via Sucuri web application firewalls, and actively scan for and remove malware through the Sucuri website security stack.

For government entities seeking a secure web hosting service, we are a small business certified government contractor.

Dedicated Worldwide Speed

Our IBM Softlayer servers are wicked fast and energy efficient with RAID1 SSD drives, 1 gigabit per second up/downlinks (typical is 10 or 100 megabit), an astounding 20 terabytes of server-wide bandwidth, a cached content distribution network through Sucuri and an available additional IBM CDN with over 40 worldwide points-of-presence.

Add to that our vanishingly low 1, 5, 15 minute server load averages on quad-core processors. See the current server load average on our Kingfield server:

Cloud Computing with Google for Work and Office 365

For your email, documents & more, we are a Certified Google Apps Administrator and use enterprise-grade services from Google for Work or Office 365. For non-profits, we use Google Apps for Non-Profits which means free, i.e., $0, enterprise-grade email, documents & more.

Redundancy & Recovery

With DNS clustering, Maine.Info mirrors all DNS data from our RAID 1 dedicated web servers at IBM Softlayer in Washington, D.C. to our Linode DNS servers in Atlanta. This means that your Google for Work or Office 365 email, calendars and documents will continue to function even if the IBM datacenter goes offline.

For recovery we use both mirrored RAID SSD drives and IBM Softlayer's Endurance Storage for daily, weekly & dual monthly backups. We also provide EMC/Spanning cloud-to-cloud backups for email & document recovery.
