Green, Icelandic web hosting and virtual servers from Webarchitects.
Webarchitects offer our Ecodissident website hosting and virtual servers through a partnership with Icelandic hosting company 1984, as part of our commitment to renewable energy, and the practice and defence of freedom of speech and self-expression (except hate speech or incitement to violence).
Like ALL our services, these servers are 100% sustainably powered. In Iceland the electricity grid is powered using geothermal and hydro-electricity . No other nation uses such a high proportion of renewable energy resources. Iceland's energy grid is reliable and resilient and less cooling is needed than in warmer parts of the world, further reducing ecological impacts.
We support the International Modern Media Institute (IMMI) which is working to make Iceland a safe haven for freedom of speech. Being located offshore in Iceland, the servers offer the highest level of protection for journalists, whistleblowers and organisations where online attack is a real possibility.
Iceland will become the inverse of a tax haven; by offering journalists and publishers some of the most powerful protections for free speech and investigative journalism in the world. Tax havens aim to make everything opaque. Our aim is to make everything transparent. — Birgitta Jónsdóttir, the chief sponsor in parliament of the Icelandic Modern Media Initiative.
