Dreamhost has a page called "We're Green". How green is WebFaction? Where does your server halls buy their electricity from? Where do you get yours from? How are you working to reduce and eliminate your carbon footprint?

Thanks, Robin

The data-center we use is SoftLayer and they do have some green projects in place. I was able to find this recent article form a 3rd party site,

We also all work from home and so we do not have the overhead garbage/energy/pollution of an office building.

What about the data center in Europe?

Here is an article on Leaseweb, which we use in Europe: http://blog.leaseweb.com/2010/03/11/the-green-giant-leaseweb-leads-the-way-towards-sustainable-energy-efficient-hosting/

Concerning the one in europe it seems they use EvoSwitch which uses only renewable energy (and offsets any diesel used in the backup generators if they are needed). More details here:

So which datacenter is used in Amsterdam? I read three different answers. SoftLayer, Leaseweb, or EvoSwitch? I want to know if I can put a "green" label on my Webfaction hosting. Thanks,

Danny

In Amsterdam both Softlayer and Leaseweb (via EvoSwitch) are used. To find out exact which datacenter your account is on, please open a ticket at our support site.
