I used to use green geeks for my web hosting but have since stopped due to my need for CMS and the fact that webflow is such a darn good web design, development, and CMS platform. However, I am sorely missing my hosting with green geeks, knowing that my hosting choice was having a positive impact within the industry of web hosting, which is one of the largest users of energy. Eventually, I will devise a way to move away from hosting with webflow and using a green hosting company. I would love if webflow offered a green hosting plan (check out green geeks model, its really awesome) or offered someway to integrate third party hosting from a green company without exporting my sites out of webflow. This would be amazing, and I think really beneficial for webflow as a company in the long run.

    Amazon seem committed to sustainability when it comes to their data centres and have commissioned their own research into the carbon efficiency of their data centres comparing them to alternatives.

    "The carbon footprint for the same server performance on the AWS cloud is 88% lower than the median of surveyed enterprises."

    For Webflow to offer the service it provides AWS is likely the best option for cloud hosting at the scale they need. Ultimately it is in Amazon's best interest to make their data centres as efficient as possible - and that means reducing water for cooling data centres as well as energy consumption.

    Note: If Webflow wanted to evaluate the climate related spend analysis for AWS they can using this tool:

    My website hosted on webflow does not do it well in calculated carbon emission. I would want my website hosted on Webflow to be much greener. I will try to minimize my use of photos, put the servers need to be run on cleaner energy.

    The outcry on this issue is growing, and companies or even small businesses should have this on their radar. In the future, it may happen that customers check a website exactly according to such criteria.

    The only way I'll use Webflow is if a green hosting plan exists with transparency about a site's carbon footprint. An absolute must.

    Wenflow should be aligned with the sustainability of the planet. To this day I still don't know if they made the transition to green and sustainable servers.

    Since i found out that webflow is hosted on aws, i’ve had this bitter taste in my mouth. Webflow is a great company, and I really wish they could get in the 20s with the rest of the world, and start thinking of future generations. It’s sure gonna easier to sell hosting to my clients (let’s face it, it’s quite expensive compared to other solutions) if I can had the famous green argument to my pitch.

    I'd like this to be an option as well. Green hosting aligns with of a few of my clients brands and I'm split between hosting elsewhere and using Webflow.

    It's good to know that your servers are partially sustainable through Amazon, however in today's climate I think we need to push for more. Are you looking into any strategy to improve on this?

    Also, are any additional information available on sustainability?

    Webflow doesn't have it's own servers. Instead we use both Amazon Web Servers and CDN.

    I wasn't able to find information about sustainability on, but I'll ask them :)
