We do this through the highest possible automation dispense with unnecessary spending and ensure streamlined structures in all areas. As one of the largest web hosts in Germany and Austria, we can also brand hardware (eg Cisco routers, high-end server systems, etc..) Acquire at bargain prices. These and other cost savings will flow directly into our low prices with one.

By the renowned climate consulting company ClimatePartner we have an extensive and ongoing study - a declaration which CO2 emissions by Web hosting services from domain factory during a year are caused - last updated in March 2009. In particular, the power consumption of the servers plays a very important role, but also by other business-related activities such as trips by all employees to and from the workplace, business trips or heating costs for office space is the environment with harmful CO2 emissions load.

Climate neutrality is itself the target of the emissions generated by saving the same amount to compensate elsewhere. To effective action on climate change, this neutral position by the global impact of greenhouse gases. Where in the emissions of harmful CO2 emissions avoided, plays no role in climate protection - to prevent the emergence of emissions by additional climate protection measures elsewhere, therefore, the self-made emissions are neutralized.

Carbon neutral hosting is achieved at domainfactory by buying ecologically valuable emission allowances for a wind power project in India. The purchase of these certificates under the UN Framework Convention on Climate tested and approved wind farm we achieve that is in the level of our hand-made CO2 emissions-free energy for introduction into the power grid. The result is sweeping the avoided production of additional CO2 emissions and contaminated conventional power for an active contribution to environmental protection by the climate neutral position of our web hosting services!

.info-Domains bei domainfactory - Muenchen, 10. Februar 2011 - Premium-Webhoster domainfactory hat den Preis fuer neu registrierte .info-Domains stark gesenkt: Sie kosten im ersten Jahr nur mehr 0,25 Euro* pro Monat. Das entspricht einer Preissenkung um mehr als 75 Prozent.
Bis Ende Maerz sind .info-Domains bei domainfactory besonders preiswert zu haben: Sie kosten im ersten Jahr nur mehr 0,25 Euro* pro Monat. Das entspricht einer Preissenkung um mehr als drei Viertel. Ab dem zweiten Jahr faellt dann der regulaere Domainpreis von 1,05 Euro* pro Monat in Deutschland beziehungsweise 1,19 Euro* pro Monat in Osterreich an.
Die Aktion gilt fuer neu registrierte Domains, Providerwechsel oder die Verlaengerung bestehender Domains sind nicht moglich. Versteckte Fallstricke gibt es keine: Die Laufzeit von Domains betraegt bei domainfactory generell zwolf Monate. Es besteht also keine Verpflichtung, die Domains nach dem ersten Jahr zu behalten.

One of the best hosters I know, especially for TYPOlight/Contao installations. It's where you'll find the latest PHP/MySQL releases for sure, including extensions and settings like SOAP, GDlib, myCrypt, mod_rewrite etc.! In other words you'll definitely find what you need for a modern CMS.

# DomainFactory offers a wide variety of packages, from domain management via shared hosting to own servers at fair rates.
# Excellent and friendly service/support via phone, email, forum, live chat.
# Status information via forum, account, news feed.
# Uptime 99,9 % and excellent information if problems should occur.
# The best (self-developed) anti spam filters I ever experienced.
# Green hosting.
# Own/editable php.ini and .htaccess and everything else you want to take for granted.

Technical specs can be looked up but to me it is very important to find reviews stating a great customer satisfaction because that's what you can't see in well marketed hosting offers.
