We like the world that we live in, even though it’s far from perfect. We’d love it to better and we definitely don’t want it to get worse. We also like the internet, believe that information empowers people, and would like for everyone to have access to as much of it as possible.
The problem are that, although it might not be talked about or even thought about very much, the internet is a major contributor to carbon emissions and climate change, and it can be complicated and expensive to create a strong web presence.
We would like to do something about that!
S4 is a young small company but the team behind it has a lot of experience in web design, development and server management.
We are passionate about sustainability, ethics, open source software, net neutrality and internet freedom. At some point we realised that while we were doing a lot of things in our lives as sustainably as we could, the way that we were hosting our websites didn’t fit in with that.
“This is why we came up with S4, our take on the way that websites should be hosted, ethical, sustainable, green and carbon neutral.”
We spent more than a year, and a lot of thought, work, testing and development to create web hosting on our own terms, before we were ready to offer the same hosting service to other people who need a web presence that works but also care about a sustainable, fast, and affordable internet.
The S4 Team
We’ll write more about our team soon, but in the meantime you can read more about company founders John & Rima, and their adventures in travel, food and sustainability on their blog Mysterious Beans.
