SoftShellWeb: Host in Taiwan (or Amsterdam), Plant Some Trees! (1GB KVM from $25/year)

Tags: , , , , , , Date/Time: March 31, 2021 @ 12:00 am, by raindog308

We saw SoftShellWeb most recently back on December 23, 2020.  They’re a UK company that offers hosting in Amsterdam and Taiwan.  The first is common – the latter definitely is not!

In their last post (and the one before it), they shared some pics of their office, which was pretty cool, and we’ve discussed their green hosting initiative in the past.  For every month you have service, they plant a tree through the Eden Reforestation Project.

So with hosting in semi-exotic locales and green hosting initiatives, not to mention a well-decorated office, SoftShellWeb is not your run-of-the-mill hosting company and deserves a look.

Their WHOIS is public. They are registered in the UK. Their Terms of Service is available on their web site. They accept PayPal, Alipay, Debit/Credit Card, BitCoin, UnionPay, WebMoney, Moneta, QIWI, India Netbanking, iDeal, SOFORT Banking, DOKU, DragonPay, Boleto, Banco do Brasil, Alfa-Click, Malaysia e-banking, Pago Fácil, Rapi Pago, Red Pagos, and Bancontact.

Here’s a little about SoftShellWeb in their own words:
