Founded in 2003, Rochen’s mission is to build innovative hosting services that, while complex, are elegant and simple to use. We deliver these services on top of the most reliable server and network infrastructure available. We underpin these services with world-class support from pragmatic, technically capable, and customer service focused teams.
Rochen heavily contributes to the open source world. We are the official web host of the Joomla! project’s official websites, and we’re also a Premium Hosting Supporter of the Drupal project. We provide hosting services for tens of thousands of Joomla, Drupal, and WordPress websites.
To provide the highest levels of service, complete control over the hosting infrastructure is required. Rochen owns all of our server hardware, switches, and even server racks. Unlike many hosting providers, Rochen do not lease our equipment from anyone else. Only the best enterprise-grade servers are in operation. Our offering includes added value services such as our Rochen Vault Managed Backups, and Web Application Firewall (WAF) protection, as standard.
Rochen operates from global data centers in Dallas, Texas, and London, England. We also have access to Content Delivery (CDN) points of presence (POPs) across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. All of Rochen’s hosting infrastructure is built with performance, reliability, and security in mind.
Take a look inside our web hosting operations.
Like Rochen, many of our clients have become increasingly concerned with environmental issues in recent years. We want to do what we can to help address these without compromising the quality of service that we have become renowned for throughout the hosting industry.
Rochen understands that operating highly redundant data centers can have an impact on the environment. Rochen has partnered with Green Mountain Energy, the leading provider of cleaner energy and carbon offsetting solutions, to purchase carbon credits to offset the emissions of our hosting operations.
On behalf of Rochen, Green Mountain will invest renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power, as well as biomass facilities – many of which have been set up as a result of their initiatives. Rochen’s funding will also provide support for reforestation projects throughout Green Mountain’s relationship with the Pacific Forest Trust. Our emissions are reviewed annually, and carbon credits adjusted accordingly.
Green Hosting Seal
If you already host with Rochen you may place the Green Hosting Seal on your website to show your site visitors that you take environmental issues seriously and have taken steps to offset any emissions generated from the operation of your website. Rochen also have an unbranded seal available for reseller hosting customers to use upon request.
