Welcome to GreenHostSites.org your number one source for information, news, and reviews about the best green hosting companies.
By now everyone is well aware of the importance of environmental sustainability, but few know about the commitment that many web hosts have made to minimize the impact of their data centers. At GreenHostSites.org we only feature the best green hosting services that have a proven track record and demonstrated ability to implement carbon offsetting and/or use renewable sources of energy.
The following sites are all considered top tier green hosting services:
1) Green Geeks – The only 300% wind powered Green Host that operates a carbon neutral facility with an energy efficient data center.
2) Super Green – Environmentally friendly hosting with energy efficient servers powered by the wind.
3) FatCow – Operates a carbon neutral data center via the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates.
4) iPage – Uses Renewable Energy Certificates and a tree planting scheme for each hour of power usage by their hosting infrastructure.
All of the green hosting services featured on GreenHostSites.org are independently evaluated according to the following criteria.
1) Renewable energy certificates are purchased by firms not located in an area with access to renewable energy. All of our recommended firms invest in these certificates and by doing so build up renewable energy elsewhere with the goal of increasing renewable energy resources
2) Carbon offsetting – All our recommended sites actively plant trees to negate the amount of CO2 that they release via electricity usage.
3) Alternative energy sources – our green hosting companies use wind and solar power within their energy
