Green Web Hosting

Neutralising our environmental impact

Green Hosting

Our partner HostGator has purchased certified Renewable Energy Credits representing 130% of the electricity used to both power and cool every last one of our shared servers!


Did you know that not all green web hosting is equal? Here are some reasons why.....

Green hosting is vital for dealing with climate change. But be aware – you’ll find that not all of the green hosting options out there are nearly as green as they claim to be. Hostgator’s program stands out from the pack, and that is why we have partnered with them.

HostGator has invested in Green -e certified Renewable Energy Credits (RECs). That means that all of their RECs are verified, tracked and monitored – and greening its energy at the source with rock solid RECs.

HostGator is using renewable energy to both power and cool their servers, whereas many green hosts only offset the electricity used to power their servers. The difference is huge. For every watt of electricity that a server uses, 1-2 watts of electricity are typically required to cool it. This means Hostgator uses double renewable energy as a “green host” who only uses renewable energy to power their servers.

Did you know that the average server produces the same emissions as a 15mpg SUV? We host many websites, and that means lots of servers, and a lot of carbon emissions. So we asked ourselves “What can we do to be part of the climate change solution?”

Just how big a dent in climate change does the Hostgator renewable energy program make? It’s the equivalent of:

  • Removing 444 cars from the road for a year
  • Clean energy for 321 homes for a year
  • Saving 5,654 barrels of oil
  • Protecting 551 acres of forest for a year
