Best Green Web Hosting Services Comparison
In 2020, the web hosting industry will become as big of a polluter as the airline industry. This is due to the massive energy consumption it needs to power and cool the servers and hardware that keep the internet up and running.
According to the Green Web Foundation only 16.6% of all websites are located on eco-friendly web hosting servers, the other 83.4% of websites are not eco-friendly.
The biggest changes in the industry must come from consumers, like you and your clients, making an effort to find an eco-friendly web hosting service. The majority of the hosting companies who have embraced becoming "green" did so because their clients and prospective clients have asked them to do so.

"I filled out the form for the United States, and it said we use 11,474 gallons of water per person per year. When I looked at my actual bill over the past 2 months, and calculated the annual usage for both of us (2 people in our household), it came out to 16,425 gallons per year, which would be 8,212.5 gallons per person per year. Overall, not a bad estimate considering how simple it is to fill out. Are others finding it pretty accurate?"
