Green Hosting and Why is IT Good

  • Did you know that the average server produces the same emissions as a 15 mpg SUV?

  • HostGator hosts over 4,000,000 websites on its shared and reseller web hosting servers.

  • That means a lot of servers, and a lot of carbon emissions.

  • So they asked themselves, what can they do to be part of the climate change solution?

  • They took steps to minimize our environmental impact at the office, but still they weren't satisfied.

  • They then switched to 36% more efficient servers, but still they weren't satisfied!

All of HostGator shared and reseller servers are now 130% wind powered!

That's right! 130%! They not just neutralizing their environmental impact, we're reversing it!

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

Just how big a dent in climate change does that make? It's the equivalent of:

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