Is Eco-friendly web-hosting a scam or does it really help the world?

Question by Anna Banana: Is Eco-friendly web-hosting a scam or does it really help the world?
I’m deciding whether I should spend an extra twenty bucks on Eco friendly web hosting. but I’m not really sure if I’ll seriously make a difference. I think its just a way to get money. Is it?
It says how like internet servers produce CO2 which gets released into the air.

No idea. But really, how does internet web hosting affect the world? That’s my logic.

  1. Well servers use a lot of power, and the power plants that create that power generate a lot of CO2. I’m thinking that they source their power from renewable energy sources, or use carbon offsets or something similar..

  2. look if theres a ABOUT button near that eco friendly option

  4. I wouldn’t bother.

    Do your own “Eco friendly” at home. Spend your $ 20 on a handful of CFL’s (Compact Fluorescent Lamps) and put ’em in the sockets you use the most.

    Don

  5. There is a nice article about green hosting they have at “FatCow”. They explain there how hosting may be green.

  6. If it is $ 20 per year, that is pretty reasonably. If you look at a company like http://www.a2hosting.com they are a green company that offsets their carbon emissions from their servers. For example, they allow employees to telecommute, don’t use paper towels, recycle servers etc. I would say no, green hosting companies definitely are not a scam.
