  • #1 Green Web Hosting Do I use their service? Yes I do! I host both buy world lottery tickets online and A Loving Memorial using them.
  • Would I use their service? Definitely! In fact, the next blog I start, or if one of the hosts I currently use pisses me off, I will definitely host that / those blogs using GreenGeeks.
  • Am I an affiliate? Definitely! Why wouldn’t I be after discovering a site that offers people the chance to blog green thereby minimising their carbon imprint.
  • Are There Any Coupons? Yes, there is. I was fortunate enough to be able to secure a coupon for my readers which I have included at the end of the post.  :thumbup_ee:

I’m sure that most of you didn’t know that you could actually get green hosting for your blog or website? I know I was surprised when I happened across GreenGeeks who are said  to be the world’s #1 green web hosting site. I also know there are a lot of people out there arguing about whether or not global warming actually exists but global warming aside the one thing that people can’t deny is that we’re polluting this beautiful world of ours.

I truly believe that talking about pollution is far more tangible than the idea of global warming because it’s something that people can see. Anyone who lives in a major city can testify about the smog ridden impurities in the atmosphere. Anyone visiting from the country areas will testify how they notice the difference in the quality of the air. The trouble is unless we do something about it now, it will spread like a cancer until no matter where we go we’ll be breathing in air that has been infected with man’s pollutants.

We as individuals should be doing whatever we can to minimise that and having a green blog or website is just one of the ways we can go green. Apart from going green GreenGeeks has a lot of features to offer including;

  • Unlimited Web Space
  • Unlimited Bandwidth (Data Transfer)
  • Host Unlimited Domains on 1 Account
  • Unlimited E-mail Accounts
  • Unlimited MySQL Databases
  • FREE Domain Name for Life. This is great for those starting their first blog as it eliminates the yearly cost of renewing their domain.
  • FREE Site Migration
  • FREE Marketing Credits
  • FREE Web Site Builder + Templates

So, if you’re dissatisfied with your hosting, are looking for a host or simply want to do your bit by going green then perhaps you should consider joining the #1 Green Web Hosting site, GreenGeeks.

What’s that I hear, how can a web host be considered green? Well, firstly you need to know is that data centres, as this article shows, are becoming huge polluters, so much so that it’s said they’re going to overtake the airline industry! The GreenGeeks overcome this, partly by using the latest in technology but mostly by purchasing three times what they use from the grid in wind energy credits.

So, if you want to do your bit for the environment perhaps you’d consider using a green web host and using you can save thirty dollars by using the blogsire30 Green Geeks coupon.

    I must idea I like the idea of going green if possible. Theres me thinking I’m doing the environment a favour by sitting on my RS in front of a PC instead of driving 100s of miles not taking into account that Ive got websites sat in data centres etc.

    Once I have ramped the traffic on this site I will need to move over the dedicated hosting and will probably take a look at this. If you try hosting yourself the WHM/CPANEL license itself costs as much as the hosting in many cases, people forget this.

  2. I love that IM popup BTW – how I missed that WSO I have no idea. Been looking for something like this for a while!

    1. Hey Peter, going green is always a great idea and when you can do that and get a sweet deal at the same time, well that’s even better. As for the FB popup, it’s never too late to get your own copy.

  3. I don’t understand one thing. Why are they green? Do they use different machinery to provide hosting services to people or anything like that? I mean there must be an explanation.

    1. Hey Karolina, it’s not so about the machinery as it as about them purchasing three times what they’re using in wind energy credit. Perhaps this article will help to explain it.

  4. I actually love the idea. I’m always positive when it comes to projects that are about going green. I just hope that their services is really good.

  5. To be honest with you I find it a bit intriguing of many companies taking advantage of the “go green” term. Because most people are on the belief that they are literally using green energy, when in reality they are just paying a third party company to produce wind energy, etc. and at the end you don’t even really know if they really are buying those credits. I used to work at a hosting company that offered something similar and no one knew if they were really purchasing those credits.

    1. These guys seem pretty serious about it. I was reading some of the lengths that the staff go to within house and it’s pretty amazing.

  6. Data centers are quickly becoming primary pollutants of the world? It is very alarming since there are a lot of data centers today for different things, cloud services, web hosting, and even other famous websites use a data center to store all of their data.

    1. Unfortunately they are one of many. We should all be looking for ways to cut back on power usage as well as other ways of reducing pollutant output.
