The Benefits Of Going Green
So how can this problem be solved? We can’t stop using the internet and companies still need to rely on data centers. The only available answer is green server hosting. Green hosting, also known as eco-friendly hosting, reduces the environmental impact of internet hosting by utilizing green technologies. OrangeWebsite, an Iceland-based company that has been around for a decade, is doing just that.
Some of these green technologies that we use at OrangeWebsite include energy saving appliances, carbon offsetting, planting trees around the center, and using renewable energy. So while the average web server consumes 1,000 KWh of energy and 630 kilograms of carbon dioxide a year, we produce no carbon dioxide. This means that any business that utilizes our services is reducing their environmental footprint and the environmental footprint of their customers.
This isn’t just a ‘good’ thing to do out of the kindness of a company’s heart. It is a wise business decision. Partnering with OrangeWebsite changes an organization’s reputation. By simply adding green credentials to their name, a business can drastically alter the way current and potential customers view them. Being environmentally conscious is an added benefit of shopping from them–one more reason to stay loyal or to move from a similar brand that isn’t quite as forward thinking. Additionally, because only the initial setup cost is high for the host, rather than the regular operational expense of buying energy from the utility company, it doesn’t cost anymore to use our services at OrangeWebsite.
