What is an eco-friendly website?

As most of us now recognize the importance of environmentally- friendly business practices,  you may not know or be aware that the data centers  that hosts websites and stores data located all over the world use an enormous amount of energy to run their equipment and to keep it cool.   

With that in mind, some hosting companies have found ways to reduce their carbon foot print.  I have provided a link to an article in Online Business Canada that outlines “The Most Environmentally Friendly Website Hosts” in Canada.   

The article outlines what each of them does to reduce their carbon footprint. 

If you’re concerned about the environmental practices of your current host, send them an email. You can easily switch to a greener company if you’re not happy with their answer. In fact, some website hosts will move your website to their servers free of charge.
