Wind Powered Web Hosting
The average web server produces the same emissions as a 15 mpg vehicle!
Which caused us to ask ourselves, ‘What can we do to reduce these emissions?’ We decided that our web servers would be wind powered!
If you’re thinking about switching to green web hosting, good for you! Being Green with your web site hosting is an important step in dealing with climate change. But not all green hosting is all green.
Fast Daddy Web Hosting is a little different in that we are using renewable energy to both power and cool our servers. A number of green web hosts only offset the electricity used to power their servers. That is a big difference, because web servers and computers in general create a lot of heat. With web servers, generally for every watt of electricity that a server uses for power an additional 1 to 2 watts of electricity is required to keep it cool. What that means is that Fast Daddy Web Hosting is using about twice as much renewable energy, on a per server basis, as green hosts only using renewable energy to power their servers.
