Does green hosting really matter?
« on: July 30, 2014, 05:03:04 PM »
Recently I have come across a lot of 'green hosting' services.

I would like to know if it really matters! I am a nature friendly person myself but frankly, I think that the whole green hosting concept is a marketing strategy. A new way for the web hosting companies to generate sales.

I'll be glad to know about everyone's views on the green hosting concept.

Well! This is really an interesting question! 8)

Personally, to me it does not matter if I am hosting my website with a green web hosting company or not. I am sure this is the case with almost all the website owners as well. Having said this, I will also not discard the efforts of the web hosting companies who are working on the green data center concept. For instance, some of the web hosting companies make use of the solar panels and windmills for generating power.

I think that green hosting is a concept that sounds good! I have never used it myself. Frankly, if I am running a website, to me, it does not matter whether it is hosted on a green hosting platform or not, what matters it the hosting specs and service offered.

Well, I think green hosting just seems to be a marketing gimmick! Most of the web hosting companies portray their hosting packages as green hosting packages.

Green hosting sounds good. However, If I have a website and if I have to host it urgently I won't wait until I find a green web hosting package, any web hosting platform that provides me with sufficient web hosting resources will do.

Green hosting? Really? As long as your website is working well, who cares about that?
