If you’re thinking about switching to green hosting, good for you! Green hosting is an important step in dealing with climate change.
AfterFive Web Hosting is using renewable energy to both power and cool their servers, whereas a number of green hosts only offset the electricity used to power their servers. That represents a big difference, because servers generate a lot of heat. For every watt of electricity that a server uses, 1-2 watts of electricity are typically required to cool it. What that means is that we are investing in about twice as much renewable energy, on a per server basis, as those green hosts only using renewable energy to power their servers.
Climate change is real, it’s happening now, and we as a planet desperately need to reduce our IT emissions. And if we wait for the government to solve the problem, we’ll be waiting for a long, long, LONG time.
I have high standards, and AfterFive by Design exceeded my expectations in every way. As a kids’ book author, I needed a site that was fun, playful, organized, cutting-edge, and easy for ME to update—I got all that and more! I kept hearing from others, “The site is so YOU!” I could have gotten a cookie-cutter website anywhere; but thanks to AfterFive, my site is one-of-a-kind and is getting me noticed and getting me business!
