This Site is Green!

Okay, aes­thet­i­cal­ly, the site isn’t very green at all. How­ev­er, my awe­some host, DreamHost, is a car­bon-neu­tral, green web host­ing solu­tion. By exten­sion, that means Rick Beck­man is green. Neat!

  1. What about hav­ing your web site pow­ered by solar.…AISO.Net (http://www.aiso.net) is 100% solar pow­ered, both their servers and data cen­ter are pow­ered by onsite solar pan­els. And they also have a part­ner­ship with Co-Op Amer­i­ca, the U.S. Envi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency, and the U.S. Green Build­ing Coun­cil. Plus, they are doing more then just mak­ing sure their elec­tric­i­ty is green. Their data cen­ter and office is green too by using envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly air con­di­tion­ers, solar tubes to bring in nat­ur­al light, a propane pow­ered gen­er­a­tor instead of diesel, VMWare vir­tu­al­iza­tion to reduce their serv­er elec­tric­i­ty usage, 6 watt ener­gy sav­ing desk­top com­put­ers for their employ­ees, and soon to be LEED cer­ti­fied as a green data cen­ter, the only pub­lic one in North Amer­i­ca, at least that I have found so far.

    1. Why not switch to them? Well, I already have green host­ing for one…

      For two, I’m only pay­ing $15.95/mo. I see that AISO offers $9.95/mo. plans, so let’s com­pare to their best shared host­ing plan ($24.95/mo.).

      Here’s what I have vs. what they offer:

      * Disk space: 489.744 GB vs. 0.5 GB
      * Band­width: 5.648 TB vs. 0.015 TB
      * Data­bas­es: Unlim­it­ed (cur­rent­ly using 9) vs. 2
      * Email accounts: 12,000 vs. 500

      And more.

      Frankly, I real­ly, real­ly like Dreamhost. :)
