Wind TurbineThis may come as a surprise, but the internet is not green, and the website hosting industry is not environmentally friendly. How much energy does the internet use? Here are some statistics:

  • The internet consumes about 2% of all the energy used globally—and has been growing by about 12% per year for the past decade. At this level, the internet consumes more energy than the auto industry and is set to surpass the airline industry.
  •  A small 10-megawatt data center can consume the same amount of energy as a small town at a cost of over $300,000.00 a month. When you combine the fact that there are over 500,000 data centers world-wide, it means that the internet uses around 406 terawatts per year.
  • If the internet was a country, it would be the 5th largest consumer of energy in the world, just after Japan and above Russia.

How Are Our Hosting Servers “Green”?

Our hosting servers pull energy from the grid like everyone else. This ensures that we have a constant flow of power to our servers and to guarantee that we don’t have an interruption in service.

In order to replace the energy our servers use, wind energy credits are purchased to replace the energy we consume from the grid. In fact, we put back 3x more wind energyAnother Wind Turbine credits than we use! This allows our web hosting customers to say that they’re a 300% green hosted site.

By hosting your site with Artisan Green Web Hosting, You’re not only helping to reduce your own carbon footprint, but the carbon footprint of others as well.
