DreamHost – A Green Hosting

Do you know that DreamHost is a green hosting? Well, when I first found out that DreamHost is a green hosting, I also got anxious to know what exactly is a green hosting? Then I started researching on what is green hosting and why DreamHost is a green host? This is what I have found.

A Green Host simply means a hosting company which makes some efforts to clean the environment. Every hosting company runs thousands of servers. These servers consume a lot of electricity. Generating this much electricity impacts on environment badly. So what a green host does is that it either uses renewable energy for running the company or it purchases renewable power certificate. It is not compulsory for a green host to use the renewable energy. The green host can reduce the environment effect by planting and growing trees around the offices and data centers.

How DreamHost is Green?

Now you might assume that DreamHost is running its offices and data centers on renewable energy. If you are thinking that then let me tell you that you are wrong. DreamHost is unable to run its offices and datacenters from energy generated by wind, solar or water. So what DreamHost does is that it purchases renewable energy credits. These renewable energy credits are certified by Green-e.

Since DreamHost is purchasing the renewable credits, it doesn’t mean that they are using the power and all other resources without thinking. DreamHost always tries to reduce the resources used in its daily operations.

People at DreamHost drinks coffee in the cups made from renewable resources. Also they take care while using the electricity. That means they are turning off lights when not needed. They reduces the travel and printing on the both side of the paper to save the papers. Thus, you can say that DreamHost is truly a green hosting provider.
