Why we love green web hosting with acornhost
The longer we work with our web hosting company Acorn Host, the more we like them. They provide 24/7 customer support; they back up our client websites daily, weekly and monthly. Their control panel is very user friendly and gives our clients a vast array of controls for their sites. To top it off, they provide “green web hosting.” Here’s what that means:
Acorn Host purchases "green certificates" monthly for the amount of energy that is used to run the servers, office equipment, lights, etc. Renewable Energy Certificates (also known as green tags or green certificates) are a simple way to effectively power a business (or your home) on 100% renewable energy resources, without changing electricity providers. We pay for green energy to be put into the power grid equal to the amount of energy we use. (www.acornhost.com)
They also work with two “green” datacenters, both of which are moving in a green direction.
Internally, Acorn Host seeks sustainable practices that you can read more about here.
