Did you know that the average server produces the same emissions as a 15 mpg SUV?
HostGator hosts over 1,300,000 websites on its shared and reseller servers. That means a lot of servers, and a lot of carbon emissions. So we asked ourselves, What can we do to be part of the climate change solution? We took steps to minimize our environmental impact at the office, but still we weren't satisfied. We then switched to 36% more efficient servers, but still we weren't satisfied!
All of HostGator's wind credits are generated here in our home state of Texas! While we can't build a wind farm here in downtown Houston, we're doing the next best thing and investing in renewable energy close to home!
Every last one of HostGator's wind credits are Green-e certified. That means they've been registered, verified, and retired from the market.
Greening the Gator!
