We’re all about the green here at MyCityByNight (pause for laughter) and we’ve made a concerted effort to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible. Part of reducing the impact that MCBN makes on the environment starts with our choice of hosting company.
Did you know that if the internet and it’s energy consumption were compared to that of all the globe’s countries it would be equivalent to being the 5th biggest electricity consumer in the world! Each year the average web server uses as much electricity as is required to fully power 30 000 households. Every website you visit has to be hosted by a web server, running 24 hours a day/7 days a week/365 days a year. Thats’ a huge amount of carbon being spewed out…
Get Green offers carbon-neutral web hosting to green-conscious individuals, businesses and organisations throughout South Africa. The company houses its server in a datacenter that uses renewable wind and solar energy to power and cool the servers.
Get Green makes it effortless for companies (and individuals) to go green, offering free domain, data, email and database transfers from their current web hosting provider as well as planting a tree for you when you sign up. These boys are the consumate professionals and sort out all of our troubles in an instant… Give em a shout and GET GREEN.
