Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) October 25, 2012 -- iPage, a web hosting services that has been operating since 1998, has come up with a way to provide 100% green and eco friendly web hosting services to all of its over 1 million website owners who use their services. This is possible through the purchase of renewable energy certificates (RECs). By doing this, iPage claims to have offset their energy use by over 200%.
All offices and servers are wind powered, so that those using iPage services can be assured that they are not contributing to the environmental crisis and that all services they purchase or use are actually helping the environment, since for every kilowatt hour the company uses they purchase twice the amount in renewable energy certificates, which is roughly the equivalent of planting 244 acres of trees. This minimizes the company's carbon footprint and also allows customers to display the iPage Green Certificate on their website.
This not only helps the environment, but it can also help the business, as polls show that more and more people are becoming more eco-conscious and would prefer to do business with companies which share the same concerns. By providing eco-friendly web hosting services, iPage allows business owners to show that they also support the environment and this can boost sales or visitors to the site. This has been an effort on the part of the Endurance International Group (EIG) which owns the company, and founder and CEO, Thomas Gorny.
Aside from the unique Green approach to providing web services, iPage is also one of the most competitive online web hosts since they offer superior features and services and very reasonable prices for the numerous packages they make available.
