Lately I’ve had a lot of problems with one of my hosting companies, Dreamhost. The service is just about the worst you can possibly have, the server load is miserable, the downtime is deplorable. It’s all got me thinking about how web hosting could be so much better.
It seems to me Web hosting is a black hole of money. All of us webmasters who run websites from small busines owners to big companies need reliable hosting. How could we utilize reliable hosting and also make a social difference in the world.
1) Use a reseller account from a Green Hosting Company
2) Utilize the overhead profits give back to third world countries
3) Encourage hosting clients to publicize their green host, that helps out on social causes
4) Provide better service than the other guys
Running a server company can be mind blowing, but being a reseller isnt as bad as you might think especially if you limit your services to mostly blogs. Plus its a great way to make a difference in the world and spend more time working at home. Besides who wants to think about how much energy their website is sucking down after getting TechCrunched or making it to the front page of Digg.
