{article} Why is this web hosting so cheap? Unlimited everything eco-friendly ?]

Question by John S: Why is this web hosting so cheap? Unlimited everything eco-friendly ?
I found this website hosting provider: http://thebest-deals.info/thinkhost

They say they have unlimited space/bandwidth/domains/email etc… plus they’re hosted on an environmentally friendly source powered by solar/wind energy, and its only 7.95 a month, how is this possible?

I found a $ 20 off coupon code: THINKHOST20 so i wanted to see what you guys thought before I signed up

Answer by joe.attaboy
They don’t host anything on wind and solar power. They can’t. Just read the page they post about how wonderful they are…that couldn’t put solar panels or a wind turbine at their site…so they use the regular electrical grid, but they purchase something called a “tag.” Apparently, for each tag they by, some solar or wind generator unit produces power that’s added to the grid.

So, according to this theory, they don’t actually *use* alternative sources of power…they just give money to something else to relieve their guilt. You know, like buying carbon offsets.

Smells like BS to me.
