Thank you for providing a link to this article. I've been studying several hosting services that say they are 'green'. Most are trying to use windpower. I was unaware that traditional PCs could be replaced by VDIs in the datacenter.

I'm not sure how you could really increase sales on your website, just because it has Green hosting. Do you put some type of icon on your website? Or do you just make one of your marketing programs around the fact that you have a green website hoster. And remember, just because the webhoster is green, doesn't mean the website owner is running a 'green' shop.
