Anyone aware of any asp.net hosting services out there that are "green": carbon-neutral, powered by renewables etc..The one that I did find that was at all affordable is aiso.net, but their asp.net package databases are Access, not my optimal choice. I'd
prefer MS SQL, but MySQL is do-able.
Thanks for any tips!

It's seems that "green" become more and more popular. :)

Greenwebhost.net / Solarwebhost.net
Greenesthost (Not sure they do Windows)
But even Rackspace is going green now. I think Pair Networks is now green, as is Dreamhost. HostPapa is another.
Depends also on how Green you want.

Sugan, thanks for the response, but I checked all these and none seem to feature carbon neutral or green power hosting.
Jeff, checked all those and the only one that was an affordable shared vrtual server with asp.net seemed to be aiso; but their idea of a database is MS access (yuk). It's seems to me there's a niche available out there for an affordable but serious asp.net
host featuring a green powered data center. Hmmm..

Does it affect asp.net or ms sql speed in any way?! I don't think so.
By the way, I've read a document signed by 21 professors and they state there is no Global Warming now. Moreover 1 volcano produces more carbon gases than all human factories/plants altogether. And I don't think web hosting providers produce even 0.1% of

You didn't ask for Green and Affordable. Not many like that, you have to really want green and be willing to sacrifice for it. Probably the major reason most of the world doesn't care about green hosting.
Last I checked, buying Green power was prohibitive and generating it yourself even more costly. You might look for a host that is reducing its carbon footprint but possibly not using green power, there's less sacrifice that way.

Global warming exists. But not in a "Help, the sky is falling!" version that many groups would have you believe. Climatological shift is normal. And the largest effect on global warming/greenhouse gases/ozon layer/etc. happens to be the natural evaporation
of seawater. Of course, that doesn't me we shouldn't try to help a little...

Thanks for that additional input, guys. Although, I have to add that I strongly disagree with your positions on the climate. And, as such, I hope to do what i can to offset my impact; for me, you, and our kids.
