How to Find Progressive, Green Hosting for Your Websites

As I've mentioned before, I plan on moving this blog and creating other websites as my knowledge about web design improves. I am currently reading articles at Associated Content to learn simple, low-cost ways to build sites. If you would like to view these articles just visit my profile at Digg.com!
Since I am just learning, I will lay this out so that others who are just learning can follow along easily. In order to build sites one needs web hosting. Hosting companies provide you the server space and bandwidth necessary to build as many sites as you'd like. Since the inception of this blog I have been carefully researching companies. There are a lot out there and I needed to make sure that I found someone who catered to their clients and had excellent support. I am also interested in a company that is eco-concious and affordable. It is important to me that any site that hosts my blog and other websites be progressive both socially and environmentally. It takes a huge amount of server power to host so many domains, and that equals a lot of electricity.
I have found that ThinkHost is the perfect fit for me. Not only do they have a great support package for us newbies but they are also green; getting their energy through wind and solar power. Socially, they favor grassroots causes, providing no-cost hosting to environmental groups and community non-profits. They have no shareholders and no debt. The revenue made is distributed among the staff, goes back into the business, and is donated through their free web hosting. With no corporate "fat cats" they are free from pressure to compromise for the sake of profit. Their staff is active in environmental, social and political issues as well.

Because everyone is trying to do their part to be green I have provided a link to ThinkHost below so that you can get started too!
