The call for sustainability is growing louder in all areas of society.
So, we recently looked at what would constitute a sustainable website - if there can be such a thing after all.
We'd say that, if the following characteristics are met one can at least theoretically speak of a sustainable website:
- as few file queries as possible (in the end each query consumes power due to the CPU time used to generate and deliver the files).
- few pages or even better a one page website (same principle as with file queries, more pages = more power consumption)
- dark colors or darkmode (dark colors consume less energy to be displayed on user's devices/displays)
- "green" hosting, for example from nine.ch
