Green Geeks Review:

GreenGeeks was established in 2006 by web hosting Guru and current President/CEO, Trey Gardner. Since then, Gardner hired the best brains in the web hosting and web development business and today, the Green Geeks’ Management team has over 40 years of collective web hosting experience. GreenGeeks certainly lives up top its reputation as the world’s #1 ‘Green’ Web hosting company. And ‘Green’ is the new, color and mantra of all serious governments, environmentalists and businessmen around the world today So, what makes GreenGeeks so different than the millions of other web hosting providers in the world? The answer lies in the 100% renewable resource that Green Geeks uses to power their office equipment, office space and ALL their servers … Wind Power. What’s more, GreenGeeks has proved that it has the ability to replace three times the energy used by their servers with wind power.
Green Geeks is a leading hosting company, which is famous because they are providing 300% wind powered hosting service. How is this possible? Green Geeks, like any other hosting company pulls energy from the grid, because they servers’s need to have a constant power flow to be able to provide the maximum up-time. In order to compensate the power that they pull from the grid, GreenGeeks are purchasing wind energy credits for the consumed power. So if they are consuming 1X power from the grid, GreenGeeks will pull back 3X wind energy to the grid; and this is why they can say that GreenGeeks is 300% wind energy powered.
If you consider how passionately GreenGeeks is committed to the environment … imagine how passionately committed they are to providing customers with clean, green and premium quality web hosting solutions.

GreenGeeks Reliability:

GreenGeeks guarantee 99.9 percent server up-time and a non-stop 24/7 available support via email tickets, telephone and live chat. They are ready to solve any major problem within 10 minutes. GreenGeeks really care about their clients and never let them down. They are dedicated to help their customers when they need it, this is why many small business owners are using their services.
For a company so concerned with environmental issues, reliability in all aspects of GreenGeeks’ operation could be taken for granted. GreenGeeks’ rapidly growing clientele, who are equally committed to promoting green issues, will bear witness to this.

GreenGeeks Value:

GreenGeeks is not the cheapest web hosting in the industry, but you can be sure that it worth using their services. Their shared plan has all the features that a small to medium sized business website needs: unlimited disk space and data transfer, allow to create unlimited email accounts and MySQL databases, free domain name is available with every new account, free and easy to use site builder, free advertising credits and lot of more.
GreenGeeks has recently change their monthly price from $6.95 to $4.95 ( Great News). Green Geeks’ $6.95/month price may be considered competitive rather than the cheapest price on the market. However, unlike others who grab you with a great, low introductory price (and then surprise you with an unjustified contract renewal price), Green Geeks will renew your contract at the SAME $4.95/month. And herein IS the difference.

GreenGeeks Uptime/downtime:

GreenGeeks consistently delivers an uptime of 99.9%, a fact borne out by the numerous GreenGeeks customers over an extended period of time. While most other web hosting companies claim a similar uptime percentage, the difference that GreenGeeks makes lies in the energy-saving efficiency and non-polluting, wind power that helps customers gain the uptime percentage they claim.

Statement from GreenGeeks Regarding Uptime:
Server uptime is of great importance to our company. We understand that this is essential for our clients and we take uptime very seriously. Our robust hardware and world class data facility as well as the lower amount of clients we have on a server and our pro-active/reactive service monitoring permits us to run at absolute efficiency and maintain our great service record. In the event that a hardware failure is beyond recoverable we have backups of our clients’ data and we are able to get their web sites back up quickly and efficiently.

GreenGeeks was honored with the “Best Green Hosting Company” award for 2008, by a prominent web hosting directory. This top award was in recognition of Green Geeks exceptional reputation for customer service, and its commitment to providing green web hosting solutions of the highest standards.

GreenGeeks Cpanel:

cPanel is what GreenGeeks use for their shared hosting accounts. This hosting control panel is the most popular and reliable in the industry having lots of great features that everyone will need: domains and website management, emails and database administration, file manager, website analyzer with traffic statistics, Fantastico script for easy script installation and management, and many others
