  • Introduction

    Among the many sites offering web hosting solutions, Green Geeks stands out for its eco-friendly emphasis. The service stands up to the competition in terms of power and reliability, while simultaneously holding to its claim of “three hundred percent green” alternatives for web hosting. 

    Green Geeks services include individual web hosting, reseller hosting, and VPS (Virtual Private Servers) hosting. Using a service that actually boasts a negative carbon footprint, websites and hosting providers can become certified Green.
  • Features

    The driving philosophy behind Green Geeks is the eco-friendly approach to energy use. Citing studies that prove how drastically web servers draw on power sources, Green Geeks is exclusively dedicated to eradicating its carbon footprint. For every unit of energy used from the grid, Green Geeks pays for triple that number of wind energy credits. 

    That purchased wind energy goes back into the grid, meaning in essence that your server’s energy is not only wind-driven, but funds the production of additional renewable energy. Your website’s carbon footprint won’t be carbon neutral, but actually carbon negative.
    Web hosting services available for individuals and businesses include the following features:
    Unlimited amount of online disk storage.
    Unlimited support for secure online emails with POP3 or IMAP security. Emails include forwarding, auto-response, Spam protection, and unlimited number of accounts with access through webmail providers.
    Unlimited hosting of domains, and free migration of an existing site, coupled with unlimited gigabytes of site transfer or data transfer. Unlimited number of parked domains, sub domains, and add-on domains.
    Unlike most services, which offer a free domain name only for the first year, Green Geeks promises a free domain for the life of the service.
    Databases using MySQL and CGI, as well as access through FTP and Shell access.
    Script installers include Fantastico and Softaculous. Customizable elements include custom designed error pages and cronjobs.  Free and available website scripts can be integrated, including form-mail scripts, guestbooks, WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, mailing lists, Mambo, Moodle, PHP, Python, Perl, Javascript and DHTML, Flash and Shockwave, Bulletin Board, and more.
    Free site promotion is available through marketing credits and search engine submission.
    E-commerce is supported through SSL secure servers, along with online shopping cart integration such as OS Commerce shopping cart, Zencart, and Agora shopping cart.
    Multimedia support enables online streaming audio and video, real-time video and audio, and media like Flash, Midi files, Macromedia Shockwave, and customized MIME types.
    Set-up of a new website is free and instantaneous, with start-up wizards available for beginners.
    Reseller Hosting provides five tiers of packages, with numbers of resale accounts ranging from ten to two hundred fifty.
    At all levels, the reseller packages include these features:
    Unlimited disk space.
    Unlimited bandwidth.
    Free use of the Site Builder design tool for clients.
    Free website migration for existing sites.

    VPS Hosting (Virtual Private Server Hosting) also offers five tiers of service level, all of which enjoy equal share CPU power, free control panels with web host manager control, tech support, and free migration. 
    The differences among the five levels’ features include:
    RAID-10 Storage, which ranges from twenty-five Gigabytes at the lowest level to one hundred twenty-five at the highest level.
    Bandwidth, which ranges from five hundred Gigabytes at the lowest level to one thousand five hundred at the highest level.
    Memory, which ranges from five hundred twelve Megabytes at the lowest level to two thousand forty-eight Megabytes at the highest level.
  • Control Panel

    Green Geeks web hosting provides the appropriate control panel for each level of management. Individuals or businesses availing themselves of web hosting services have the use of a cPanel for their own domain, site, and associated email accounts. In the case of reseller hosting, the reseller uses a centralized WHM control panel to administer the various client accounts, creating control panels at the lower level for each client. At each level, the control panels are comprehensive and user-friendly.

  • Pricing

    The basic hosting service is available for a mere $4.95 per month.  Green Geeks also promises clients will not be hit with any hidden fees, and they have the assurance of a money back guarantee for the first thirty days of service.

    For reseller hosting, five different levels are available with increasing numbers of resale accounts. The “Seed” level begins at twenty dollars per month (after the initial month for one penny), followed by the Sprout package at twenty-five dollars monthly, the Plant package at forty dollars monthly, the Tree package at sixty dollars monthly, and the Forest package for one hundred dollars monthly. The number of accounts with these levels range from ten resale accounts at the Seed level to two hundred fifty accounts at the Forest level.
    Virtual Private Servers, offering dedicated server performance with varying levels of memory, storage, and bandwidth. VPS packages range from five hundred twelve Megabytes at forty dollars monthly, up to two thousand forty-eight Megabytes at one hundred dollars monthly.
  • Customer Support

    Along with its eco-consciousness, Green Geeks prides itself on keeping its expert work force local to its operations. The company doesn’t outsource tech support to other countries, and clients can access tech support via email and chat at any time of day or night, every day of the year. 

    Tech support by phone is also available on a daily basis, on a schedule based in the Eastern United States time zone.
  • Reliability

    The tech team at Green Geeks has installed the latest in hardware to ensure that green clients can enjoy the same security and reliability as their less eco-friendly competitors.

  • Greengeeks Final Conclusion

    For the ecologically conscious consumer, the clear choice of web hosting provider is Green Geeks, with its carbon negative mode of operation and Green certification.
