GreenGeeks.com Web Hosting Review by WebHostingReviewPlanet.com

The web hosting industry is not an eco-friendly industry. Just think about the amount of power that is needed to power the servers at all the data centres. In fact, studies have shown that the web hosting industry will have a carbon footprint as big as that of the airline industry in year 2020.
GreenGeeks, launched in 2006, is a web hosting company that is making an effort to rectify this. How does GreenGeeks do this? For each unit of energy consumed, GreenGeeks purchases three units of wind-powered energy and send them back to the power grid to offset its carbon footprint.
Besides being eco-friendly, GreenGeeks offers features that allow customers to get their websites up and running as easy as possible.

Features

Unlimited hosting capacity – All web hosting accounts at GreenGeeks come with unlimited capacity such as unlimited disk storage, bandwidth, domain hosting, email accounts, ftp accounts, and MySQL databases.

User-friendly control panel – Customers at GreenGeeks have access to the popular and very user-friendly cPanel control panel. They can manage their websites, including adding new domains or installing new website scripts such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, etc, easily using cPanel.

Recommended Drupal hosting – GreenGeeks has been selected by Drupal professionals as the best Drupal hosting. In fact, it is listed in the hosting recommendation section of the book Drupal for Dummies.

Daily backup – All hosting accounts are backed up daily. If something goes wrong, customers can restore their data easily using the backup tool.

Top quality equipment – GreenGeeks’ Supermicro rackmountable servers are powered by Intel Quad Core Xeon processors, 24GB DDR3 RAM, 100Mbps connection to the network switches and BGP4 Gigabit backbone connection, and RAID-10 Storage Arrays. Together with the fully redundant and top of the line network gear, they provide the customers with maximum performance.

World-class data centers – GreekGeeks’ data centers are secured and reliable. To reduce the chances of power failure, the data centres have dual-city grid power feeds. This means that their power comes from two different power grids. In addition to that, the data centers are equipped with battery backup and on-site diesel generator. To prevent fire, an FM 200 server-safe fire suppression system is installed at the data centers. This system has an early pre-fire detection mechanism that detects a fire before it can do much damage to the servers. Furthermore, the data centers are secured by a biometric and key card security system, and rack-level locking mechanism.
