These days, I own a few websites. But before I had any, when I was first thinking about creating my first website, as soon as I saw GreenGeeks I was super excited! My first website is this one, ecoculturevillage.org, and is about eco-friendliness and a lot of other good stuff. The first thing I noticed about GreenGeeks was that they are 300% energy efficient. For every amperage they pull from the grid, they invest 3 times that in the form of renewable energy. GreenGeeks is the world’s #1 green energy web hosting provider. I knew I had found my web host company.
My only hope at that point was whether they were any good with respect to three things I value most from a web host company… quality of service, customer service, and price.
Suffice it to say, I have been with GreenGeeks for over 10 years. Here is why:
Quality of Service

All that said, it wasn’t until I created for the first time a website for a client, that I realized how awesome GreenGeeks hosting is.
My client had a real piece of work of a website for his business that he wanted made better. As I said, it was a real piece of work… an absolute html horror story. I showed my client some of my sites and told him I would like to start from scratch. He agreed, and so I did. His site looks great, in fact, it is beautiful and functions flawlessly.
Then I began to run into issues. Not technical issues with the site, but web host company limitations that would cost more money to get around. I won’t name the web host company, but I will say that it was, and still is, a very popular domain name registrar that has relatively recently gotten into web hosting.
I wanted to add another email to the site… but that was going to cost extra!
Unlimited emails are included with GreenGeeks hosting.
I wanted to make a backup of the site… but to easily do so would cost extra!
Site backups are a breeze with GreenGeeks hosting.
I wanted to add SSL certification… yet another cost!
SSL certrification via Let’s Encrypt is free with GreenGeeks.
I wanted to contact customer service to see what was preventing me from accessing the site via FTP, and the only recourse I had was via a phone number the message of which told me there would be an almost 10 minute wait.
With GreenGeeks I can open a chat box and be in instant contact with knowledgeable and friendly customer service.
I spoke with my client about migrating his website to GreenGeeks, and I think we will when his current billing cycle comes to an end.
Save yourself all the trouble and help protect our environment. Host your website with GreenGeeks! You’ll be glad you did. After 10 years, I still am!
