Green Geeks purchases the most reliable and efficient servers to ensure 99.9% up time for all the sites they host. In addition, Greengeeks.com does not allow any one server to be overloaded with customers, a move that ensures servers do not become clogged with too much traffic. The data centers that house Green Geeks’ servers are staffed and monitored at all hours to catch any early signs of trouble, and in the event of catastrophic failures that cannot be avoided, Green Geeks offers all customers free nightly backups to ensure their data is safe in the event of a server error.
What sets Greengeeks.com apart from the rest is their commitment to the environment. Green Geeks work constantly to make sure that their carbon footprint is minimized if not eliminated all together. Given the massive amount of energy needed for servers and other equipment to remain powered on at all hours of the day, Green Geeks’ data centers consume a large amount of energy from traditional energy production sources such as fossil fuels. However, Green Geeks carefully monitors their energy consumption and at the end of every month the company purchases three times the amount of energy they use from wind power plants and feeds it back into the power grid to replace what they used.
But for the folks at Greengeeks.com it’s more than just replacing used energy. Everything is done with an eye on conservation and protection of the environment. Green Geeks pushes employees to bring home cooked meals for everyone at the office to share, cutting down on waste from takeout meals, supports carpooling, and even avoids the expense (financially and environmentally) of moving new employees by allowing good potential workers to work remotely from home if they are not located near an office.
As of 2005 the World Wide Web and the computers and servers that support it produced an amount of energy equal to 14 major power plants. Experts believe that by 2020 the industry could surpass the airline industry as a major environmental polluter. Going green is vital for current and future generations and the folks at Greengeeks.com understand this and have adopted responsible, sustainable business practices without sacrificing quality service for customers.
