What Does the Expert say?
Reliability & Uptime
GreenGeeks guarantees a 99.9% server uptime and employs various methods to do so. Their state of the art co-location data center is home to numerous energy efficient servers with Intel Dual Quad Core processors and 100 MBPs connectivity. The data center is also equipped with dual city power grid feeds and multiple backup power generators. The company also uses a server monitoring system, which informs administrators if there are any potential threats to their servers every 10 seconds. GreenGeeks also provides customers with a 30 day money back guarantee.
GreenGeeks provides customer support 24/7/365 via ticket system (email) and live chat for all of their hosting packages. Their phone service is available from 9am EST until midnight during the weekdays and from 9am until 8pm on the weekend. Instead of outsourcing their technical support services, GreenGeeks only employs Americans and Canadians on their support staff. Hopefully they’ll be able to offer 24/7 customer service by phone soon enough. In addition to contact customer support directly, customers have full access to GreenGeeks Help Center which includes informative articles from their knowledgebase, step-by-step video tutorials, and a list of the most frequently asked questions.
