We believe GreenGeeks.com is the best Drupal hosting company around and their reliability is a big reason why we believe this. Green Geeks reliability is one of the hallmarks of their service and the test sites we have with them run and load ultra fast. Site Green Geek's client sites run on some of the best hardware you can find in web hosting. They use Dual Quad Core Intel Xeon processors with RAID 10 storage arrays which provide maximum redundancy and performance. The servers are connected to the internet through 100Mpbs switches through a BGP4 Gigabit connection via multiple Fiber GigE Tier 1 Backbones. In all this means that the servers and their client sites are running very fast, with minimal "if any" downtime.
When you look for a web hosting company one of the most important decision factors is how well a company can support their clients. Green Geeks support is excellent. They have 3 tiers of support which makes working with them very efficient. The support is English speaking North American based and you can reach them 24x7x365 by chat or email and 9 am - midnight ETS Monday - Friday by phones and 9am - 8pm Saturday and Sunday by phones. In addition Green Geeks has built out a complete FAQ guide and video tutorial series for DRUPAL customers, and they have a 1 click Drupal install. If you are looking to switch to them from another hosting provider they will also move your existing web site for you for free.
As we have mentioned before in the reliability section, Green Geeks network is incredibly robust. They use a BGP4 Gigabit connection via multiple Fiber GigE Tier 1 Backbones and is routed by the top of the line Juniper edge routers and aggregated through Cisco and Juniper switches. they have access to most major bandwidth providers, selected for their complimentary routes to other providers. The network gear is completely redundant all the way to the uplinks at the cabinets, to the providers and the entry points at the facility.
First off the servers are completely configured for the latest and next versions of Drupal to ensure that their customers can install and use the latest Drupal versions for better security and the latest functionality. The servers are incredibly fast they use state of the art servers with RAID 10 cards to provide the best performance and redundancy. The CPU on each server is 8 GB DDR3 Memory so that the servers speed is never compromised by any single or group of bad users and they have 24x7x365 server monitoring to make sure that the efficiency of each server is running at optimal levels at all times.
Green Geeks offers their hosting service at an exceptional value. Are there cheaper plans to be found with other hosting providers, absolutely, however when you look at the difference in the service quality, the customer service (Green Geeks does not outsource overseas while others do) as well as the server speed & reliability do you really think that a few extra dollars savings are worth all the headaches? Green Geeks offers their service for $6.95 for the 2 yr plan, $7.95 for the 1 yr plan and they gave us a coupon (EnvisionDrupal) which will give new clients a whopping $30 off of their annual or 2yr hosting packages, so you really can save to make sure Green Geeks is right for you.
