    Almost a year ago, when I started developing web sites, I chose to use Greenhostit because of their commitment to using renewable energy. However, if you asked me why I would recommend the company today, I would have to say that it is their commitment to customer satisfaction. Their technical support is prompt, competent and patient, and their support team has personally not only helped me with technical strategies but also provided me with valuable guidance in how to structure my new freelance business. As someone with 15 years experience in providing software solutions to Global 2000-size companies, I can assure you that nothing is more important to a company’s success than satisfied customers, and Greenhostit scores high on that scale.

    I like the idea that they use a green data center instead of only purchasing carbon credits like most green web hosts do. Their support staff is excellent too. For those reasons I like Green Host It for my business website.

    LTlov's interest in GreenHostIt originated with the exciting idea of being "green" on the internet along with the novel idea of a green data center hosting our website. I now know GreenHostIt is also extremely reliable and have come to trust their uptime, web applications, and technical support. As president of LTlov, I recommend for anyone looking to start a website or move a currently active website to an environmentally-friendly data center.

    Jim McKinley, Kin-Tec CEO and Client of Green Host It

    We had our site hosted by another company for about 15 years. Our options were limited - think what the internet was like 15 years ago. The price was high, and we always had problems keeping everything current, because making revisions had to be done through the hosting company (when they had time, of course). With the tools on GreenHostit we have completely revised and expanded our site. Support during the transition was excellent and our monthly outlay is about 1/2 of what we were paying the previous provider for about 1/10 the features and flexibility. Our inquiry rate has more than doubled already. And doing all this with a 'Green' hosting company is great! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GreenHostit!

    We love hosting our sites with Green Host It. The control panel is simple and easy to use, and the uptime has been excellent. We especially love that we are hosting our sites with a company that runs their servers on 100% renewable energy. It makes us feel good!

    I have known the founder of GreenHostIt for 25 years. She developed the company because most web hosting companies use Data Centers that are coal fired. They produce inordinant amounts of Co2 and often cause lung cancer. GreenHostIt however, is powered by renewable energy. It is the only responsible choice for a web hosting company!
