1. Tell us a little bit about your business and your duties in it.
Our company name is GreenGeeks and we are the leading provider of green energy web hosting. My name is Trey Gardner and I am the CEO. My duties include monitoring the management of the company and ensuring that we offer the best web hosting around.
2. It is a very competitive market out there, why do you think people should choose you?
We offer great web hosting products ranging from shared to dedicated, domain registrations, SSL certificates and more. I am convinced our customer service is one of the best in the market, which is why we have been ranked one of the best out there. In addition to this, a study was made that by 2020, the web hosting industry will be as big a polluter as the aviation industry. We allow customers to be Carbon negative, which means that we put more back than we take in the form of wind energy. People should choose us because we are a large web hosting company and we are also committed to the environment and our society.
3. In this pool of tools and ways to promote what marketing strategies do you use?
We use a boat load of marketing strategies that help us reach the masses. We are really going to social media and make a big push there.
4. What are the main products in your business?
We offer Shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting and are soon to offer dedicated servers.
5. How different is hosting Business today compared to what it was 5 years ago?
There has been a great improvement on the usability of open source scripts. It used to be a problem for customers to install things like WordPress. Now, for example, with GreenGeeks you are able to install WordPress with a single click and also get it updated with 1 click when an update is available. Second, it just became more competitive as any young industry would.
6. What can we expect from your business in the near future?
As I mentioned earlier, we will introduce dedicated servers soon. We also work on a boat load of other cool features, which we continue to bring out as time progresses.
7. Describe your business with only three words.
300% green hosting
8. Why did you decide to invest in being green?
I have always been a person who cares passionately about the environment, and having become aware of the impact our industry has on the environment, I decided to go up to the record and set a good example. We can be green and still offer better quality web hosting that other non-green hosts can.
9. Can you tell us what measures are you taking to stay green?
We use a variety of ways to stay green, for example, we use the latest energy-efficient Intel processors, maximize the computing resources we have, we minimize carbon emissions by hiring home-based staff, and we also buy replacing 3 times the energy , we consume in the form of wind credits through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation for all our servers and staff workstations.
