I have been using GreenGeeks for over a year now. They are always up, really good with customer service… but the sites I am hosting with them load so slow.
Keep up the good work and stay green! Greengeeks are a great host and I hope the will become even better and cheaper!
Love them, perfect for blogs and even bigger sites. Green rules!
