Cool Green Gadget: SolarKindle Lighted Cover

SolarKindle Lighted Cover Solar Powered Kindle Case

A lot of people are using Tablet’s and e-readers, and the more they use them, the more power they draw from the grid to charge them up again. That’s what makes the SolarKindle Lighted Cover such a cool green gadget. With Amazon Kindle being the hottest e-reader on the planet, SolarFocus has designed the world’s first solar-powered e-reader cover. The cover features an environmentally friendly design with a lightweight, flexible and high-grade solar panel built right into the cover. Now you can keep your kindle charged up without having to plug it in! It also has a built-in LED lamp to make night time reading a breeze.

Some stats on the charge: 1 hour of solar charge gives you 3 days of uninterrupted use. The USB/solar dual charging reserve battery provides backup equal to months of unplugged reading time. The cost ranges from $39 to $90 on Amazon. Not a bad trade off to get protect and charge your Kindle!

 

Increased Performance & Reliability

What a summer! Upgrades galore!

One of the unique things about GreenGeeks web hosting is that we’re always looking for ways to provide our customers with the best possible hosting experience. This is what sets us apart from the competition. I’ve worked at other hosting providers where there were no advancements. It was boring and it really affected the customers’ chance of succeeding online. Not at GreenGeeks though, we’re always hungry for more. We’re always testing new hardware, new software, new security tools, etc. Anything that would benefit our customers.

While we’re always making advancements, this summer was particularly a busy one. We’ve enabled Dual PHP support, Google Apps integration, One-Click SSL activation’s and more.

The most notable upgrade was our hardware upgrades. We have upgraded all of our customers to the latest Intel Xeon processors, increased physical RAM on the servers and upgraded our storage array’s. What this means is increased performance and reliability for your websites and best of all, at no additional cost to you.

Have you noticed a difference in performance? Comment below!

 

Go Faster with EcoSite Premium

EcoSite PremiumOur Ecosite package is pretty amazing because it gives you so many great features like unlimited disk space, bandwidth, and email addresses. But what about our customers who are running more robust systems that need greater RAM, CPU, and process resources? In the past, we have moved these customers up to our VPS hosting packages, which have served them well. But some customers need more resources, but aren’t quite ready to move up to a VPS plan. We decided to launch our Ecosite Premium hosting package for those customers who need greater resources, without any change in the way they manage their site. Ecosite Premium features:

  • Double the RAM, CPU, and Processes of our Ecosite packages
  • Fewer customers per server for even greater site performance
  • Direct access to our nightly backup servers to restore files at any time
  • Free dedicated IP
