Environmentally friendly hydro hosting is now available!
GreenMedInfo.com is truly much more than a unique database or premier research website. We are currently running our site on alternative hosting. We believe that green hosting begins with personal healing and planetary transformation which are inseparable -- which is why we chose early on to do all our development and hosting through energy sources least harmful to our environment. GreenMedInfo, like all green living things, was borne from solar-power. Our one-of-a-kind, open source, natural medicine database was created entirely through energy drawn from solar panels in Southern California over the past year.
While we loved being 100% solar-powered, our growing traffic and membership base has forced us to look for a more powerful and stable hosting environment, which is why we are now officially announcing our switch to a hydropower platform located in Canada.
Moreover, because we know from personally experience how difficult it is to obtain reliable, inexpensive, and fast hosting on green energy, we have decided to partner up with a hosting provider in order to offer the same green hosting environment to all our loyal fans.* Your hosting contributions will help to offset our own server costs so that we may continue to offer free access to our growing user base, as well as fulfill our desire to share a great service in which we truly believe in.
We find the various transitions we have taken since our inception in 2009 to be quite poetic. We have never advertised (the equivalent of using fertilizer) to grow our fan base. In a grassroots-driven (read: word-of-mouth) and sustainable fashion our site has grown organically and now ranks among to the topmost 8K+ sites in the United States -- call it People-Powered Growth.

*Note: Your account will not exist on the exact same physical server that GMI lives on, as our site requires the resources of a dedicated server, and has fluctuating needs. Your website would be sitting on a system of equal power, but better suited to handling multiple sites. If you require a server of comparable resource requirements to GMI, we would create for you your very own server to ensure the greatest amount of uptime, and ensure you optimal speed.
Over the years, GreenMedInfo.com has been required to move around the country from data center to data center due to its ever increasing hardware requirements. As you may already know, Greenmedinfo.com is a website which makes use of a powerful, dynamically updated database which requires copious amounts of resources to run and operate efficiently.
Currently, our website resides at a data center in Canada. We found this data center after performing a long search for a powerful and efficient data center which runs off a green center, which we refer to as Hydro Hosting. Hydro Hosting is a powerful and efficient source of green energy. We are quite familiar with the difficult process of locating a data center which allows you to safely and securely reduce ones carbon footprint, and having been spending our time and energy over the past few months building out and setting up cloud technology to safely and efficiently host additional websites.
Also, by hosting with us, it you are helping to provide a stable foundation which increases our server resources, and in effect, help GreenMedInfo.com run continually faster and more efficiently, enabling us to continue to provide the world free access to well over 19,000 article abstracts.
That being said, if you are interested in having your website, e-mail server, or dedicated VPS hosted with us and making use of green energy, view the currently available instant hosting options or if you have questions, please contact Cameron (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any further details. You may also contact us and ask questions using the GreenMedInfo.com contact form.
If you are unsure whether or not we are capable of hosting your current website platform, please feel free to e-mail any and all questions to Cameron concerning these issues. Additionally, if you have any further questions, or are worried about the migration process, we would be happy to assist you and ensure that you have little to no downtime during the process.
