GreenGeeks Web Hosting Review
I must admit I am not so interested about the green energy used by the hosting companies. I mean, I am a little, just like you do, but you won’t save the equatorial forest just by using the services of such company. And who bothers to check them, anyway? This is why the “green” current of GreenGeeks does not impress me a bit. However, some other services of this company attracted me, and this is why I think I can give you a complete opinion about this hosting site.
$3.95 a month is an average price, but I must tell you that GreenGeeks gives you a lot more features than other hosting companies having the same price. The site is well structured, having the three main categories needed by the clients: Web hosting for new webmasters having a site or two, Reseller hosting for people that want to get into this business, and VPS hosting for people having powerful sites or a network of websites. I have tried the web hosting and the VPS hosting features. I am not in the reseller business, so I guess you will have to check that by yourself. However, let’s see what GreenGeeks offers you for $3.95 a month.
|Number of Domains ( to be use )||Unlimited|
|Free Site Migration||Yes|
|Free Site Builder||Yes|
Yes, I know. For a beginner’s site, giving unlimited bandwidth is a little too much, as a bandwidth limited to 250 kb/second is enough. However, you will realize the importance of this aspect once you would have to send newsletters to 3000 clients from a single click. Overall, a great package for less than $4 a month.
This is my favorite part, and even if you are not familiar with VPS hosting, you will surely need a service of this kind once your site has more than 1000 visitors a day, or you have a network of more than 10 sites. GreenGeeks has 5 main packages for VPS hosting, and I must say those packages cover all the needs of an advanced webmaster that knows his way around the internet. The packages contain unlimited subdomains, web 2.0 addresses, and a guaranteed 99.9 % uptime service. All the services are available with the easy-to-use cPanel.
I have a reproach to GreenGeeks from this point of view. Their customer service is available by phone only during the USA daylight. I am not from USA, and this is a major inconvenient. However, the customer service is available 15 hours a day, so you should have enough time to talk with them about your problems.
I specially like their automated billing system that sends a complete bill with all the details once a month, and the invoice that is generated automatically. You will also benefit from a 30-day money back guarantee feature. Considering all those aspects, I would say there is no reason for you not to try this green, reliable hosting solution called GreenGeeks.
