As one of my previous posts mentions, I recently had a hosting competition where I’ve put 16 different hosting companies to the test. I’ve tested their hosting plans for 30 days so I can get accurate and objective results.
One of the hosting companies that came out on top is GreenGeeks and in today’s post, I’ll go through their hosting plans and talk about their pricing and support options. I’ve also added a video review at the end so you can see how they performed against their competitors.
GreenGeeks ended up as of the top three hosting companies in my hosting competition. The company was founded and is located in California with five data centers spread out through North America and Europe. Their servers are also offset 300% by wind energy making them not only green, but carbon reducing.
They offer shared, VPS, Dedicated, and Reseller hosting services. Each of the hosting services and plans offers 30-day money back guarantee as well as 99.9% uptime. Let’s take a look at what their plans have to offer.
GreenGeeks offers 3 shared hosting plans. Each of those plans includes a free SSL certificate as well as a free domain name and a free website transfer. You’ll get access to unlimited bandwidth, disk space, and even the cheapest shared hosting plan allows you to host an unlimited number of websites.
You can install all the usual scripts such as WordPress, Joomla, and others. It’s worth mentioning that you can also take advantage of a free site builder if you’re looking for an easy way to get a simple site up and running.
Shared hosting plans are available in three different pricing tiers. The plans include all of the same features with the major differences being the number of emails you can send per hour and the performance features. Here’s how they break down.
If you’re looking to upgrade your shared hosting plan because your site is growing fast and needs more resources, VPS hosting is what you need. GreenGeeks offers 5 different VPS plans which include full root access, quick provisioning, free migration service, and proprietary VPS management portal that makes managing your virtual private server a breeze.
VPS hosting plans also include 99.9% uptime guarantee and fast SSD storage. Each server includes 4 cores and you can easily adjust the resources based on the needs of your website.
VPS plans offered by GreenGeeks differ in the amount of available memory, bandwidth and disk space. Here’s the breakdown;
The next in line are dedicated servers plans which are suitable for large websites that need serious power. Dedicated servers by GreenGeeks come in four different plans and they include server-grade Intel processors, memory, hard drives and equipment.
To sign up for a dedicated server, you’ll need to contact their sales department so they can suggest the right hosting plan for you in this category.
As mentioned earlier, dedicated servers come in 4 different plans. All of the plans include 10000 GB of bandwidth and 5 IP addresses.
If you’re thinking about getting into the reseller business, GreenGeeks has got you covered. Each of their reseller plans includes wholesale pricing which means that as the number of your hosting accounts goes up, the price for the server goes down. You’ll get free migrations and fast performance as well as the ability to sell domain names to your customers.
In addition to that, WHMCS license is included as well as custom security rules, zero-day vulnerability, real-time 24/7 security monitoring, and 24/7 customer support along with knowledge base and tutorials to help you manage your reseller account with ease.
Reseller plans also come with the ability to white-label the control panel your customers see. Lastly, you can use private nameservers for DNS that your customers will be using.
Reseller hosting services offers five different plans, each of which comes with unlimited disk space and bandwidth. They differ in the number of cPanel accounts that you can create which are limited to 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 respectively.
GreenGeeks offers 24/7 support that’s available via phone, LiveChat, and email tickets. Their website offers a support center with a detailed knowledge base and answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about hosting in general.
They also have a separate Website Tutorials section where you can find written tutorials grouped by different topics.
Below, you’ll find a video review of GreenGeeks so you can see how they stack up against the competition.
GreenGeeks performed surprisingly well in my hosting competition and ended up among top three hosting companies. Their biggest selling point (aside from offering a variety of affordable plans) is their focus on conserving energy and offering eco-friendly hosting for websites of all sizes.
If you are on the market for a new host and want a hosting company that not only cares about the environment but also offers secure, reliable, and affordable hosting, give GreenGeeks a try.
