GreenGeeks is a California-based web hosting provider that claims to offer the greenest web hosting options — the company is committed to putting back three times the amount of energy it uses to power its infrastructure through wind energy.
In addition, the company boasts around-the-clock support, a 99.9% uptime guarantee, and a 30-day money back guarantee.
Web Hosting Plans
If you're looking to get started economically, GreenGeek offers a shared hosting plan that includes everything you need to get up and running (unlike many other providers, you do not have a variety of options from which you can choose). Here's an overview of what you get with this plan:
- Support for an unlimited number of domains, so you can create as many websites as you'd like
- Unlimited SSD storage space
- Unlimited data transfer
- Free domain name registration (or transfer of your domain, if you already have one)
- Use of the GreenGeeks website builder
- Migration services
- Secure email inboxes
- Marketing and SEO tools
In addition, you can expect 24//7 technical support, a 99.9% uptime guarantee, and if you're not satisfied, a full refund if you cancel within 30 days of your purchase.
If you're using a content management system (CMS), such as WordPress, Joomla, or Drupa, you can take advantage of GreenGeek's 1-click installation feature. This also works for over 150 other apps designed to extend the functionality and feature set of your website.
Other features that make GreenGeek's offering stand out is the inclusion of security tools and 24/7 monitoring and PCI compliance.
For those on the WordPress platform, you can opt for a dedicated WordPress option instead. This plan is very similar to the basic shared hosting plan, but it comes pre-configured for WordPress sites (as well as the WordPress core pre-installed). You'll also get built-in version control, automatic WordPress core updates, and automatic daily backups.
If you're planning to get into the reseller web hosting business, GreekGeeks has five options from which you can choose. All offer unlimited cPanel accounts with data centers located in the US or Canada, so when deciding which option is best for you, you'll be comparing differences in SSD storage space and bandwidth maximums.
Regardless of which option you choose, you'll be able to offer your customers the same perks users of GreekGeek's shared plans get, brand your products as you see fit, free migration services, a web hosting billing system, and much more.
VPS Hosting Plans and Dedicated Servers
If you're looking for a plan that supports resource-intensive websites (or you're planning on rapid growth in the near future and therefore would like to start with a larger package so you don't have to upgrade later), GreenGeeks‘ VPS hosting plans or dedicated servers might be the right option for you.
