GreenGeeks Preview

Geeky, fast, and green? What’s not to like about it?

GreenGeeks is a host that certainly knows how to attract customers through a unique blend of friendliness and advanced technology presented in a very accessible way. And while the recent GreenGeeks reviews I checked my preliminary research on the company were somewhat controversial, I noticed that the support team and community managers are very active in addressing user issues.

To make sure how much GreenGeeks has grown, I signed up for its medium shared plan, set up a basic WordPress installation, and began thorough testing of the service.

Early on, the results are quite promising, placing GreenGeeks among the top 5 shared hosting providers here, on Hosting Tribunal.

Not only that but the company introduced some sweet summer discounts:

  • Ecosite Lite: $2.95/mo (down from $9.95/mo)
  • Ecosite Pro: $5.95/mo (down from $14.95/mo)
  • Ecosite Premium: $11.95/mo (down from $24.95/mo)

*All pricing above is based on 36-month term.

Considering the GreenGeeks has a dedicated migrations team that helps – free of charge – transfer entire sites over, the deal can hardly get any sweeter.

Stay tuned to find out whether the features, support, and pricing of this green company are up for scratch.

 

 

Nick's Verdict

Excellent uptime, reasonable speed, a decent array of features, and quality support make GreenGeeks a solid choice for small and medium sites. The pricing grows rather steeply upon renewal, though.
