GreenGeeks was founded in 2008 by Trey Gardner, who has put his vast experience in several large hosting companies in the creation of GreenGeeks. Trey’s background is important, as he has worked with eight different web hosting companies, including iPowerweb, iPage, StartLogic, Dot5Hosting, Globat, Lunarpages, Hostpapa.

This company knows very well how to attract customers, with a particular blend of friendliness and advanced technology presented in a very accessible way.

Today, Trey Gardner and his team of professionals have made GreenGeeks a healthy, stable, competitive company with a solid infrastructure.

Initially, the company faced many challenges like any other startup. However, it took only a few years for GreenGeeks to fully establish itself. The company’s main competitive advantage is the quality of its services.

The company is based in North America and has served more than 40,000 customers with more than 500,000 websites. It is an environmentally friendly supplier, has dedicated itself to leaving a positive energy footprint and replaces the energy consumed by three times the energy credits used.

GreenGeeks is a very effective and efficient web hosting company, if you are concerned about environmental impact, GreenGeeks is a good choice due to its 300% ecological commitment.

They have reliable servers, first-class security measures, automated backups, and a plethora of support options and even the ability to use dedicated WordPress hosting.


Pricing, Hosting Plans

Available Plans:

GreenGeeks is very competitively priced compared to other hosts that use their entire SSD storage infrastructure. We have no problem paying a dollar or two more per month for upgraded hardware, especially with all the other additional features that GreenGeeks includes in the hosting packages.

GreenGeek prices seem cheap, but you need to sign up for a period of three years to enjoy these prices, you can buy a term of one month, one year, two years or three years, but you are really motivated to buy the longer terms.

With GreenGeeks, you can test your hosting risk-free for 30 days, your satisfaction is guaranteed or you will receive a full refund without questions on most hosting plans. In case you are not satisfied with your service, you can request a full refund. After the cancellation process you will remain the owner of the selected domain name.

Its main offering is the shared hosting plan and wordpress for beginners, but this can be expanded to a customized hosting environment perfect for your site. There are other high-end plans available such as VPS and dedicated servers. GreenGeeks manages to differentiate itself by offering unique scalable hosting, affordable hosting packages and robust WordPress hosting.

Cancellation and Refunds

If you decide to cancel your GreenGeeks account, you can easily do so using the online cancellation form. If you need to request a refund, it’s a little more effort as you must log in to the control panel and create a support ticket. It is important to request a cancellation and a refund.

Features

Respectful and environmentally friendly

GreenGeeks is a truly green company. GreenGeeks claims it offers “300% green web hosting powered by renewable energy”. It is the world’s number one green energy web hosting provider. As a brand, GreenGeeks emphasizes its commitment to the environment.

They buy 3 times the wind energy credits to offset the energy used by their services to power their website.
They replace more than 615,000 kWh per year. To put it in perspective, the average American consumes 12,000 kWh of electricity per year. GreenGeeks is a recognized partner of EPA’s Green Power that works with environmental foundations to purchase wind energy credits.

SSL Security

GreenGeeks SSL is a good choice for the development of e-commerce stores and companies that conduct online transactions. SSL protection provides unparalleled security for the transfer of all data from a web page and through servers. All plans come with a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate. You can also purchase a premium GlobalSign Wildcard SSL.

GreenGeeks Control Panel

Unlike other providers who offer their customers a proprietary or custom GreenGeeks control panel, it gives your users the latest version of cPanel regardless of their hosting plan. There is no doubt that it is the most popular type of control panel on the market, which simplifies the life of many webmasters.

Developer Tools

GreenGeeks offers a set of tools for both beginners and developers. Well, given the name GreenGeeks, that’s to be expected. In addition to support for PHP up to version 7.1, there are the usual database features such as FTP access and MySQL.

In addition, you get SSH and SFTP access to upload your files securely, and if you are looking for advanced scripting languages, the latest versions of Perl and Python are supported there. In addition, for developers, you have access to Git, WP-Cli, Drush and more.

Automatic backups

With GreenGeeks you can be sure that your data is backed up every night. You don’t have to pay extra for this service (unlike other hosts) and it’s included in all plans. Remember that errors and failures can and do occur. The hardware may fail or the data may be accidentally erased.

Performance

To test the performance of GreenGeeks servers we created a WordPress test site, using the default theme and basic content for the development of the theme, including images.

According to the speed test of our website with Bitcatcha, we found that our test site loads in just under two seconds when visited from North America.

With Bitcatcha, we were able to analyze server response time around the world, New York, Los Angeles, London, Brazil, India, Singapore, Japan and Australia.

With this test, we would get a broader view of how our server responded globally to page requests.

This company is providing an exceptional server response speed that can be seen in the image below. The response speed of the GreenGeeks server is excellent as it is presented as A+.

Remember that when selecting any hosting for your website, speed plays a predominant role especially for the customer.
