What do you like best about GreenGeeks?

GreenGeeks has competitive pricing for the service they offer. The Ecosite Starter starts at $3.95 a month triennially and comes with unlimited web space, unlimited data transfer, a free domain, and various application support such as WordPress. If you are a beginner, they offer starter site builder which you can request for free.

What do you dislike about GreenGeeks?

Although GreenGeeks advertise themselves as a Canadian hosting service with servers in Toronto, they do not have Canadian pricing and charge all plans in USD. The file manager in cPanel only allows selection of files and lacks a method of uploading whole folders at once. FTP account setup and connection is required for better file management which is fine but adds to the number of interfaces I have to work with when managing my sites. There are also hidden clauses not apparent when looking at their plans such as their excessive usage policy: "A hosting account is considered using "Excessive amounts of resources" when it consumes 100% of 1 CPU core, and/or 1 GB Memory, 20 concurrent connections and/or 75,000 files also known as "Computing Resources", and/or "Resources", and/or "Resource Usage"."

What problems is GreenGeeks solving and how is that benefiting you?

I have a startup company that needs reliable web hosting and GreenGeeks offers great uptime and nightly backups.

"Great customer service and uptime"
What do you like best about GreenGeeks?

The hosting is fast. Every time I have needed support I have received nearly instant response from the chat agent. The bandwith and resource allocation work great for most sites using wordpress and drupal. Email setup through cpanel works great and is really nice to have unlimited storage on the primary domain on my reseller account.

What do you dislike about GreenGeeks?

The firewall and IP blocking rules are a little strict for shared and reseller hosting. One of my clients needed to access their web app simultaneously with about 12-15 users. There was no performance issues with the hosting, but the firewall kept blocking their ip address. Greengeeks was not able to lift this rule for this client on reseller hosting. I noticed that on the new plans for reseller hosting they have changed from limited storage space and unlimited cpanel accounts to a new model. The new model allows for unlimited storage space but the plan pricing is based on number of cpanel accounts. I don't forsee any issues with this model for things like prototyping, but I believe it will increase costs for the reseller as new clients come on board.

What problems is GreenGeeks solving and how is that benefiting you?

Instant cpanel creation for prototyping websites and web apps. I'm able to have nearly unlimited projects in different stages of development with reseller hosting. We have been using email through the reseller hosting for our company, as well as some of our clients. I think that the ability to set up email without any additional monthly costs is great

"Great host for small to medium sizes business"
What do you like best about GreenGeeks?

They have a good solid support, online chat as well as phone support that you can contact at all hours.

What do you dislike about GreenGeeks?

They no longer have a managed VPS solution. They recently removed it. It was not all their fault, based on the price changes by cpanel which is 3rd party server management software.

What problems is GreenGeeks solving and how is that benefiting you?

I use greengeeks for a shared hosting solution for most of my clients. Easy to use, solid pricing and phone support for my clients.

"Environmentally Responsible Hosting"
What do you like best about GreenGeeks?

We strive to be environmentally conscious and sustainability was one of the things we wanted in our website hosting.

What do you dislike about GreenGeeks?

I've seen the website down for no reason at all... the only reason I noticed was Google actually sent me an alert. It only happened once and they fixed the problem quickly when I contacted them, but I don't know how many potential visitors were turned away.

What problems is GreenGeeks solving and how is that benefiting you?

A website host is a basic necessity, but the bonus of being environmentally-friendly helps maintain our integrity by showing that we make an effort to stand by our green values.
