GREENGEEKS HOSTING PRICING
Normally $7.95 per month, GreenGreek’s current promotional offer is for $3.96 per month. Prices can add up quickly, however, if you’re interested in paying month-to-month without a multi-year commitment. The most economical option is the three year commitment that comes with a $4.95 monthly payment. Given the current promotion, customers can take 20 percent off of that rate, and pay the $3.96 price advertised on the site’s front page. Other plans include $6.95 monthly for a two year commitment, $7.95 monthly for a one year commitment, and $14.95 plus a $15 startup fee for a month-to-month commitment. Customers in search of a deal, without a multi-year commitment, may want to explore other options, since the price tag for a month-to-month setup is nearly seven times the amount of the monthly fee for a three-year commitment. The 20 percent off promotion can be used for all of these options.
GREENGEEKS HOSTING PERFORMANCE
For prospective users, GreenGeek’s eco-friendly mission may appease environmentally conscious consumers, however, many will probably be wary as to whether or not their earth-friendly mission affects their web hosting capabilities. For what they offer, GreenGeeks features a solid product, with a robust customer service team with great availability. Users can rely on GreenGeeks for a decent web hosting experience, with a number of usability perks geared toward novices.
Uptime is generally good, and users have reported a dependable experience with the occasional minor lag during a period of heavy traffic. GreenGeeks also offers users resources like video tutorials to provide a better understanding of how to use their services.
There is one potential red flag, however. The user reviews, featured on the website, are almost too perfect. There are a few one star ratings, accompanied by stellar reviews. This leads me to believe that the reviews were fabricated, given the fact that a one star rating doesn’t usually come equipped with a great review.
CONTROL PANEL INFORMATION
Information about GreenGeek’s control panel is not plentiful to the general public, however, its features are customizable, secure, and operable with one click. For a beginner, this set up is extremely user-friendly. For someone with a little more experience, the control panel is sufficient, but not necessarily impressive.
GREENGEEKS HOSTING CUSTOMER SUPPORT
Customer support availability is excellent with GreenGeeks. Customers may contact GreenGeeks for help via telephone or through the Live Chat system. Unlike some web hosting sites, GreenGeeks’s Live Chat system is up and running at all hours of the day. Just enter your name, and whether or not your inquiry pertains to sales, billing, or support, and you’ll be linked up with a live agent who can walk you through your question(s).
GREENGEEKS MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
GreenGeeks features a 30-Day Money Back guarantee. If you’re not satisfied with their services, for any reason, you can receive a full refund within the first 30 days of your account activation. However, refunds are never available for domain registrations. Service can be canceled at any time, but the customer is required to pay for the entire month during which he or she cancels.
Overall, GreenGeeks offers a solid service with few lags in uptime and excellent, approachable customer service. Based on pricing, however, there are equally, if not lesser-priced, options that can provide customers with services that are equally as sufficient. The motivating factor for choosing GreenGeeks as your web host would be for environmental reasons. Eco-friendly users will have the peace of mind in knowing they’re reducing their carbon footprint while hosting their website with a company that shares an interest in a cause they believe in.
