VERDICT / Overall, GreenGeeks has many unique features to offer its clients and places an emphasis on the environment.
GreenGeeks has been in business since 2008 and provides a variety of web services, including cloud hosting solutions. This company has created its own special mission to provide environmentally friendly cloud hosting. GreenGeeks is a certified EPA Green Power partner and adheres environmental-management policies.
The hosting packages provided by this cloud server are extremely flexible. In our comparison, this service ranked in the top half for plan flexibility. With the basic package, you are provided with 25GB of dedicated disk space. This amount of disk space is one of the lowest allotments provided with a starting package. The bandwidth provided by this service, 1000GB, is also lower than what other cloud servers on the lineup provide. This means that even though you can host an unlimited amount of domains and subdomains, your unlimited allotments will not go as far due to limited disk space.
With this service, you are allowed two IP addresses with your account and four CPU cores. We were happy to see that both of these allotments are higher than the industry average.
Help and support options provided by GreenGeeks include email ticketing and an online knowledgebase. In the knowledgebase, you can find video tutorials that give detailed walkthroughs for beginning to use the control panel. You can create an email ticket for help requests, but other options are limited. GreenGeeks does not offer 24/7 phone support or free priority support. You can reach the support team through live chat as well if you have quick questions.
The control panel is relatively easy to use. You can create an unlimited amount of FTP accounts with this service, and the dashboard is completely compatible for WordPress integrations. You also have the option to create custom 404 error pages. These give your website a personalized feeling.
If secure cloud hosting is an area you are concerned about, GreekGeeks is a good choice for your cloud hosting needs. It provides top features, like site backup and restoration, for no extra fee and includes all of the basic features we were looking for like SpamAssassin.
Overall, GreenGeeks is a top choice in cloud hosting providers. While it does not offer as much disk space or bandwidth as other companies we reviewed, it does place special emphasis on environmental friendliness and has a solid set of security features.
