GreenGeeks: Eco-Friendly Hosting Review


“Green” hosting is becoming more and more popular every year. Companies around the world have started to realize the importance of preserving the environment, and found out that switching to environment-friendly hosting is the least they can do.

Today, we want to take a look at the “world’s #1 green web hosting” provider – GreenGeeks … or are they?


The servers at GreenGeeks are wind-powered, and the control panel for managing your hosting account is cPanel.

GreenGeeks lets you in on the full set of cPanel’s features, including: domain and sub-domain management, email accounts management, web stats, FTP access, backups, various security features, and much more.

Email Features

GreenGeeks offers their customers a wide range of email features and possibilities. First of all, you can create an unlimited number of email addresses.

Also: unlimited POP3/POP3 secure emails, unlimited IMAP/secure IMAP emails, unlimited forwarding email accounts, unlimited email autoresponders, and webmail access.

Programming and Database Features

Even the cheapest plans at GreenGeeks let you create unlimited MySQL databases, and provide high performance MySQL backend running on optimized database servers.

The programming platform allows you to take advantage of technologies such as: PHP 5, Perl 5, Python, Javascript, phpBB, WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, poll and survey software, Moodle, SSL secure server. Plus, a number of e-commerce technologies: OS Commerce, Agora, and Zencart.

Plans and Price

There are three main types of plans GreenGeeks has to offer: shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting.

The shared plan is only $4.95 per month, and for that price you get:

  • free website builders,

  • auto installers for more than 150 scripts (including WordPress),

  • unlimited domains hosting,

  • one free domain name,

  • unlimited disk space,

  • unlimited bandwidth,

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee,

  • 24/7/365 support (North America),

  • 30-day money-back guarantee.

Reseller plans come in a couple of versions, ranging from $19.95 (first month for $0.01) to $99.95 per month.

They all offer unlimited disk space and bandwidth, but they put different limits on the number of resold accounts. The basic plan allows you to resell 10 accounts, all the way up to 250 for the top plan.

VPS hosting ranges from $39.95 to $99.95 per month. Each plan puts different limits on disk space (25-125GB), bandwidth (500-1,500GB), and RAM memory (512-2,048MB).

Available In

As always, you can sign up regardless of your location. However, the company provides its 24/7/365 support in the US and Canada only (via phone, ticket system, and live chat), which gives us a better idea on their target customer group.

The Good

The things that work great for GreenGeeks is their affordable price for shared hosting and a wide range of plans available above the basic one.

The Bad

If you’re an international affiliate, you can find it hard to communicate with the support team effectively.

The Bottom Line

In the end, GreenGeeks provides great hosting plans for US-based affiliates. Their basic plan is only $4.95 per month, which gives you a great opportunity to join a new affiliate niche with a freshly created website at low cost.
