      These guys seem to do an adequate job their product. The price isn’t too bad and they seem to try hard from a customer service point of view. Doesn’t appear that a lot people have given them a shot, but they probably should.

      This is an okay web hosting service. Nothing really stand out to me as being top of the line in terms of technology. Price is about what I would expect. Overall It’s a pretty good service that they provide I my opinion.

      It’s nice to see an environmentally conscious web hosting service out there. They do a great job with reliability and downtime. I don’t really know anyone who’s had any significant downtime do to GreenGeeks. Their pricing is fair as well as their customer support, although I’ve never really had to use it. I’d give them two green thumbs up!

    8. Josey Hosey DesignGeeks says:

      As a web design company owner I have to deal with many different hosting companies. There are many personal choices but when it comes green hosting I always recommend Greengeeks to my clients when they asks. They are real green. (not pretending to be green like some company) Technical support is superb with fast and knowledge. Only bad thing about them is the price. They just reduced from $6.95 to $4.95 so anyone who apply later are lucky but not me that registered since they were $6.95 per month.

      I have used many hosting companies in the past and I am happy to suggest that GreenGeeks is definitely one of the best around. I am with them for more than 2 years now and I think they are one of the best in the business. My experience with their customer service is excellent and they have maintained the high level of their support throughout. I was able to shift the control of my websites from the developer to myself easily and this was mainly due to the ease in which everything can be done. Their environmental commitments are great and more the reason to go for their services.

      I don’t know they are really green but I am sure that they are perfect in making smile on your face. Friends, I am using the services from the last 3 years and every time when I asked a help from the support, they provide me something extra. They are the best buddies in the internet world.
      They tech support is excellent. I always got a productive response from the chat support. The cpanel of the hosting is very good. You can easily manage your website with the cpanel.
      I am not a businessman. I am a student and used the hosting for my college projects. I also have a personal image website where I published images captured by me. I never faced any problem with my websites and they all are working fine for 24 hours.
      I am really thankful to the sales team for the competitive prices. Thank you very much.

      I am using GreenGeeks for more than a year now and I have to admit that they are one of the best available web hosting providers on internet. I have used many and found most of them to be either incompetent or crooks. The only problem I have with their services is that they have removed the backup software out of the cPanel software. As I have to perform my own backup now it is a little irritating but nothing I cannot live without. They also provide excellent support which was critical to me. As I am a single person operating a business, good support is essential for me.
