IX Web Hosting VS GreenGeeks

IX Web Hosting VS GreenGeeks

With so many web hosting companies to choose from, a few things to keep in mind to help narrow down the choices are economical pricing and ecologically friendly services. IX Web Hosting offers the former while GreenGeeks offers both the former and the later.

Pricing

GreenGeeks offers one basic web hosting plan at just $6.95 a month. For this low monthly cost, web hosting clients receive a fantastic web hosting account full of the latest and most standard features, nightly back-ups of all data, and the peace of mind that GreenGeeks offsets its carbon footprint by paying three times the amount of energy they consume in wind energy carbon credits.

Ranging from $3.95 a month to $7.95 a month (limited time promotion), IX Web Hosting offers great hosting deals for the money. All accounts come with the standards when it comes to features and all new accounts receive a minimum of $100 in credits for use in advertising with the major search engine companies.

Products and Services

In addition to its standard web hosting plans, IX Web Hosting also has virtual private servers available for prospective web hosting clients. Starting at $29.95 a month and progressing to $89.95 a month, each VPS account runs on Intel Xeon E5400 Series CPUs and offer cPanel or Plesk as preferred control panels (control panel option not available for lowest priced VPS account). IX Web Hosting also offers a merchant account option preset with credit card processing and a payment gateway service.

GreenGeeks has made reseller hosting and an affiliate program available to its hosting clients. Reseller accounts range from $19.95 a month to $99.95 a month depending upon the number of domains being hosted. Affiliates are paid $100 per referred account and have access to a control center that allows them to track their commissions and click-through ratings.

Web Hosting Features

Each GreenGeeks web hosting account comes with unlimited disk space, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited hosted domains and unlimited e-mail accounts. All data is backed up each night and new clients can take advantage of a free web site migration offer. GreenGeeks will move all site files, databases and e-mails to the newly setup hosting account and continuously communicates with the hosting client during the entire process.

IX Web Hosting customers can expect unlimited amounts of disk space, hosted domains, bandwidth and sub-domains. All web hosting accounts with this company are e-commerce enabled, preset with web site analytical tools and access to IX Web Hosting’s exclusive control panel allowing customers to manage their accounts.

Customer Service

While both IX Web Hosting and GreenGeeks have extensive support centers with the standard FAQs, knowledge base and tutorials, IX Web Hosting comes out a bit ahead in this area with toll-free phone support available 24×7. Both hosting companies offer live chat options and have easy to use help centers.

Recommendations

Both GreenGeeks and IX Web Hosting offer great hosting deals for super low prices. GreenGeeks is the slight winner in this comparison as the company is making a concerted effort to minimize its impact on the environment.
