SiteCloud VS GreenvilleHost

SiteCloud VS GreenvilleHost

Is cloud hosting the wave of the web hosting industry? Or is “green” hosting the wave most in demand? GreenvilleHost isn’t just a clever name. Their focus is bringing affordable shared hosting to their clients with a brand that is 200% powered by wind energy. That means they invest more than they use in alternative energy exploration.

SiteCloud also brings a brand of green web hosting that is 100% carbon neutral through the purchase of wind energy credits and eco-friendly and efficient server configurations. Plus, SiteCloud also brings the in-demand cloud server technology to their clients at an affordable price.

But which one is right for you? Is cloud hosting really more reliable than shared hosting? Let’s take a closer look at these web hosts below, and check out our recommendation.

Pricing

Both web hosts offer a single hosting plan. The SiteCloud plan is just $4.95 per month for cloud server technology. GreenvilleHost brings their plan for just $2.95 per month for 2-years prepaid, or $3.95 for a 1-year plan.

Products and Services

GreenvilleHost offers free marketing credits valued at $125, plus they provide a free website builder and a choice of free eCommerce shopping carts for clients. GreenvilleHost provides cPanel control panel for account management, which is the best control panel software on the market. They offer a 30 day money back guarantee and a 99.9% uptime guarantee as well.

SiteCloud offers the same guarantees on its hosting plan, as well as a free site builder and free marketing credits. SiteCloud also offers cPanel. As well, they offer to pay for their client’s domain registration for as long as they remain a client.

Web Hosting Features

Both plans are similar in basic features and include unlimited bandwidth, disk storage space, hosted domains, email accounts, and MySQL databases. Both hosts offer support for popular scripting and programming languages like PHP 5, Perl, and Python, plus they support popular third party script plugins.

The GreenvilleHost plan also supports multi media for Flash, Shockwave, and Streaming audio/video. As mentioned, their plan also comes with eCommerce solutions ready to go.

Customer Service

Both SiteCloud and GreenvilleHost want to support their clients as best they can. SiteCloud offers 24 hour live support via online chat only. They do offer telephone support, but only during business hours. GreenvilleHost offers true 24 hour live support via telephone, chat, and email.

Both provide an online help center, but the SiteCloud knowledgebase contains a limited number of articles. The GreenvilleHost online support center contains a much more extensive article list in more categories, plus they provide a library of guide downloads and a troubleshooter wizard tool.

Recommendations

Both of these web hosts offer a very similar hosting product at almost identical prices. While the SiteCloud brand does bring cloud server technology to its clients, the GreenvilleHost plan is just as reliable and backed by a near 100% uptime guarantee. Plus their customer support is much more extensive. Our recommendation goes to GreenvilleHost for providing quality shared-server hosting.
