Reliability - Hosting site review

Reliability

GreenGeeks offers an industry standard uptime of over 99% using high performing servers that provide their subscribers’ websites with short loading times and as little downtime as possible. They also have a 24/7 server monitoring policy that enables them to pro-actively prevent any security issues. Moreover, your website will benefit from daily back-ups so that you can rest assured your content is safely guarded.

Control panel - Hosting site review

Control Panel

A great advantage you get when using GreenGeeks as your hosting provider is the use of cPanel, which is the most popular and easy to use control panel around. Opening and managing email accounts, editing databases and making various settings at domain level is a lot easier when dealing with a user friendly interface.

Most subscribers have started using their services because of the company’s eco-friendly attitude. GreenGeeks not only ensure their servers and their offices use exclusively wind energy, but also are highly active with charitable donations and reducing carbon footprint policies.

    Cancellation Policy

    After 1 day of trying to build a drag and drop site, I determined that GreenGeeks was not the provider for me. I cancelled the very next day, and although they have a satisfaction guarantee return policy. Read it carefully, because they kept almost half the fee of the yearly subscription, which I found to be unconscionable, and morally corrupt.
