GreenGeeks is a US based web hosting provider which claims to use only green energy therefore minimizing the effect on environment. This company has been in the business since 2006 (only see recognition from 2009) and has evolved from a small company to a leading provider of webhosting. They claim to host more than 100,000 websites and offer great plans at tempting prices. The company website is very simple with an option to buy the plan right on the homepage. One can easily navigate through all their plans and the features they provide. GreenGeeks claims that it follows extremely energy efficient schemes and uses wind power for their data centers.

Although the company’s main agenda is green energy, from a consumer’s point of view, they offer good features in their hosting plan at economical prices. One of the unique features offered is the free domain for life of the account. Other features include unlimited disk space, bandwidth, email addresses and MySQL databases. This is not available in any other hosting packages offered by their competitors in the similar price range. They support web apps like Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Gallery plugins and blogs. All these can be easily installed with a few clicks. The support service is very decent. Many of the issues are normally resolved immediately with in an hour or so after emailing them.

Keep in mind that when you sign up with a free domain for life of account and try to cancel it within 30days, you would incur a domain cost of $24.95. You should be able to transfer the domain to another provider but still you need to pay the fees. If you plan to continue the hosting with the provider and transfer the domain after 30-days then there is no domain fees associated with it, but your hosting account’s 30-day money back guarantee is not valid any more.

Overall, GreenGeeks is a good web hosting provider for people who want hosting for their personal or small to medium business. If you are planning on using the free domain for life account, then you should consider taking their plan with a long-term hosting in mind.
