Founded in 2006, this company devotes itself to offering quality VPS hosting for more than 10 years.

To be honest, the price is absolutely affordable as compared with many other VPS hosting packages. You can purchase the basic package at the price of $39.95 each month.

This host offers multiple packages coming with a different allocation of memory, RAID-10 storage, and monthly data transfer, so customers can choose the most suited one depending on the resources needed.

GreenGeeks claims to guarantee at least 99.9% uptime on the official site, and have fully kept this promise in the real world. This is because all the web servers utilized by them are DELL branded, coming with the best specifications like Intel Xeon processors, minimum 24 GB DDR3 ECC-registered memory, 100Mpbs connection for the switches, and BGP4 gigabit connectivity.

Besides, to make sure that these servers can work unceasingly with the best efficiency, this company locates them at a cutting-edge data center that is SAS 70 Type 1 certified, coming with dual-city grid power feeds, redundant power supply, FM 200 server-safe fire suppression system, automatic climate control system, and 24/7 facility monitoring.


With robust web servers and a world-class data center, GreenGeeks is undoubtedly able to guarantee a fast hosting speed. Therefore, customers no longer need to worry about their websites consuming a long time for webpage loading, thus upsetting their visitors.

About 6 months ago, we have set up a new website with a lot of high-resolution images and plugins, and have hosted this site with GreenGeeks VPS hosting. After monitoring its server response with Pingdom at a 5-minute interval, we have found that it only consumes an average of 375ms, which is much faster than sites hosted with many other companies on the web.

Technical Support

Instead of outsourcing this part, GreenGeeks has set up a support team that is North American based. All the support staffs are English speakers, knowledgeable, and professional, being able to assist customers with the best resolutions. The service is available at any time of the day, which means even customers encounter problems during Christmas Eve, they can find somebody to help them.

Besides, to guarantee the best convenience, this host offers multiple support channels that include a hotline, e-mail, live chat, and FAQs section.


According to this in-depth review, GreenGeeks is absolutely a good VPS hosting provider, for it offers cost-effective packages, guarantees excellent hosting performance, and provides responsive support service. In addition, with its dedication to green hosting, customers don’t need to worry about any environmental issues caused by VPS hosting.
