Best cheap web hosting companies for 2017 - reviews.com
At first blush, GreenGeeks’ environmentally friendly pitch sounds like a gimmick, and it sort of is. According to GreenGeeks, hosting companies are responsible for up to 1,390 pounds of CO2 every year, just for consuming the power they need to run their servers. GreenGeeks counters this by buying three times as much green energy as it uses and pumping that clean, wind-farm energy back into the local electrical grid. For this, it gets to claim that it’s a 300 percent green company.
GreenGeeks doesn’t let its planet-friendly slant get in the way of its services. The host ticks every box in our evaluation checklist. In addition to boasting an independently verified 99.98 percent server uptime, GreenGeeks sites are hosted on high-speed solid-state drives, have access to multiple one-click install interfaces via the standard cPanel backend, boast unlimited webspace and bandwidth, and enjoy free nightly backups.
Like Bluehost, it’s not the “cheapest” host you can buy, but with a focus on quality, we think it stands out as one of the best for its price range. Plus, it’s doing a little something nice for the planet. How many web hosts can say that?
