PHP 7 hosting has been launched for all GreenGeeks customers. How do you do it, what is PHP and how does this all effect you? I hope to tackle all these concerns and more. What is so great about this new PHP version? PHP 7 does bring in a significant performance boost. There are also some new language features too.
GreenGeeks is excited to introduce a feature to our hosting environment that has been months in the making. We recently surveyed our customers and asked them what features they wanted to see added to our service. You asked for it, and now you’ve got it! Drush is now available for use on all of our Shared hosting and Reseller Hosting plans!
Earlier this week we announced that we have upgraded all of our VPS Hosting servers to Intel Xeon E5 Processors. All of our existing VPS customers were automatically upgraded for free.
GreenGeeks VPS Hosting servers now come standard with Intel Xeon E5 Processors, DDR3 Memory, RAID-10 high-performance and highly-redundant storage array’s, multi-gigabit network connection along with enterprise class Linux CentOS and a full cPanel/WHM license. The VPS Hosting Service also comes with 24/7/365 technical support.
“To keep up with technological advancements, we are always improving our web hosting services.” said Trey Gardner, CEO of GreenGeeks. “With more and more customers doing more with their online presence, the upgrades will enable website owners and developers to take advantage of the extra processing power to get more out of their applications.”

Back in May we released a blog post about updates on the versions of PHP we have available on our servers with the introduction of PHP 5.3 to our server fleet. We are happy to announce a new tool in our cPanel which allows you to choose the PHP version of your account as well as the introduction of PHP version 5.4 on our systems.
How can I enable this feature?
Login to cPanel and under Software and Services, click on “Select PHP version”. You can then choose from either the native version of PHP of your server, or version 5.2, 5.3 and 5.4. PHP version 5.5 will be available when it comes out of alpha testing.
We are always looking to improve the technology available on our servers to our customers. If you have a feature that you would like to see on our servers, we would love to hear it in the comment section of this post. As always, if you have any questions about this new feature, our support team is here for you 24×7 to answer any questions you may have.
If you haven’t heard about CloudFlare before, their value proposition is simple: they’ll make any website twice as fast and protect it from a broad range of web threats. CloudFlare makes it easy for any site to be as fast and secure as the Internet giants. That fits perfectly in line with what we’re always striving to deliver to our customers.
GreenGeeks excited to announce our partnership with CloudFlare, a web performance and security company.
Today, hundreds of thousands of websites—ranging from individual blogs to e-commerce sites to the websites of Fortune 500 companies to national governments—use CloudFlare to make their sites faster and more secure. We power more than 65 billion monthly page views—more than Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram combined—and over 25% of the Internet’s population regularly passes through our network.
We’re always looking for ways to make our customers lives easier. We were one of the first hosting companies to offer free site migration for customers who transferred to us from other providers and it was received with much appreciation from our customers. It’s a no hands approach to getting set up with us. For our new customers, we’ve always offered easy to use free website builders to build great websites but is a more hands on approach. So we got to thinking how we could make it easy for our new customers to sign up and get something valuable up and running so they can go back to doing business… Continue reading “Let us Build a Website for you.”
We have been working hard over the past few months to bring our customers new partnerships with software that compliments our hosting well. We only partner with people we strongly believe provide the same level of customer service that we do. One of our latest partners is a service called SiteLock. Security has always been our top priority here at GreenGeeks, and we do everything in our power to provide top server security to our customers. SiteLock adds an additional layer of security to your site that is unparalleled by any other service.
As soon as I heard about this service, I had to try it our for myself. I loaded it on to one of my sites hosted by us. Signup was a breeze and I was all set in under 3 minutes. With my GreenGeeks membership, I received almost an 80% discount on the service, what a great deal! The service will begin in minutes and will do a complete 360 scan of your site. It checks for things like: Continue reading “Protect Your Site with SiteLock”
We’re always looking for ways to improve your hosting experience with us. One request I seem to get quite often is to help a customer to switch their mail servers over to Google Apps. Google has a very robust mail and application service that is used by millions throughout the world. Many of our customers have chosen to direct their mail to Google, and we want to make doing this as simple as possible.
You will notice a new icon in your cPanel called “Google Apps Wizard”. Clicking on this icon will allow you to setup your email for Google Apps by doing all the settings changes for you. Simply select which domain you want to setup, and our tool will do the rest. This eliminates the more complicated process of manually setting up your MX records.
We want to hear about any features you think we should introduce. Feel free to write a comment on this post, or contact support with any suggestions you may have.
