Late last year we announced a partnership with CloudFlare, where we make it easy for you to enable CloudFlare on your account to take advantage of the benefits that CloudFlare offers. If you aren’t using CloudFlare on your hosting account, here’s 4 reasons why you should:
1. Increase in Site Performance
We’re now offering an added incentive to our VPS hosting service plans… new customers will pay only 50% for the first 2 months. GreenGeeks offers VPS hosting solution for enterprise and cloud hosting solutions ranging from storage of 25GB up to 125 GB and bandwidth from 500 GB to 1500 GB.
“Our VPS customers are very happy with the service and performance levels here at GreenGeeks” says GreenGeeks CEO Trey Gardner. “So we thought we’d offer a sweeter deal than anyone else out there and we’d let our new customers test us out at a far lower cost of entry. Our VPS services are billed monthly so with the additional 50% off there is very little to risk to try us out and I am confident we’ll impress most if not all of our new customers. ”
GreenGeeks VPS hosting solutions utilize the latest server grade Intel processors, Memory and RAID-10 storage arrays for excellent performance and reliability. Customers will also get access to 24/7 technical support to create the complete solution along with the abundance of features that we already offer.
We’ve been offering VPS Hosting for quite some time now. We like to give our customers options for when it comes to hosting and that’s why we offer a wide array of hosting solutions, virtual private servers being one of them.

So what exactly is VPS Hosting?
VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and is essentially a server within a larger host server, often called a hardware node. What we’re able to do is take a server with lots of resources (CPU, Memory, Disk Space, etc) and slice it down to smaller servers through virtualization technology. The smaller servers or VPS’ look and feel the same as a dedicated server except that they are residing on hardware that is shared with other VPS’.

About a month ago we announced an GreenGeeks Video Review contest where we were giving away 3 iPad’s.

The cover features an environmentally friendly design with a lightweight, flexible and high-grade solar panel built right into the cover. Now you can keep your kindle charged up without having to plug it in! It also has a built-in LED lamp to make night time reading a breeze.

One of the unique things about GreenGeeks web hosting is that we’re always looking for ways to provide our customers with the best possible hosting experience. This is what sets us apart from the competition. I’ve worked at other hosting providers where there were no advancements. It was boring and it really affected the customers’ chance of succeeding online. Not at GreenGeeks though, we’re always hungry for more. We’re always testing new hardware, new software, new security tools, etc. Anything that would benefit our customers. Continue reading “Increased Performance & Reliability”
Our Ecosite package is pretty amazing because it gives you so many great features like unlimited disk space, bandwidth, and email addresses. But what about our customers who are running more robust systems that need greater RAM, CPU, and process resources? In the past, we have moved these customers up to our VPS hosting packages, which have served them well. But some customers need more resources, but aren’t quite ready to move up to a VPS plan. We decided to launch our Ecosite Premium hosting package for those customers who need greater resources, without any change in the way they manage their site. Ecosite Premium features:
Double the RAM, CPU, and Processes of our Ecosite packages
Fewer customers per server for even greater site performance
Direct access to our nightly backup servers to restore files at any time
