GreenGeeks Performance Review
Server Response Time
The GreenGeeks site recorded an uptime of 99.96%. It's well within their uptime guarantee of 99.9%.
The GreenGeeks site recorded an average response time of 77ms for handling 500 simultaneous visitors.
The GreenGeeks Global TTFB is 530ms. I tested the GreenGeeks site from 35 global locations.
Core Web Vitals
The GreenGeeks recorded a ‘Largest Contentful Paint' of 406ms, a ‘Total Blocking Time' of 0ms, and a ‘Cumulative Layout Shift' of 0. GreenGeeks can help sites to a large extent in delivering a great user experience.
1. Powerful Tech stacks
GreenGeeks utilizes the latest and innovative technologies like the ultra-fast LiteSpeed Web Server, LSCache, and MariaDB to fuel your site performance.
First, of its kind, GreenGeeks introduced “Scalable Computing Resources” to shared hosting. You can easily add RAM or CPU cores through this feature when there is a need for it.
I found this feature impressive, where I haven’t heard scaling resources on shared hosting is possible.
2. 100% US-based 24×7 support
We found GreenGeeks 24/7 US-based customer support to be good at solving issues. There are three ways to reach them either via chat, call, or email.
3. Unlimited web space, websites, Bandwidth
GreenGeeks runs its own data centers, thus it makes them offer high resources. The company offers unlimited SSD space, websites, and bandwidth on the Pro and Premium plan. The Lite starter plan also comes with an enormous 50GB space.
4. Free Website Migration
There are multiple hosting providers who stopped offering free migrations and charged hefty paid migrations. GreenGeeks, on the other hand, doesn’t charge a single penny for site migration.
5. In-house developed security
GreenGeeks is endowed with in-house developed security features to provide superior protection to your website. It uses container-based technology for the scalability and security of hosting accounts.
GreenGeeks ensures maximum uptime with redundant hardware along with continuous server monitoring. To safeguard your website from online threats, it offers real-time security scanning. GreenGeeks automatically updates your applications like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.
With in-built spam protection, GreenGeeks helps reduce the amount of received spam. It offers nightly data backup to ensure your website data is safe from accidental erasure or hardware failure.
Conclusion: Do I recommend GreenGeeks?
GreenGeeks managed to satisfy me in all departments. They’ve got a great control panel, impressive performance and uptime, and 24/7 customer support that cares. On top of that, the pricing is so cheaper than their competitors.
