Why is it Better?
Data center location can make a huge difference in website speed, so it’s great that GreenGeeks now allows you to choose where your website is located. But that’s just the start. With GreenGeeks’ enhanced web and database servers, along with their in-house Powercache technology, your websites run even faster. When you add in the solid state drives, Cloudflare content delivery network, and PHP 7, your total site performance is amazing.
We’re happy to hear about the new hosting account isolation features from GreenGeeks. Some people may be concerned that with a shared hosting plan you could be affected by others on the same server. And while these days most web hosts do a good job of insulating customers on a shared server, GreenGeeks’ container based provisioning further prevents users from impacting each other.
Besides hosting account isolation, GreenGeeks also includes Linux Secure Systems, Proactive Server Monitoring, and Real Time Scanning to prevent malware and malicious attacks on your website.
With GreenGeeks, you now don’t have to worry about upgrading to an expensive VPS hosting plan should your website become extremely popular and require more resources. Their scalable hosting platform will allow you upgrade your resources to handle more traffic without a change to VPS.
And for the environmentally conscious, you’ll be pleased to know that with the revamped hosting platform, GreenGeeks still provides you with industry leading green web hosting. You’ll still enjoy an energy efficient, carbon reducing website at GreenGeeks.
