GreenGeeks Vs 1&1
In the earliest days of internet and subsequently web hosting, the three primary aspects to look into while choosing a company was the storage space it offered, the ability to book a domain and if they can keep the website hosted round the clock. Steadily factors like how many updates can one make over a year, if there are any site migration features or website templates and search engine optimization aspects came to the fore. Over the decade, a lot has changed in the world of web hosting. Hosting prices have come down, companies offer a horde of different features and today there are hundreds of web hosts as well.
Here, we shall look at GreenGeeks Vs 1&1, two companies that have been among the popular choices as web host. Like the old days, one cannot look at only three features or attributes of web hosts but all that is in the offing can be categorized into three aspects.
GreenGeeks Vs 1&1 – Price
Web hosts today have various plans and it is difficult to tally each plan vis-à-vis one of the other company. Looking at the basic starting plans from both the web hosts, GreenGeeks has a slight pricing advantage. While 1&1 plans start at $4.99 per month, GreenGeeks start with $4.95. While both offer unlimited domains, there is a difference in the operating system of the servers they use. GreenGeeks only uses Linux servers whereas 1&1 uses Windows as well. If you are aware of servers and the operating system that most companies rely on then Linux would b what you would opt for any given day. From the perspective of price and the operating system of the servers, GreenGeeks appear to be a tad more favorable.
GreenGeeks Vs 1&1 – Features
Both the web hosts offer unlimited Disk Space, Bandwidth, Hosted Domains, FTP Accounts, Addon Domains, Parked Domains, Sub Domains and POP3 Accounts. GreenGeeks also offers unlimited E-mail Alias, Auto Responders and MySQL Databases which 1&1 doesn’t. Both offer free site builder, free domain and free instant setup but GreenGeeks offers free website templates and free website migration which 1&1 doesn’t. Given the fact that you would pick a web host to have a website, the website templates and website migration facilities of GreenGeeks bear significance.
GreenGeeks Vs 1&1 – Experience
Both the web hosts offer telephone support, round the clock server monitoring, ticket system, FAQ and user guide. GreenGeeks offers video tutorials and 24/7/365 live chat in addition to all of the above which makes it easier for anyone to correspond with them.
