    Not worth it

    I had previously owned and maintained a domain through Yahoo! Small Business, but after an unforeseen event forced me to shut down my site, I decided to try out a new host for my next domain. After comparing several options, I chose Green Geeks.

    Their service is fairly average. I never noticed any downtime, at least, and their live chat operators are available 24/7 for help. And help you will need. Their site is somewhat difficult to navigate, and their pricing options misleading. I had owned my previous site for 10 years and paid month to month. If that option is available on Green Geeks, I could not find it and was only given the option of paying for one, two, or three years up front. While I hated doing it that way, I opted for the three year plan, as they did offer discounts for purchasing multiple years at once.

    After the first year, I decided to cancel my service. I didn't care much for their web based file manager, and simply ended up not having time to maintain the site. However, I could not find any information on cancelling service and had to rely on a live chat operator to send me a direct link. I asked if I could expect a refund for the two years of service they would not be providing and was told they do not offer refunds. I feel it's sort of cheating the customer at that point. Why should I pay for a service I was not satisfied with?

    In the end, their prices are really no better than other hosts, and those other hosts offer more flexible payment options. I would not return to Green Geeks for my next domain.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
