Blue Geek Hosting’s servers are located in New York City (U.S.A.), and its website is in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Blue Geek Hosting offers eight shared Linux hosting plans and five cloud-VPS plans. The three “Standard” shared hosting plans provide you with:
- 99.9% uptime
- cPanel control panel
- One hosted domain
- 1 GB to 3 GB SSD storage
- Unlimited bandwidth
- 1 to 10 FTP accounts
- 5 to 25 email addresses
- 2 to 10 MySQL databases
- 5 to 25 subdomains
- Free Let’s Encrypt SSL
- Custom php.ini
The one-click script installer makes it easy for you to install popular CMS systems such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. Once your website is up-and-running, this host provides weekly backups to safeguard your data.
Underpinning your hosting is SSD storage that is far faster and more reliable than traditional HDD storage. You can upgrade or downgrade with one click, and simply pay the tariff difference for your new plan.
Ultimately, you could upgrade to the ultimate plan that the company claims to be the industry’s fastest shared hosting. This plan could be ideal for e-commerce websites, and it comes with unlimited domains, subdomains, bandwidth, email addresses, FTP accounts, and MYSQL databases.
Pricing and Support
Blue Geek Hosting’s shared hosting plans are dirt-cheap. You can pay for them in U.S. dollars or Indian rupees via PayPal (hence credit/debit cards), CCAvenue, or Instamojo on monthly to biennial billing cycles (depending on the plan). The 30-day money-back guarantee gives you a month to change your mind and receive a refund.
Contact this company’s customer support team via live chat, email, tickets, or online contact form. I received rapid responses to my pre-sales support questions via the live chat channel:
It’s a good thing that one-to-one support is so good because the self-support resources are disappointing. The knowledgebase contains only one entry, and the blog link leads to a “404 (not found)” error.
How much does Blue Geek Hosting cost?Blue Geek Hosting offers plans from $0 to $7. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which Blue Geek Hosting plan should I get?My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. Blue Geek Hosting can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. The increase in visitors many times takes longer than expected and you shouldn’t pay a lot of money until the need arises. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from Blue Geek Hosting here.
How good is Blue Geek Hosting’s customer support?Blue Geek Hosting is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of Blue Geek Hosting being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them.
