Greece.com.gr is one of the oldest web hosting companies that is still operating today. It began as Media Power in 1985 to provide software development services, and then in 1990, it started providing marketing, advertising, and sales promotion services. It has provided web hosting services since 1997.
Greece.com.gr’s servers sit in the United States, and its website is in Greek.
Features and Ease of Use
Greece.com.gr offers web hosting, WordPress hosting, Virtual Private Servers, reseller hosting, and dedicated servers. Its three web hosting plans provide you with:
- 99.9% uptime
- Automatic backups
- Free SSL certificate
- Up to unlimited websites
- Unlimited storage and traffic
One thing that really stands out for me is this host’s provision of beginner-friendly features. Firstly, the cPanel control panel includes a one-click installer for many popular programs such as WordPress and Magento. Secondly, the RVSiteBuilder website builder lets you build a professional web presence via a simple drag-and-drop interface; no programming required.
Besides being beginner-friendly, Greece.com.gr is also security conscious. As well as physical security at server locations, security software helps protect you against infiltration, viruses, and other malware. You get firewall protection, brute force protection, email filtering, and denial-of-service protection.
Data is backed up daily, with daily, weekly, and monthly backups being retained. And the best bit is that backups will be restored for free.
If shared hosting isn’t sufficient for your needs, you could consider a VPS or dedicated server instead.
Pricing and Support
Greece.com.gr’s hosting plans aren’t expensive at all. But, while you can pay for virtual and dedicated servers monthly, shared hosting requires a three-month minimum commitment.
As confirmed by customer services, there is no 30-day money-back guarantee despite one being advertised on the website. But you can get a pro-rata refund of your remaining hosting at any time, and there is three months’ free hosting when you register or transfer a domain. The final freebie is some free Google Ads credit.
Customer support can be accessed via live chat, email, fax, and phone. I was pleased with the pre-sales support I received via the live chat channel:
