Greek Hosting is fine, but fine is not good enough. While Greek Hosting is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.
Greek Hosting’s greek-hosting.gr website doesn’t give away any information about when it was established, but we can safely assume that it’s Greek. The main website is in Greek, but the client area can be viewed in 26 additional languages.
Features and Ease of Use
Greek Hosting offers six cPanel shared hosting plans — Basic 500 Mb, Basic 1 Gb, Basic 2 Gb, Pro, Enterprise, and Joomla Hosting — although the last plan is listed separately on a different web page. With the shared hosting plans, you get:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- 500 MB to 10 GB storage
- 10 GB to 100 GB traffic
- cPanel control panel
- One-page to eight-page hosting
- Seven days worth of backups
The included Softaculous one-click installer means you can run several popular installation scripts without needing any technical knowledge. And the R1Soft Server Backup Manager provides a cost-effective solution for continuous data protection that shouldn’t affect server performance.
Since this provider uses SSD storage for its Cloud VPS, performance and reliability will be much improved compared with traditional HDD storage. Furthermore, RAID 1 redundancy means that your data is mirrored across multiple drives so that your website won’t go down if one drive fails.
Besides share hosting, Greek Hosting also offers nine VPS plans and four dedicated servers, plus streaming solutions for radio stations.
Pricing and Support
Greek Hosting’s shared hosting plans are competitively priced, but nudging into the upper range. You can pay in euros, annually or biennially, by bank transfer, PayPal, or credit card. There is a 30-day refund policy (with no fixed costs refunded), and you can also request a refund of one day per hour of downtime if uptime falls below 99.9% in any year. A somewhat strange sign-up incentive is a free website if you have already hosted a website on a similar plan with this host for at least two years.
Contact this company’s 24/7 technical support via email, support ticket, live chat, or telephone (during office hours only). Unfortunately, live chat wasn’t available when I wanted to try it, and my exploratory email elicited no response.
Remote Hands G-Care service is available for dedicated servers and unmanaged VPS, and for self-support, limited resources are available in the form of a blog and an FAQ page:
