Emerging from Italy, Greenora Hosting is a new entrant to the web hosting market. It sells shared and reseller hosting (Multisite) for small websites and startups. Greenora Hosting is on the Amazon AWS network, known for its global infrastructure (servers in 190 countries) and fast speeds. But Greenora only has servers in Europe and India (for Indian customers). Its polished website is available in Italian and English.
Features and Ease of Use
Greenora offers three shared hosting plans – Personal, Startup, and Enterprise. The Personal plan targets bloggers and small website owners, the Startup plan is suitable for SMBs, whereas the Enterprise plan is for e-commerce users.
Some key shared hosting features include:
- SSD storage
- 99.99% network uptime
- One-click WordPress installation
- Free SSL certificate
- Firewall, anti-spam, and anti-malware
- Automatic backups
If you look at this top web hosting comparison, you’ll find that Greenora’s features are pretty standard. With Greenora Hosting, you get 15 GB to unlimited SSD storage, which is ok for light and medium-trafficked websites. However, most hosts have already adopted SSD storage since it helps boost your website’s overall performance. It’s no longer exclusive to premium web hosting services.
Greenora Hosting labels its shared hosting plans as “WordPress hosting.” In reality, it provides a single-click installer for WordPress that allows you to manage your website (themes, plugins, and databases) through cPanel without going into the WordPress admin area. The plans themselves aren’t optimized for WordPress, unlike WordPress hosting-oriented providers like A2 Hosting, SiteGround, or Kinsta.
It’s good to see cPanel provided as it’s easy to use for managing multiple tasks. Security features like a firewall, anti-spam, free SSL, and anti-malware are another good point to secure your website and data against cyber threats. Greenora Hosting also provides automatic backups four times a week.
Pricing and Support
Greenora Hosting has cheap shared hosting prices in comparison with other hosting services in its tier. It also offers a free shared hosting plan that includes 1 GB of SSD storage, 1 GB of bandwidth, cPanel, WordPress installer, and a free SSL certificate.
You also get a 30-day money-back guarantee and a free domain name .it, .com, and .app, depending on your plan.
On the downside, Greenora Hosting needs to improve its support. For starters, the knowledgebase section is empty, maybe because it’s a new website. I certainly hope they add guides and tutorials. Nevertheless, there’s a small FAQ section on the website.
I tried contacting customer support using the live chat option. Unfortunately, I didn’t get an answer despite Greenora promising its support team’s “turbo support” is available 24/7. Therefore, I sent several generic questions via email and received a detailed response within a couple of hours.
