Let us Build a Website for you.

We’re always looking for ways to make our customers lives easier. We were one of the first hosting companies to offer free site migration for customers who transferred to us from other providers and it was received with much appreciation from our customers. It’s a no hands approach to getting set up with us. For our new customers, we’ve always offered easy to use free website builders to build great websites but is a more hands on approach. So we got to thinking how we could make it easy for our new customers to sign up and get something valuable up and running so they can go back to doing business…

Introducing the Starter Site feature.

Here’s what we’ll do for customers when they opt to use the Starter Site feature:

  • We’ll build a 1-page website that includes basic information such as their logo, hours of operation, contact information, map and description of their services.
  • We’ll manually create up to 5 e-mail addresses for them and provide assistance to setup their favorite e-mail clients.
  • We’ll register a free domain name for them
  • We’ll manually submit their website to Google, Yahoo and Bing.

Protect Your Site with SiteLock

We have been working hard over the past few months to bring our customers new partnerships with software that compliments our hosting well. We only partner with people we strongly believe provide the same level of customer service that we do. One of our latest partners is a service called SiteLock. Security has always been our top priority here at GreenGeeks, and we do everything in our power to provide top server security to our customers. SiteLock adds an additional layer of security to your site that is unparalleled by any other service.

As soon as I heard about this service, I had to try it our for myself. I loaded it on to one of my sites hosted by us. Signup was a breeze and I was all set in under 3 minutes. With my GreenGeeks membership, I received almost an 80% discount on the service, what a great deal! The service will begin in minutes and will do a complete 360 scan of your site. It checks for things like: Continue reading

Introducing One Click Google Apps

Hello Everyone,

We’re always looking for ways to improve your hosting experience with us. One request I seem to get quite often is to help a customer to switch their mail servers over to Google Apps. Google has a very robust mail and application service that is used by millions throughout the world. Many of our customers have chosen to direct their mail to Google, and we want to make doing this as simple as possible.

You will notice a new icon in your cPanel called “Google Apps Wizard”. Clicking on this icon will allow you to setup your email for Google Apps by doing all the settings changes for you. Simply select which domain you want to setup, and our tool will do the rest. This eliminates the more complicated process of manually setting up your MX records.

We want to hear about any features you think we should introduce. Feel free to write a comment on this post, or contact support with any suggestions you may have.

Have a great week!
