Greengeeks VPS Vs Inmotion VPS
Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting is growing in popularity. The benefits to VPS are much like having a dedicated server plan without the high cost. VPS hosting can cost as little as $20 a month, which compares very similarly to shared hosting plans.
Greengeeks formed their brand of hosting with the notion of being “Green” with their energy usage. They buy 300% of their electricity through Renewable Energy Credits (REC’s), and all clients get to announce their environmentally friendliness with a “Green” badge. In addition to shared hosting plans, Greengeeks also offer VPS hosting as well.
