The process of signing up at GreenGeeks is very simple and easy. Here below are the steps you need to go through to sign up with GreenGeeks.

Step 1. Go to


Go to their website and find their web hosting plans page (you won’t be able to miss it).

Step 2. Choose your GreenGeeks hosting plan

GreenGeeks has three shared hosting pricing plans you can sign up for; Lite, Pro, and Premium. (I recommend the Lite plan if you are a beginner.)

Shared hosting plansGreenGeeks offers three shared web hosting plans: Lite ($2.95/month), Pro ($5.95/month), and Premium ($10.95/month). 

Both the Pro and the Premium plans come with unlimited storage space and unlimited websites, a very reasonable price for these features.

WordPress hosting plansGreenGeeks’ hosting specially designed for WordPress comes at three prices:

The prices are identical to the shared web hosting plans). Lite ($2.95/month), Pro ($5.95/month), and Premium ($10.95/month).

All of GreenGeeks’ plans come with 1 tree planted, as well as their wind energy offset promise and a free domain name, and with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Step 3. Choose Domain Name

Next, you need to choose a domain name.

You choose to create a new domain (included for free) or sign up using an existing domain you already own.

Step 4. Review & Complete Your Order

Next is the final step, where you create your account, fill out your personal details, your payment information, and the add-on hosting options you want.

Next, you are asked to choose your hosting package, and the add-ons and pay for your hosting account. There are two things to factor in here.

First thing is to choose the location of your preferred server location.

You are given the option of the United States, Canada, or Europe. Choose the location based on where you are and where your customer/audience is geographically located.

Second thing is to decide if you need the ID Protect – Whois Privacy addon. This only applies if you chose to register your, free, domain name with GreenGeeks.

For an extra $9.95 per year, Whois Privacy hides your public data for your domain’s whois information. It’s entirely up to you but I would not pay for this extra.

Step 5. And You Are Done
