Its not that bad in my opinion, they are one of the fastest host that i ever try.

There is only one guy, and he is pathetic. Ergo, their sales department is pathetic. And, their customer service is also pathetic. You will wait HOURS for him to begin tackling even the simplest of issues. He will waste your preci...Read More

I've been with GeekStorage for years and have little to no downtime and they always help me fast if I need it, but I haven't had to submit a ticket in for over 2 years.

Customer service is pathetic. You'll wait days for them to begin to trouble shoot the simplest of issues. They'll waste your time by trying to blame it on other factors or the customer doing something wrong. They will fail to unde...Read More

Expert Overview

Excellent hosting with a focus on support

Geekstorage has been providing web hosting services for over 7 years now, and they have really built a strong reputation for quality service and support.  Their main marketing tactic is that their servers are 'powered by geeks' which essentially means that they have high quality technical support.  From everything I can find on the company, this really seems to be true.

In addition, the company is employee owned, which means that when the company does well, the employees profit.  This is obviously a great business model to keep employees motivated and it seems to have helped create a culture where the employees are always willing to help customers with almost any problem.

Regarding the hosting specifically, they offer shared hosting, VPS and dedicated hosting packages, so they can meet the needs of almost any site.  They have a variety of uptime guarantees and money back options to ensure that all their cusotmers are completely happy with the hosting they provide.  They also have four high end data centers to help ensure they are located where their customers want them.

Uptime & Reliability

Excellent uptime and reliability

This company offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee, which is backed with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.  They make it a point to show that they understand that the most importnat thing from a hosting company is fast load speeds and reliability, and they work hard to provide both of these things.

The reliability is improved by the fact that they have four data centers, all of which are high end with great hardware and support.  They have people on site to handle any issues right away, and they also use advanced monitoring to identify things like failing drives before they actually cause any type of outage.

Features

Quality hosting with lots of nice features

GeekStorage offers a wide range of different features.  As you move up with the package level, you'll get improved features so you always have what you need.  They do limit how much disk space you have, but the limits seem very reasonable and most customers won't run into any problems with them.  Unlimited bandwidth is available at all levels, as is free website migration services.

They also perform daily backups, which are stored offsite for added security.  You can get a free SSL certificate with some packages, but you need to sign up for at least a year to qualify.  For other hosting options, or those who pay month to month, this service is available for an added fee.

You can choose from 300+ apps that can be installed with just one click, and they also offer cPanel, and LightSpeed software to make it fast and easy to manage your sites.

Support

Excellent support from highly qualified technicians

This is really where this company tries to set themselves apart from the competition.  They constantly talk about why it is important to have your sites hosted by geeks.  From what I have read on social media and other sites, they do an excellent job meeting the expectations that their customers have.

In addition to being easy to get ahold of and work with, they offer a wide range of self help options that are well written and easy to understand, even for a newer webmaster.

Pricing

Fairly standard pricing options

The pricing with GeekStorage all seems to be about average.  There are a few plans that seem to be lower than normal, and a few that seem to be above average.  The fact is, however, that you won't likely be swayed toward or away from this company based strictly on their pricing.

Summary

Overall great quality hosting

The hosting from this company is really quite good, and most people will be very satisfied with the services they provide.  There have been very few reports of any significant problems from customers (current or former) which is obviously a great sign.

Pros:

  • Employee owned company
  • Four high quality data centers (3 US, one EU)
  • 100% satisfaction guarantee

Cons:

  • Business image may seem somewhat unprofessional (intentional marketing choice)
  • Some features require 12 month agreement
