This is a company that cares about its customers and when something is not right they will do whatever it takes to make it right. It’s easy to have integrity when there are no problems. What really shows your integrity is how you handle it when things go sideways. Green Geeks you’ve got it!!!” – Tom Kuettner

  1. Apart from Nexcess and HostGator, there are is Cloudways that is worth a try for hosting Magento store. A good thing about this platform is that it eliminates the need for manually setting up the server and installing the packages. It automates the hosting process.
