The pricing policy is quite fair: you get a free domain without high prolongation fees, nothing is pre-ticked for you during the sign-up process, and you have the 30-day money back guarantee. Discounts are available for 2-year and 3-year purchases. Ordering GreenGeeks web hosting service for three years will give you a rebate of almost 50%.
