Earth Girl Hosting Introduction

Earth Girl Hosting is a US web host that takes a rather unique approach to shared hosting. They use a flexible pricing model, in which you pay for a set level of storage and bandwidth, but if you exceed those amounts you’re charged a very small overage for each additional MB. This way, you don’t have to worry about a slight overage forcing you to upgrade or lose traffic.

Services and Specializations

Earth Girl Hosting offers three basic/WordPress hosting plans, depending on how much space and traffic you expect. All of their shared plans include unlimited email accounts, free WordPress installation, and cPanel control panel.

On the ecommerce side, Earth Girl Hosting has two options for potential customers. The first is specifically designed for customers of Pure Ecommerce, a site that provides a complete ebusiness solution (website, inventory, business training, etc). These hosting plans closely resemble Earth Girl’s WordPress packages, except with higher bandwidth and disk space, and free Premium Cart installation.

Earth Girl Hosting also offers its own ecommerce solution, for customers who are not a part of Pure Ecommerce. This is a one-size-fits-all plan, which provides a base amount of storage and bandwidth, and then charges a flat-rate fee for every MB you go over. This plan includes free domain registration as well as GlobalSign SSL, SSH security, and free installation for Open Cart 2.0 or PrestaShop.

Support and Customer Service

Earth Girl Hosting offers telephone and service-ticket support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Security and Backups

All hosting plans include a free, unlimited Live Drive account, which can be used to back up your website and your personal computer files.

Billing and Payment Policies

Earth Girl Hosting accepts payments via Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and PayPal.

What We Couldn’t Find

Earth Girl Hosting is primarily geared toward individuals looking for a simple hosting experience (for example: applications are installed for you), so they avoid getting into the more technical side of things. So there were some information that was immediately available to us:

  • No information is provided about the location of Earth Girl servers, nor the type of security measures in place at their datacenter.
  • Earth Girl does not provide specs for their server hardware.
  • No uptime guarantee is mentioned.


If you’re looking for a simple approach to website hosting or ecommerce, Earth Girl Hosting is definitely worth considering. They offer a small selection of plans, making it easy to choose the best option for your project, and they install the software you need to get your site up and running right away.

The only concern we have is over Earth Girl’s pricing policy. While the intention of their flexible pricing plan is good — if you go over a little, you won’t be charged for a full upgrade, or risk your site being temporarily offline — it could become quite costly if you go way over on storage or your site experiences a huge traffic spike. This is particularly notable with their starter plan, which includes a very limited amount of storage space.

On the other hand, all Earth Girl Hosting customers are eligible to receive free, unlimited cloud storage through Live Drive. Given that Earth Girl’s starter package costs less than most cloud storage plans, this is quite a deal.
