Company Overview

Since 2001, Inmotion Hosting has been dedicated to providing the best web hosting solutions available. Inmotion Hosting is a popular choice for people, and websites, in need of everything from cheap hosting, virtual private servers, and dedicated servers to top business web hosting plans. Inmotion Hosting is, of course, accredited by the better business bureau.

Regardless of what type of plan you choose it will be filled with everything you need, and more. The prices are low, starting at only a couple dollars per month for a shared hosting account and to get an idea of what's included we thought that it might be a good idea to take a look at its features. A shared hosting account includes up to 200,000 MB Disk Space, 2,000 GB monthly transfer, a web builder and a free domain.

Their web hosting packages come with great customer service, expert technical support and seamless scalable solutions for every business need. The support team is available 24/7 via email, telephone and live chat. However, we'd recommend you to begin with having a look at their support center where you most likely will be able to find all the info you need.

Uptime and Reliability

99.9% uptime guaranteed, and 100% money back guaranteed are some features, through the Inmotion data centers. Max speed zones are offered; these will depend on where the client is located, and housing their data there, will result in the highest speeds for their site, and the best possible performance for their online site.

Control Panel and Software

Inmotion uses cPanel, the leader in online hosting needs. Not only do icons allow site operators to easily find and do what they need to complete on their page, it also allows them to monitor site stats, visitor stats, and critical information about their site. A c panel demo is also provided, so if you can't learn how to set up easily, the site will provide a tutorial, to teach you how to set up and monitor your site, through Inmotion hosting.

Support Performance

24/7 support is offered 365 days a year, through their toll free hotline; online tickets can also be submitted to the support desk and they are answered in a reasonable amount of time. Flash tutorials, and online FAQ sections are also available, if you want to find common answers, to common questions, and do not want to wait. Additionally, the fact that no time frame is given for the answer time, means it will vary how long you are going to wait on hold, when you call in for support, or if you need help with certain issues and do submit a online request ticket, to receive the assistance you need for your technical support issues.

Pricing, Value and Renewal Fees

The cheaper plan is okay for some, but the pricier one offers unlimited, and better hosting, for larger businesses.

The employee operated host, takes an approach where the customer comes first; since they are not only employees, they focus on giving you the best possible service in hosting. Several data centers, means you can use one closest to you, to ensure the fastest speeds, and reduce downtime for your site. A low price point in hosting, and two plan options, give you the ability to set up a site for a low price, and reasonable amount of features. With decent support, they are not the best at answering calls, but you are not going to sit on hold, or wait several days either, if you need an answer to a question.
InMotion Pros
  • Excellent Software with cPanel
  • Good, responsive 24/7 Support
  • Storage and Bandwidth unlimited
InMotion Cons
  • Pretty high 1st term prices (although renewal price reasonable)
