- Free Website Transfers
- Safe Application Rollback
- WP-CLI Available for Use with SSH
- Ruby on Rails Support
- Choice of MySQL or PostgreSQL Databases
- New Pro Plan SLA
- Google Apps Integration Made Easier
I have been using InMotion Hosting for 8 years now. Since day one, I’ve been completed satisfied with their service and continue to be impressed with their web hosting for my sites. If you are currently looking to get a website going, then InMotion is definitely worth your consideration. And, if you need hosting for your business web site, InMotion Hosting can really be a great choice. Their business hosting plans offer all the features you need combined with great customer support. Here is more detailed information to help you decide if InMotion is right for you:
Great User Interface and Easy Software Installation
InMotion Hosting uses the cPanel interface—by far the best to use. In addition, they now use the Softaculous software application installer. So whether you need WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, or another application for your website, you get easy, hassle-free installs. We like this much better than the Fantastico installer.
InMotion Hosting’s Speed and Reliability is Great
InMotion’s network speed and reliability have been excellent. Their Max Speed Zone technology allows you to use their multiple data centers for optimum speed. And their 99.9% uptime network keeps your site up and running smoothly. We have not had any server issues or problems. Below is a look at our error log which is clean:
Real Backup and Restore Services Provided
One of the best features of InMotion’s hosting package is that they give you legitimate backup and restore services. Other hosting companies claim to back up your data, but they then charge you to restore it! InMotion not only gives you automatic backups, they also will restore your data free once every four months. I’ve taken advantage of this feature and I’m sure glad they offer it!
InMotion’s Support is Excellent
InMotion Hosting’s customer support is also outstanding. On those few occasions where we’ve had to contact them, the response time has been great and their support staff is very courteous and thorough. In particular, their chat support is the best we’ve encountered. Below is a sample of a recent chat support session I had with Jason of Tech Support:
Michael: Hi Jason
Michael: I need to have my web stats manually updated. Can you help me out?
Jason A.: Sure thing. I’ll run them for you.
Jason A.: Which domain did you need them updated for?
[I specified the domain names here]
Jason A.: Gotcha. Give it 15-30 minutes to update and you should be good to go.
Michael: Great! Thanks for your help Jason!
Jason A.: Sure thing.
Jason A.: Thank you for contacting us! If you have any questions we are open 24/7. Call, chat, or e-mail any time.
I would appreciate any feedback you might have, positive or negative.
Jason A.: Thank you for your chat. Feel free to contact us again.
If you need web hosting for your business site, InMotion Hosting is highly recommended.
InMotion Hosting Data Center
On the hardware and network side of things, InMotion Hosting has proven to me that they are committed to providing the best specs and speeds possible. I was allowed to tour the InMotion Data Center in Los Angeles, CA, and saw firsthand how everything works.
Going behind the scenes at their facility, I was able to confirm their commitment to Data Center Security, Top End Hardware, and outstanding Data Protection and Network Availability. See my blog article for my complete review of the InMotion Data Center.
Here is an example of how my website speed has increased after switching to an InMotion Hosting SSD server:
More Improvements on the Way
In talking with Will Miles, Data Center Operations Supervisor, I’ve learned that InMotion Hosting will be continuing to expand and make improvements to their infrastructure. In addition to new racks and servers, they are now including SSDs in their Dedicated Servers. That means whether you go with Shared Hosting, VPS Hosting, or Dedicated Hosting at InMotion, you’ll be able to benefit from increased speeds with solid state drives.
InMotion Hosting’s Core Values
I really believe one of the main reasons I’ve enjoyed such great success with InMotion Hosting is their set of core values. When I spoke with InMotion’s Co-Founder Sunil Saxena, he mentioned how everyone in the organization (from himself on down) adheres to and lives by these values. The bottom line for them is that when their customers are successful, they are successful!
Update for 2017
And, 2017 looks to be an even better year for InMotion Hosting customers. I just recently had an exclusive in-person meeting with the InMotion team, where I got a preview of some exciting additions and improvement to their web hosting you can look forward to in the coming months. Here, I’m going to reveal to you the most exciting ones.
First, InMotion will soon be offering Free Comodo SSL certificates with their web hosting. Unlike Let’s Encrypt (which a number of web hosts are now providing), the Comodo certificates are suitable for all types of websites including eCommerce. Also, by the end of the second quarter of 2017, look for InMotion to start offering a Managed WordPress Hosting plan.
