Design Development Domain Names Hosting Blog iPage Tips InMotion Hosting was founded in 2001, giving them over a decade of experience in Online Marketing providing affordable quality web hosting. SEO This company is well known for their affordable personal hosting plans, as well as for the cost effective, high-performance business hosting solutions. As a top provider of hosting services, InMotion has received Social Media certifications from prestigious organizations, such as the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and CNET. Wordpress Plugins In this Inmotion Review, you’ll discover my experience researching and testing their hosting. Wordpress Speed Is InMotion Hosting Reliable? Wordpress Themes In our InMotion research, we found they use fast Linux and Unix technology to run their servers, which are monitored 24/7 for reliability. They employ staff to watch for signs of problems and are often able to solve them even before they affect the customers. InMotion guarantees a 99.9% uptime for all their plans, from the cheapest personal solutions to the high-end business plans.Generated with Page 1 / 11
  2. 2. UNIQUE: InMotion Hosting is one of the few providers that has more than one data center, which ensures better speeds and higher service availability. Even better, the VPS and Business Class plans benefit from an unique feature called Max Speed Zones. This feature lets the users placed in the proximity of InMotion’s two data centers to browse the hosted websites 6 times faster than the users from the rest of the world. InMotion’s efforts to ensure uninterrupted availability and excellent service have attracted the praise of thousands of customers, which is visible from the positive reviews and the CNET and BBB certifications received by the provider. Uptime Data: 99.72% Uptime Based on 201,891 checks since Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008 Performance Hosting at an Affordable Price InMotion has hosting solutions addressed to most segments of the market from individuals to small and mid-sized business. For personal use, InMotion provides three types of plans from as little as $3 per month – the Value Class Starter, Basic and Max. The differences between the three plans are given by the resources allocated to the account, including disk space and bandwidth. The Max plan (the top choice according to InMotion) includes more resources, but also supports more parked domains, up to five FTP accounts, and two MySQL databases. Value Class plans offer the following features: 2 STAGE SPAM PROTECTION 2 BANDWIDTH PROVIDERS (BETTER PERFORMANCE) AUTMATED WEEKLY BACKUPS 30 DAYS MONEY BACK (OUR FAVORITE) GUARANTEE Its bestsellers are the Business Class hosting plans, including the Launch plan at $5.95/month, the Power plan at $7.95/month and the powerful Pro plan, which costs $13.95/month, but allows you to host up to 25 websites on a single account. All three Business Class solutions offer unlimited disk space and bandwidth; the difference between the plans is made by the number of domains supported, including addon domains, parked domains, and subdomains. Business Class plans include the Max Speed Zones technology, InMotion’s exclusive technology that redirects traffic according to the geographical position of the visitors. All Business Class clients can benefit from the following: 4 STAGE SPAM PROTECTION 5 BANDWIDTH PROVIDERS DAILY BACKUPS 90 DAYS MONEY BACK GUARANTEE MAX SPEED ZONES ECOMMERCE READYGenerated with Page 2 / 11
  3. 3. ONE MONTH MINIMUM CONTRACT Easy-to-use Control Panel InMotion offers the industry-leading cPanel administration tool for all types of plans, both personal and business. cPanel is recognized as an excellent tool that simplifies web host administration and allows even non-professionals to easily and efficiently run web hosting accounts. Their cPanel control panel includes powerful functions that enable users to run and configure all aspects of their account: mail functions, domain administration, database administration, script installation, and much more. One of the greatest benefits of cPanel is the fact that includes the Fantastico script library, which lets you install web applications such as WordPress or Joomla, with just a few clicks. Build Your Website Quickly And Easily InMotion offers the Site Builder application for most of its web hosting plans, excluding the cheapest personal plan, the Starter. All other personal plans include the Site Builder Standard version, while the Business Class solutions include the Site Builder Premium version. Site Builder is a next generation website builder that enables InMotion’s customers to design, create, and deploy attractive, modern-looking websites that impress visitors. Site Builder Premium offers support for more than 500 website themes, meaning that is easy to create a unique and original online presence, without spending a fortune on the services of a web designer or developer. After working with InMotion’s Premium Site Builder, we can say that the application is powerful yet accessible to most users. In fact, the tool is so simple, that it allows website publishing in only two steps: first, choose a theme according to your tastes, and second, create your content. Note that each account includes one Site Builder license (for one website). If you need to use it for moreGenerated with Page 3 / 11

Start Selling Your Products Online If you’re looking for an affordable and easy to use eCommerce platform, InMotion Hosting may be the right answer for you. First of all, the Pro and Power Business Class plans come with Premium Site Builder including the EZ Commerce module. EZ Commerce makes it easy to create and run an online store, without being necessary to manually create additional databases or to install third-party scripts. The EZ Commerce module supports all essential functions of a quality eCommerce platform, such as support for multiple shipping methods, payment gateways, invoicing, and product management. We highly recommend using EZ Commerce, because it takes the guesswork out of online store installation and management. For personal plans and the Launch business plan, you still have the option to install an eCommerce platform, such as Zen Desk, by using the Fantastico script library. Excellent Customer Support InMotion offers friendly and responsive customer service, 24 hours a day, 365 days a week. From our experience, the staff is professional and eager to help, so you’ll be able to solve your hosting problems quickly and without headaches. Before submitting a support ticket, we recommend checking out the comprehensive knowledge base, the online tutorial section, as well as the active community forums. Chances are that you will find the answer to your query there, without wasting any more time. If I Don’t Like InMotion, Can I Get A Refund? InMotion is confident that its hosting services will meet your requirements and satisfy all your hosting needs. To back their claims, they offer two types of guarantees. Cheap and Personal hosting plans benefit from an unconditioned 30-days money back guarantee. If you buy one of their Business Class plans, you benefit from an extended 60 days unconditional guarantee, for a complete peace of mind.

They admit their fault but assume no liability. For all that I lost they are offering a 3 month free extension of my contract, or a pro-rated refund as a “special” favor. It took this guys two and a half days to admit that all my work was gone. But their tech support is so uncoordinated that as of today, four days later, I’m getting messages from them saying that they are diligently working on an issue, even though their Customer “Care” Manager, wrote me a message saying all was lost. By the way, I tried to speak to this “manager” and he was always busy in another phone… So, if you want to risk your work, work with this guys. Its up to you.

I don’t know about you, but InMotion Hosting has been my partner in keeping my websites in a very good status for 3 years now. I never had a hard time with its user-friendly tools.

In addition, it also has, like most of the domain services, a free registration of your own domain name.

If you are going to ask me, the domain host that you should use is InMotion. Almost every domain have the same features, designs and purity. The only difference between the domain hosts are their prices. Some are high, some are low. It doesn’t really matter, though.

However what’s terribly frustrating is my experience with the inconsistency in 1 – getting an agent who could actually understand the nature of the request was horrendous. I took multiple attempts and 2 callbacks to finally end up responding after more than 4-6hrs with “hopefully” the right follow up. 2 – Once you actually to get someone he can correctly understand your request – is now the waiting part in which in all fairness would seem to be a reasonable question to ask yet – no one can validate or commit to some sort of reasonable ETA. Yet in some reading – I’ve seen mentioned comments that inmotion takes pride in responding to all request within an anticipated SLA of 60min. – well 5-6hrs later is a far difference So if you must consider any special request – you better hang on to you hats for a long ride and hope someone understands anf gets it right However your basic baby type request needing a quick answer… yeah they can manage those ok.
