Finding a decent webhost is a lot like dating; you usually have to try out a few before deciding whether or not they are boyfriend/girlfriend material.
Over the past 10 years I DID try out a few hosting companies before deciding that InMotion Hosting was indeed the ‘almost perfect’ internet partner for me.
The very first thing that impressed me with InMotion is that they requested (and even required) a brief phone conversation before activating my account. For me, that reflects a reputable approach to business that I admire.
Next I noticed that their servers are FAST. The true test of any web hosting company is to try logging into your cPanel on a Saturday morning (when everyone else is too) and see how fast things are running. When you are initially inclined to sign up with one of the more popular and well advertised hosting companies, take a minute and think about SPEED. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to work on your site and everything in your cPanel is moving slower than snails.
Another aspect that is important to me is that I can always get someone on the phone over at InMotion. Whether it’s a billing or technical issue, sometimes it’s nice to actually talk to a real person and get things quickly resolved.
I did use the phrase ‘almost perfect’ when referring to InMotion earlier in this review. These guys do not offer unlimited domains for your account. For instance, my hosting plan only provides me with 24 add-on domains but since I’m not using nearly that many, it’s been a non-issue so far.
I’ve been with InMotion for over two years now and consider myself a very satisfied customer.
