InMotion Web Hosting Review

InMotion Hosting Review

InMotion Hosting has significantly improved their web hosting service since our last review. They now offer unlimited disk space and bandwidth, support for most programming languages/environments, and one of the most complete support packages we've seen to date.
We would like to see this web hosting service support Ruby on Rails (RoR), and clearly post pricing for hosting upgrades such as dedicated IP addresses and SSL certificates.

If you don't need any of that 'fancy' web hosting, this service is still a solid company with a stellar support record. They're also highly favored among professional and personal web hosting users, as noted by their high marks on other popular web host review sites.

InMotion Hosting Package:

InMotion Hosting's pricing is middle of the road. If you're not happy with their service, you can cancel within 30 days of signup and get your money back.
Your first domain registration/transfer with InMotion is free. We didn't find pricing for additional domains, dedicated IP addresses, private domain registration, or SSL certificates.
This service offers standard domain services like search and registration, parked and add-on domains and subdomains at no added charge. If you want domain privacy or need to transfer multiple domains to this service, it will cost extra.
Ecommerce hosting through this service is compatible with Google Checkout, and shopping cart systems like Cube Cart, OS Commerce, and Zen Cart. You need to get an SSL secure certificate if you intend to accept credit card payments.
Another area where this service is not clear is their email offerings. They offer POP3, IMAP, SMTP, and Webmail, but don't list how many addresses or how much storage space you get. Forwarding, Aliases, catch-all accounts, auto-responders and spam protection are standard with InMotion's most basic package.
For programming, this web hosting service supports the following:
  • CGI
  • Perl
  • PHP
  • Python
  • SSI
  • Cron Jobs
  • FrontPage Extensions
  • MySQL
  • Flash / Shockwave
Multimedia supported on this web hosting service’s servers:
Real Audio/Video streaming
MIDI Files|
Other streaming formats may be available with a dedicated IP address

Ease of Use:
The services InMotion Hosting has to offer are among the easiest we've seen while reviewing web hosting services. Their customer service representatives can answer any question under the sun. You can't go wrong with that combination.

Help & Support:
Support and service is where this web hosting service really shines. They have 24/7 phone, email, and chat support; video tutorials, FAQs, a knowledgebase, and forums where InMotion customers can share their knowledge and expertise.

Site Creation Tools:
InMotion Hosting has a Premium Web Site Builder available with its Business Class plans, but not for the Personal/Cheap Hosting plans. This excellent tool can help you design complex websites within minutes.

Server Access:
InMotion Hosting allows access to your site and account settings through a control panel, and FTP access with 2000 FTP accounts.
InMotion Hosting’s .htaccess support makes password-protecting directories easy.

Marketing Tools:
Business Class Account customers have Google AdWords specialists at their disposal. They optimize your website for the keywords associated with it. Google AdWords is a very popular and accurate tool for determining what keywords you need to use on your site. Having people who are specialists at it is definitely to the advantage of InMotion Hosting's customers.

Reporting and Statistics:
You can use AWStats to look over your traffic with InMotion Hosting. You can see Web/FTP Stats, the latest visitors and peruse your raw log files.

Summary:
InMotion Hosting is a perfect choice for anyone that needs a low traffic web hosting service with an exceptional email service. They also support a quick and knowledgeable customer support and offer a 30-day money-back guarantee.
