    A huge massive issue with the support lately. My five sites got hacked almost daily and they said it has nothing to do with them but my script was the cause. All sites locked down including the others with same ip range. I do not understand why and I had no choice but to move.

    Inmotion was a hard decision when we decided to switch hosting company. I have searched through reviews in websites, blog and forum so many choices came in my mind. It was very hard because there were a lot cheaper and much better offers to choose from. Finally I chose them because of a good BBB rating. After signing up I found inmotion support are very experts in their field. good as advertised.

  • Unhappy former customer says:

    I’ve hosted web sites with 3 different companies and these guys are THE WORST! They overcharged my credit card (without my authorization), and when I tried to move my domain to another hoster, they shipped it off to australia and won’t provide the authorization I need to return it to the provider I want to use. Steer clear unless you want to get ripped off! Number 1 rating is impossible for me to believe!

    Before I am here with inmotion my website was hosting with mochahost. The first month went well until technical issues and all I found was….really ***king bad customer service. They had maintenanced the server and got my website messed up but did not take any action to give customer a notice, never a single email. They took full five business days to answered my email!! Their reply was useless. I have been told they cannot do anything because they do not know what was caused the issue.

    I searched hosts around the web and my choices where webhostingpad and inmotion but I decided to give inmotion a try because of their customer service reputation. They are more expensive but tends to better from what I have read. Three months with them is a heaven. First they helped me transferred my site from that idiot and even pointed out what caused the issue (mochahost had my core files become overwritten with very old backup that’s it). Everything went smoothly and run perfectly until now.

    Great technical support ever!! I built my website using wordpress for two years but still new to opencart and every e-commerce platform. I didn’t know where to start to integrate opencart into my wordpress site. Of course there is available plugins for using opencart with wordpress but I still have no clue where to begin. I asked support without much expectation but only if they might take time finding answer for me instead of searching it myself. Surprise I got answer for that issue within five minutes or less!! Someone may think they should done it within a few but since the issue was a bit complex then five minutes was really acceptable.

    I was about to switch hosting company because of really bad uptime and services. I had contacted around 4 companies before inmotion and they all were failed to transfer it. A website made by my own custom script ( I hired a programmer in getafreelancer.com to made it) and the script itself has many restrictions. I just contacted inmotion to see if they “might” be able to get the job done. I was surprised that the transfer went smooth and flawlessly. That was about the beginning between me and this company.

    Inmotion never failed me and worth the money I paid for. Good hosting with great support and uptime, recommended.

    I have decided to move from my old host to inmotion and found they are much better than expected. reliable and lot of features than I ever imagined. the best part is their tech support through live chat. I know nothing about technical stuffs and I know some of my questions were retarded (if looking back from now). Still he treated me with respect so I must give two thumbs up for inmotion support.

    I have been with inmotion for a full five years and never wanted to look elsewhere anymore. There are a lot of “better dealss” in term of price and features but they are useless if they are not stable. My reason for staying with inmotion that long is the quality of support and great uptime, plus secured and downtime is very minimal.

    If you are looking a hosting company for your precious business website then inmotion won’t disappointed you. you may find some cheaper place but I guarantee that you will get a lot more for your online venture by spent a bit more on reliable hosting company.

    Inmotion is worth for every cents I paid. My wordpress website got kicked from a previous one because of the changed in their terms about disallowed on a certain plugin. I had only 48 hours to transfer my website into another one. Luckily I decided to pay a bit higher with inmotion and found they are great!!

    Uptime is perfect and huge resources gap for shared hosting. support is very good either.

    Switched to inmotion was the most right thing we done in last year for our website. We had a bad experienced from dreamhost (an opposite name, nightmare host, should be a correct name actually). Their uptime was sucks but their price was really expensives unless you chose to pay them 10 years in advanced, which we didn’t do that. We thought we paid a high price for quality but we were wrong. They had many downtimes but we paid them one year in advanced.

    Finally we decided to threw our money and moved to another company over. How could you handle for 6-8 hours downtime 3 days in a row? We were looking for some good company and found inmotion. We were hesitated because their price is almost same as dreamhost – a bit monthly expensive, and afraid if their quality may be similar to dreamhost. We did analyze and found no really negative review toward the company so we decided to try them out.

    Glad we switched!! Their support is heaven and uptime is the best!! We could not say more but try them and you won’t disappointed.
