I switched to Inmotion Hosting a few months ago and am so glad I did. I was unhappy with the responce tile of Godaddy on technical issues like my server being down. Network Soulutions was ok but they didn't offer many addons. Would recommend InmotionHosting to anyone. Five Stars!

Your tech people are very helpful! You guys doing great work but only would point out two things. The first month I signed up my server was not back up and lost all of the data. The last was the hacker which I understand wasn't your fault but tooks days to get through the support numbers. I think in the future if something happens get more personel on the phones to speak to clients.

InMotion Team Rocks

Review by: www.waltgamble.net, from West Linn, Oregon
        I recommend this host

I came to be an InMotion client by way of my webmaster switching my eMail server at the last minute - late night too. Needless to say the word "panic" did come to mind from previous disasters called "transitions" by you IT geeks.

Each time I created a problem or there has been a system change InMotion came thru. Regardless of the day or hour I've received exemplary attention, never patronizing. I can ask the dumbest questions! Thanks InMotion. Walt Gamble

Fantastic customer service and quality

Review by: www.svrees.com, from USA
        I recommend this host

I never have trouble getting in touch with a real person on the rare occasion of a problem, even if they are in a crunch. When I do need assistance, I've found the support to be competent and honest, none of the BS you get from a lot of hosts. Sincerely interested in solving the issue.

The price is good - more than you'd pay with the cheapest hosting, but well worth the little extra.
