I would definitely recommend these guys!

Review by: http://www.StockWiseAuto.com, from New Jersey
        I recommend this host

Although I had a tough time migrating my very heavily modified cpanel account from BlueHost, IMH's tech sales and support team have delivered exactly what they promised. I am very pleased with the speed of our setup even for a 256M package!

I would recommend these guys to anybody looking to migrate from shared hosting when your site graduates.

Simple, Easy and...

Review by: OneWorldLabs, from USA
        I recommend this host

What more can you ask for than just simply having the system work, simple interface, reliable architecture and more E-Mail and storage than I can ever think of using. Easy support and cheap.... Been using them for 3-4 years and not had an issue.

Amazing Customer Service!

Review by: Ant, from Christchurch, NZ
        I recommend this host

Hi, I haven't been a customer for long so I haven't filled out my rating for the reliability and uptime or the server speed, but the customer service is exceptional.

The one thing I look for in a hosting provider above all else is customer service, if I send a request I expect it to be answered quickly and InMotion Hosting have done that throughout the whole account setup process, I'm now ready to roll with my new website and its all setup just the way I like it.

Bravo guys, keep up the good work!

Review by: http://www.aspenbloom-wellpet.net, from USA
        I recommend this host

InMotion has always gone above and beyond the call of duty to help remedy things They have always made suggestions to make things work better, then they have spent the time to talk me through any technical help I have needed; always helpful and patient. And the best part is, I have always spoken to an American! They get to the problem the same day and they fix it! InMotion has always worked with me to resolve any issues and in a very timely fashion. I am very pleased with their service.

Excellent budget hosting that is reliable. They're tech department is quick to respond and solve issues. Never had a problem with up time although site can be slightly sluggish from time to time. Only downfall is misses some features like SSH on shared hosting that competitors provide

inmotion is money well spent!

Review by: Julian, from Ghana
        I recommend this host

I have used a couple of hosting services and I can confidently say that none so far compares to what I am having and experiencing with inmotion hosting.

The servers are reliable and customer service is top-notch.

I would recommend them as second to none.

A Most Pleasant Customer Experience

Review by: Joel, from Manila, Philippines
        I recommend this host

I'm going to be honest, as a service, they're not perfect (as is pretty much all hosting sites) and I think some other hosting like GoDaddy might be faster, however when I had a problem regarding my billing and account details, they were on it like a Rabbit on a carrot and it was resolved within the day. I have to admit that I'm not a heavy user however for the level of customer service I got when I had a problem, I probably wouldn't think of switching ever... and to think I'm literally half a world away.
