I am happy to say that even in the long run, Inmotion provides great satisfaction to me as they prove to be reliable, professional, and available all year round even though I live in a different time zone with almost 10 hours difference.

Keep up the great work.

Best.

Excellent hosting for a bargain price

Review by: http://www.warscaleonline.com, from Australia
        I recommend this host

I have been working with InMotionHosting for the last year. From the beginning the customer service was great, my account was setup in a couple hours top (against other companies which had me waiting for days and gave me no answer). The server service is great, always up and completely configurable. And if you can't do something, IMH Support is top notch and will have you working in a matter of minutes. I'm starting this second year of hosting and I can only recommend this service to friends and family.

Great technical support

Review by: www.sl-films.com, from Alexandria, Virginia
        I recommend this host

I'm a small business owner and I've been using InMotion for awhile now and have been happy with it. No difficulties or issues except yesterday when my email stopped working. I contacted technical support and had a live chat person immediately. The technician was very clear and patient and made some good recommendations. I was surprised at how long technical support stayed online with me in dealing with my issue. But he stayed with me until it was resolved and I was pleased. I also feel like I learned something by going through this process which is usually very exasperating.

Outstanding Customer Service

Review by: Volleyball1on1.com, from Los Angeles
        I recommend this host

The customer service provided is superior to all others we have worked with. The phone service is always professional and issues are quickly resolved. Full explanations are given and most importantly they teach what you need to know in easy to understand terms.

Inmotion Review

Review by: Jim, from BC, Canada
        I recommend this host

This is an initial review based on a few weeks use.

After big problems with HostPapa I looked around for a hosting company that got great reviews for support and InMotion has met and exceeded expectations

I have used the web chat for support several times with instantaneous repsonse. Today I had a problem after installing PHP list via Fantastico. It took about 3 mins from the start of the chat to diagnose and fix the issue, there and then. I just wish the server was a little closer (I live in Canada) because network bandwidth can be heavy up the west coast at times.

Exceptional!

Review by: Oakley Ann, from Fort Collins, CO
        I recommend this host

This hosting company has a great price, all the bells and whistles and their support staff goes way beyond my expectations. I am technology challenged.. This support staff was extremely patient and answered my questions in detail--more like educating--and even encouraged me to continue my quest when I felt overwhelmed with the learning process. I know this staff by name now and feel like I'm calling friends. If you need a reliable hosting company that cares about their customers, InMotion Hosting will more than meet your needs.

InMotion is the best!

Review by: Lloyd, from Orlando, FL
        I recommend this host

I have been a user of InMotion for a number of years. I am constantly amazed at their customer response both in technical and sales issues. Each of their reps are extremely knowledgeable and are able to solve my problems with ease. Their response time is very fast and I have never had a problem they couldn't solve the first time. I was originally recommended to their site from a friend. How right he was and as a result I tell my friends not to consider anywhere else for hosting! And, lastly, you are always talking to someone in the USA!!!

Reliable & Fast

Review by: www.santafevirtualfleamarket.com, from Santa Fe, NM
        I recommend this host

I have been using Inmotion Hosting for about a year and find it to be seamless, fast, reliable and the tech staff is friendly and helpful. You can't go wrong by choosing them. As you expand, they offer services for every level. Cpanel is easy to navigate and the teaching videos are easy to understand.

Great Service, Always Available :)

Review by: http://marbulate.com, from Cambridge, MA
        I recommend this host

I have consistently, always had good customer service with Inmotion hosting, and i've done everything from PHP to Wordpress, and asked them all sorts of questions.

Someone is always available via the Live Chat, and they've always been able to answer my questions, they're very polite, it's just always good! And i've registered several domains, changed my primary domain several times, been with them for a while now. Very happy with my choice to go with Inmotion Hosting.
