Since 2001, they are providing their best to the customer that’s why, they were able to gain the trust of about 300,000 registered loyal customers and these numbers are still growing on. This is one of the best and most popular and most advertised web hosting provider there in the market, with a little bit higher budget range. But, does it really worth this kind of popularity and that much higher price range? Let’s have a look on its pros and cons.
1. Better Uptime (99.97%)
We tested the services of InMotionHosting for a period of 10 months and found that its Uptime Rate is actually better than some of the best-known most popular web hosting providers and even .03% higher than industry standards which are 99.94%. (InMotionHosting Uptime is 99.97%, which is better than some others). The Average Uptime Rate during the whole testing period of 10 months is listed below.
2. More than average LoadTime (948ms)
During our whole testing period of 10 months, we found that its average load time during the whole period of 10 months was 948ms, and since last month, it has jumped up to 1048ms, which is somehow disappointing. But one thing that i’ve noticed is that it is Region based. Which means, it is much lower in some Regions (U.S, Canada, Europe, as low as 63ms) while higher in other Regions (UK, Japan, Asia, Korea). But it doesn’t affect that much on your audiences because of its higher uptime rate. Average Load Time during the whole 10 months is listed below.
3. Best Customer Support
I am so pleased to say that they have the best Customer Support team in the whole market. During the whole testing period, my experience with their support team was surprisingly awesome. I got always connected within the 2 minutes of my entry in the LiveChat and the answers by Customer Supports Agent were Instant and so relevant and it was even so helpful even when i’m outside US origine. So, yeah it’s got full marks in support services. One more thing that they have two data centers in the U.S with over 25,000 Customer Support Agents which makes it’s services even better. The staff is fully qualified, that’s the reason of their state-of-the-art customer services.
4. Money-Back Guarantee (90-Days)
InMotionHosting provides you a 90-Days money-back guarantee with Business, Reseller and VPS Hosting plans. That’s actually good thing because almost all the other web-hosting providers are giving you just a 30-days money-back guarantee specially with VPS and Reseller plans. This shows that how much these people (at InMotionHosting) are confident about their services. This is even a taktik to encourage new people to try their services without the risk of losing their cash. And if someone finds it not suitable, that person can easy apply for a refund within 3-months of subscription (90 days).
5. Apps & Integrations:
It is another thing that makes InMotionHosting, stand out of the crowd, that is the integration of different Open-Source apps and Integrated plugins. It makes it somehow, leading in the open-source market. They are backed up with over 400 applications which are open source, and You can find everything from popular content management systems like WordPress and Drupal to shopping carts or eCommerce systems like Prestashop and Magento as well. So this makes it an awesome choice for the new users to get started with.

InMotionHosting provides you Free Website Transfers so that you can easily migrate to their hosting services, without spending anything extra. There are some other web-hosting platforms which offer great services but to migrate to their services, you have to pay a one-time fee atleast. But the good news is that, while getting InMotionHosting Services, you don’t have to pay anything extra than your hosting fee. But on the other hand, you may face some downtime during the migration process so that makes the deal pretty average. But don’t worry. Once your site has been completely migrated, that won’t be an issue anymore. You’ll get all the features of InMotionHosting with a perfect Uptime Rate at all.

1. Not-so cost efficient:
The Advertised prices of InMotionHosting plans, are great and perfect for value in the first site, but these prices are just for the 24-month subscription plans. And after that, the prices will jumped to full. And they don’t offer monthly subscription plans as well. And annual plans are a way higher. But otherwise, the services and features that InMotionHOsting is Providing, are Great so, you can’t complaint that much.
2. Slow Verification Process:
In order to maintain a perfect security, InMotionHosting Required New Customer to Verify from their Cell-Phones. And in Rare Cases, they can even ask you for a Photo-ID Verification as well.

Do we Recommend InMotionHosting?
Well the answer is both Yes and No. If you are looking for a perfect solution for your eCommerce site, without caring for your budget, then just go for it. But please keep in mind that this hosting service can crash a little bit and you may find some slow loading times, but otherwise, it offers perfect features that cover it all. On the other hand, it is not-so Budget-friendly, that means that if you go with this web host, you’ll have to pay a higher fee than some of the other web-hosting companies ask for. It’s price tags are a little bit high, but again, the features it provdes, are awesome and that covers it all.
