Inmotionhosting has been our one and only choice for going on 2 years. They have what the others offer but in a better package and better quality. Yea, the price is a little higher but you get more, so it equals out. Really do try them out and you wont look back at all the other cheap hosting companies you tried over the years.

Inmotionhosting is my favorite host on the list (not sure how a couple even made it however). They have everything a more advanced site needs especially a store front. Can't recall when our site was even down last and whenever I contact chat help it's always instantly available.

100% satisfied with this one...

I've used both their shared and VPS hosting, both are at the top of the industry. When I want reliable hosting, I go with InMotion.

There was a mysql error and it brought down the whole site, just error pages. I contacted support chat and within seconds they were online and got the issue fixed within minutes. I can't say enough to their support team on how much I appreciate the help!

Great prices and service. They run a top hosting company in my opinion among "affordable" companies smaller sites can afford. Support is always there and they actually answer your questions also...

Nothing big to fuss about, yet...

As the past reviews pretty much explain, they have a very good service with a lot less complaints than the other comparable web hosts. Really good ecommerce setup also if you need that. Can choose your own datacenter location also that is nice plus.

Review by: Chuck from Dayton, Ohio, February, 2012

I've found In Motion hosting to be the best small business host we've ever dealt with. We have tried a handful with not that much success. It always starts out good then goes downhill fast. But with them have been very satisfied so far. Highly recommended to anyone who needs a reliable presence.

We have tried our share of hosting companies in the past and haven't been that excited about either support or up time. In Motion support is second to none and the site is fast and up all the time.

InMotion Hosting - Tech Support Supreme

Review by: http://www.postmorekennels.com from Novato, CA, January, 2012

I have had no problems in customer service since I started with InMotion Hosting.

Startlogic has been a nightmare since they went "global" and it has shown up in their tech support. No one knows what anyone else is doing even when they read a ticket.

That's why we changed over to InMotion Hosting! You guys rock....
