Features Review- InMotion Hosting 2017
A. Speed Matters – Load Time Test
By becoming one of the fastest web hosting in 2017, inmotion is giving its customers a high value for money. We have made load test several times and it is unbelievable, we got comparatively higher load time while comparing to bluehost and hostgator. We have got values, which we have given below.
Generally SSD Driven drives are very fast and it should give very quick response. But we don’t know the reason yet, for Indian websites which is hosted in InMotion, load time is very much higher compared to other hosting’s that we are used.
We have some friends in US, who also have many websites hosted with Inmotion Hosting, but they are getting a huge speed than Indian websites. It may be due to the location of the servers they are getting high speed.
B. UpTime Test – InMotion Uptime Review 2017
We have tested InMotion hosting for the past six months to check its Up time. Our website experienced down time seven times. This is quite common with all other shared hosting’s but InMotion have a better performance while compared to others.
InMotion guaranteed a 99.99% Uptime but what we get was 99.96%. So if you are not running a business website, you can definitely choose Inmotion hosting in terms of Up time.
OCT 2016: 99.98%
NOV 2016 99.99%
DEC 2016 99.96%
JAN 2017 99.93%
FEB 2017 99.98%
C. Customer Care peoples care for You.
InMotion hosting is providing three types of customer supports to its customers. 24 x 7 Phone call, e-mail and Chat Support. They are giving free support but it is not providing premium support to lower level plans. We have many experiences with InMotion hosting customer care center and we are usually getting their response within half an hour for small queries.
But the better part is, you will get the answers for most of your queries from their support Community better than customer support.
InMotion hosting providing a world class security and it stands in the top 10 list of highly secure hosting’s. Even though it doesn’t have a layered security system like bluehost had, InMotion hosting has a real-time Spam check tool to filter spam e mails. Its SSD drives and Secure Socket Layer certificate improves the performance as well as security.
Other Advantages of Inmotion Hosting;
Inmotion is one of the first hosting company that providing solid state drives with every web plan
They constantly update and bring new equipment’s and new hardware for improving the hosting performance.
Every plan includes unlimited e mails and Storage place.
Flexible coding options are available.

But it In Motion has Some Disadvantages too…
Lower plans of shared hosting don’t have Monthly plans. You can only buy 12 months or 24 moth (or above) plans.
You cannot host in Windows servers.
Price of shared hosting plans are comparatively higher.
InMotion Hosting Review 2017- Our Verdict
InMotion hosting has a solid performance for its higher value plans, but for shared hosting, InMotion will not be a better option while comparing to Bluehost and Hostgator. They are trying to improve their performance in recent years by upgrading the equipment’s and services, but in 2017 InMotion hosting is high priced than its competitors.
If you are not worried about paying high price for lower plans, with minimum features, you can opt for InMotion hosting. If you want cheap and best hosting for your website, Bluehost or Hostgator will do a best job for you. You can get many offers by using some promo codes too.
