I recently recommended InMotionHosting's (WordPress Hosting - WP-2000s) to a few clients. I thought I was providing a superior product to what they previously were using (GoDaddy).
Boy, I was wrong. Front-end performance is so-so, but nothing exceptional. BUT where I was flabbergasted was their back-end performance.I went to upload 11 images into WordPress. These images totaled 11.2 MB. It took over SEVEN minutes to upload those 11 images. The CPU usage in cPanel was maxed out. So while I was waiting for these to upload, I went to my personal website, logged-in, and uploaded the same 11 images in less than 60 seconds. (I'm using A2Hosting on a mid-level plan that is comparable "on paper" to the InMotionHosting WP2000s plan).I reached out to InMotionHosting support and in summary, was told that "Speeds Vary" on the backend. This translates "Sorry, You're Out of Luck, so pay 4 times as much for our VPS hosting".I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.
Hacked within hours of installing and SECURING Wordpress
We purchased a new Wordpress-specific hosting account with InMotion yesterday afternoon. Immediately I changed the password to a random, stronger one, activated SSL, installed, activated and setup the Shield security plugin, added several .htaccess security measures, AND hid the login page. Within hours after that, I got an email from Shield that there had been a successful admin login to the site from an IP that google indicated was in Indonesia. A hack-filled php file was added to the main directory called "zz.php".Called InMotion this morning, and their primary suggestion is that it was an issue with my machine (where security is setup and no other issues are evident with countless other managed sites), and then they suggested we "hire an outside security expert." Seriously? The right call seems to be to hire a different host that takes security on its servers more seriously.
Powerhouse With Experts in Support and Consistency of Service Performance
Inmotion Hosting has become my preferred hosting. I started with Shared Business Hosting, then VPS and now Dedicated Server Hosting.
At every stage, before I moved to the next level of hosting, I have always gone out to see if I can find alternative hosting packages that can offer me more than what I can get from Inmotion Hosting Support and Technical Teams but I have always come back to rely on their availability, flexibility and reliability from their state-of-the-art data centers with their managed, custom dedicated servers which are extremely essential to run global eCommerce sites
I have been with several hosting but when I changed to InMotion hosting, I noticed the difference. No one has better technical support. They support 24 hours a day, that is, they always solve any problems. I've been with them for 2 years now and I do not change them for any other. Keep up and congratulations.
InMotion is a great hosting company. As every host has, there have been some problems, but they are always quick to respond and correct any issues promptly. Also, they are NOT, and probably won't ever be, a part of EIG.
We have been using InMotion Hosting's services for over 2 years now and have been incredibly pleased with our choice to host with them! Their customer service is absolutely unparalleled, and we are pleasantly surprised with their willingness to go above and beyond every time we contact them. When you couple that with their top-notch up-time, features, and value pricing, you have an obvious choice when it comes to web hosting.
