InMotion provides two plans: One for personal hosting and one for business class. The personal hosting is vastly inferior to business class hosting, despite being cheaper. You have to pay for two years in advance and have a 30 day money back guarantee, so it is not a great option for most people. If you just want personal hosting for a blog or small site, InMotion does not provide the best service for the best price.
InMotion hosting provides more than just web hosting services. They have dedicated servers, VPS hosting, and custom website design services as well. They have an impressive display of awards for everything they do.
Businesses are more at home with InMotion and that is who they are courting. The Business Class plan is up to 50% faster than personal hosting plans, provides more spam protection, and performs daily backups. You also have 90 days guaranteed money back refund if you are not satisfied, and can pay month to month.
InMotion confusingly has three packages: Starter, Basic, and Max. Max obviously provides the most features, but is also the most expensive. Many competitors offer the same features in cheaper packages, and some provide even more. Be sure to know what you are purchasing, as there is a Business Class in addition to these three plans.
All of the packages work with Windows, Mac, and Linux, so the operating system you use makes no difference. They also include e-mail accounts and 24/7 toll free customer support. Aside from that, most of the features you will probably need are not included in the Starter package; you have to go with the Basic or Max package to get things like scripts, templates, and access to SiteBuilder. If you have no experience creating websites, the Starter Package will be of absolutely no use to you unless you use a website design program offline.
The in-depth customer support could be of great use to you here, as it could help you determine your business’ needs in a website. The help center is based in the United States, and an expert technician can field your questions if you do not find answers in their collection of tutorials and FAQs.
For the most part, the personal accounts are only good for people who already have hosting options or only need it for specific purposes. A good case would be a domain hosted for a Blogger blog. They are still more expensive than most of InMotion’s competitions’ plans, though. They also offer fewer features by plan, on the average.
InMotion is looking to build a clientele of businesses, not personal accounts, and its services and service plans are notably structured to attract businesses. If you are a business looking for an online presence, or an online business, InMotion is viable option, but webmasters with personal projects should look elsewhere for services.
