August 28, 2012 4:11 pmComments OffViews: 45

InMotion is a top webhost for high performance websites. It isn’t the cheapest web host but it has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau of Los Angeles. Thanks to business-class hardware, this web provider delivers data up to six times faster than competitors can. Also, InMotion hosting uses cPanel, which is the industry’s most popular control panel among web designers at every skill level.

Service is available for Linux and Windows platforms. Business class hosting and WordPress hosting with InMotion start at $5.95/month. You can also get VPS hosting for $39.95 and up. Dedicated hosting starts at $199.95/month. This webhost review is focused mainly on InMotion’s business class hosting. 

Award-Winning Web Hosting

InMotion’s advertisers point out that when it comes to your business, saving $3 a month or so on webhosting should be the least of your concerns. Some of InMotion’s many awards include:

  • Best Dedicated Host, 2012
  • Best Business Host, 2012
  • Best WordPress Hosting, 2012
  • The Highest Recommended Web Company of 2010
  • Most Reliable Web Hosting, 2008

As mentioned at the start of this hosting review, InMotion maintains an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

cPanel for Design & Management

InMotion’s customers get a top control panel, cPanel, which greatly simplifies webpage design. From one dashboard you can work with email, domains, file management and databases. Here are some of the specific tasks that you can access with just one click through cPanel:

  • Create new email accounts
  • Change email passwords
  • Set up mailbox quotas
  • Set up parked domains
  • Create subdomains
  • Set up redirects
  • Backup your website
  • Manage FTP accounts
  • Create databases

Multiple Web Design Programs

Three main web design programs are used by InMotion customers: WordPress, Premium Web Builder, and SoHoLaunch.

The Premium Web Builder includes more than 500 website templates. It’s an ideal choice for newbies but has limited advanced functionalities. In contrast, WordPress is the world’s most popular software for blogging and includes thousands of free add-ons. Finally, SohoLaunch is the website builder from Fantastico, a script library. It’s powerful but might have less support available compared with WordPress.

Website Security

Every InMotion subscriber gets a powerful spam guard to help minimize wasted time with email. FTP over TLS/SSH is supported. Customers can use a shared SSL certificate or a dedicated SSL certificate and display the Comodo TrustLogo to their website visitors. A website backup button is available in cPanel and data are housed on two servers.

InMotion was the victim of a major hacking in 2011: More than 700,000 index pages were defaced. Is that a reason to avoid this host? No. The same hacker attacked Google and could attack just about any major player if given enough time.

Websites that are most likely to be hacked have vulnerabilities related to the customer’s own coding and use of flawed open source software. InMotion provides information about how website owners can update code to avoid known security vulnerabilities.

Customer Support

All technical support workers for InMotion are based in Virginia. Support is available around the clock on the phone (toll-free). Customers can also open support tickets, send email, or chat with a technician online.
