Inmotion Hosting Review
Technical Expertise in Linux and Unix Operating Systems


InMotionHosting was founded in 2001 and has since enjoyed a growing customer base. They have offices in Virginia Beach, Virginia on the East Coast, and Los Angeles, California on the west coast. In 2005, they received Hosting-Review.com’s Best Unix / Linux Hosting award for 2005. They boast of their excellence in customer service and technical expertise in Linux and Unix operating systems.

You can get a free domain name for life if you opt in for one of InMotionHosting’s web hosting plans. There’s no setup fee and no other hidden fees. Their three plans are Launch, Power, and Pro. The plans are designed for individuals, as well as small-to-medium sized businesses. You don’t have to be an experienced web designer to take advantage of their programs, as you will be able to build your own quickly and easily with their advanced tools and resources.

Of course, you can just register a domain name without going through the website construction if you’re not yet ready to do so. Registering a domain costs $7.95 a year. There’s also the option to purchase WHOIS protection as well; this helps to protect your identity when registering a domain name. This service is $5 a year. This is important in this day and age, because anyone can pretend to be you and essentially ‘steal’ your companies identity with your WHOIS information.

The Launch Plan starts at $7.95 and has 30,000MB of disk space, 500GB data transfer, and 2,500 email accounts. The Power Plan, one step up from Launch, starts at $9.95 a month and has 60,000MB of disk space, 750GB data transfer, and 5,000 email accounts. The Pro Plan starts at $19.95 and has 90,000MB of disk space, 1,000GB data transfer, and 10,000 email accounts.

All three plans offer a free domain name, SPAM Safe email protection, FrontPage Extensions 2000 through 2003, Web Site Builder, site statistics, phone support, and FTP access among others. The Power and Pro plans also offer more MySQL databases and additional subdomains. These are all designed for the more novice user and are affordable.

InMotionHosting does offer Business Web Hosting, Design and Marketing Solutions. If you’re looking to get away from doing everything yourself, their team of professional web designers will help build the site you’re looking for. This plan starts at $299 and is fully search engine optimized and operational. If this is what you’re looking for, their Managed Internet Presence (MIP) team will take care of the site construction, management and promotion. This plan includes search engine optimization, local and general search engine submissions, site effectiveness evaluations, and site statistics and visitor feedback.

InMotionHosting also offers V-Hosting Plans that are designed for businesses that have outgrown the need for shared servers. There are three packages to choose from and range in price from $49.95 a month to $199.95 a month. The disk space ranges from 80GB to 200GB and the monthly premium transfer ranges from 250GB to 1,000GB.

For customer support, their online support staff offers the quickest response time for your needs. InMotionHosting’s telephone support is available seven days a week, but be sure to check the web site for the hours, as it is not 24/7 service. If you’re looking for overnight support, you can email them. Also available is an online forum for customers so they can ask questions of other forum members. This too will help in receiving answers to the questions or issues they may be having.

In addition to the online forum, there are several detailed guides and tutorials as well for customers to use. These step by step guides are also available in Flash. Finally, there is a FAQ page to access. On this page, users can view articles previously posted, that might answer their questions. They also have the ability to submit a trouble ticket if they see no immediate solution to their problem.
