Inmotion Hosting Review

Inmotion Hosting Review is data I’ve scrounged up on the internet of other customers that have been using Inmotion Hosting. Some of these website owners have been with Inmotion Hosting for 6-8 years. Their opinion is based on their own experiences with Inmotion Hosting. What some of them have experience and say is like deja vu for me. It’s completely inconceivable that a company can operate in the manner Inmotion Hosting does and has been for some time now according to these customers. For a company to promote itself as having excellent Customer Support and a Technical Support group second to none, it’s funny how real people that live with Inmotion Hosting see it completely differently. Here is the truth about Inmotion Hosting from real people/users.

5 days later and still the same lame responses like “it should work that way”, “I don’t know whats taking so long”, “were going to get on that right away!”. Its been a waste of time. These guys say they know wordpress but do you really?

Thought they were great when I signed up. BUT WOW they are scary incompetent.

Their server crashed and they lost ALL our data!!!! They were not doing any backups!!!!!! Can you believe it? NO backups!!

They also didn’t notify us of them loosing their server (with our website on it)! They waited for us to notice our site was down!

Also… When you call them.. the message you get is to become an outsourced third party host. isn’t that their job!!!!!!!?????!


If you do run!! and decide to use HostGator.Com instead. Fill in the coupon code with “Aaspedia25” and get an additional 25% discount on any discounted hosting package from HostGator on us. Just our way of saying “Thank You” for listening.

Just an update. The nightmare lasted another month with constant babysitting and hold times required.

We upgraded to another host. Spent more money, but it was worth it. Never missed inmotion for a minute.

I think the issue with InMotion is they don’t have good systems. My current host takes care of things quickly and they don’t drop the ball. It’s sad to have to write this, but after all of the hold times and idiotic customer service reps who I had to almost micromanage to get anything done, they deserve it.

And if you think I’m just a negative person, check out my other reviews. They are all positive. It takes a lot to get me to this point of frustration with a company.

AVOID INMOTION if you want to keep your domain.

A domain hijacker from a foreign country, using only the last four digits of one of our credit cards, stole our domain. First, InMotion does not require people to be logged in to access a chat rep. Here’s what happened.

– Hijacker accesses chat from blocked sub-net IP. InMotion cannot tell where they came from.
– Hacker gives last four digits of credit card on file. Asks to change admin email address on file. Chat rep complies.
– Hacker adds new fake credit card to account. Chat rep helps.
– Day passes. Hacker uses fake credit card to recover password. Logs into account. Initiates domain transfer away from our account to a new web provider.


We log in, by pure luck, and in the course of attempting to change another service, find out our domains are IN THE PROCESS OF BEING STOLEN.

InMotion says they are “helpless” and we need to contact the new registrar. We get emails apologizing and defending their security practices.

We STILL do not have our domain back a week and a half later and get only form letters or defense of their actions. No manager has called despite repeated pleas for assistance.

For the safety of your business, DO NOT use InMotion Hosting.

Use HostGator.Com instead. Fill in the coupon code with “Aaspedia25” and get an additional 25% discount on any discounted hosting package from HostGator on us. Just our way of saying “Thank You” for listening.

I switched to inmotion hosting briefly because it looked good and it is endorsed by Now I realize this is a marketing promotion with CNET.

While tech support from Inmotion is good, inmotion didn’t provide enough juice to keep my WP website up and running if I had more than 5 visitors on the site. It would slow to a crawl, or even stop working. I
