Great Responsive Support with a System that continues to Improve
Henry A Castillo,

I was someone who wanted the most affordable option, and with Bluehost I found a solution. I have used Bluehost for years, and one thing that was always of quality was their support.
Their system was not the most user friend... More ly at the beginning, but it has since made huge strides.
Reviewing my server, installing WordPress, accessing my backups; are all easy to do now with little to no struggle.
I'm so impressed with their commitments to improving their services and products that I'm here writing this review.

I highly recommend InMotion
Diane Lapp,

After an extensive amount of research, I selected InMotion to host my organization's website for ongoing conference registration and we are still using them today, ten years later. They have proven to be extremely reliable wi... More th no downtime issues whatsoever. The editing interface (Wordpress with Boldgrid) is user-friendly. I've had no problems creating and maintaining website content -- editing is quick and easy, and changes appear immediately. On the rare occasions that I've had a question, the support team was very responsive and helpful. If you are seeking a reliable, user-friendly, low-maintenance web hosting service, I cannot recommend InMotion highly enough. Less

They will steal your money after you cancel... and even try to steal your password!
Jullian Hartford-Smith,

I cancelled my Bluehost account in 2018, as the platform is unstable and glitchy. But alas, I was charged for the account in 2019... and 2020... and 2021. Each year I have contacted Bluehost to make sure my account is cancell... More ed, and ask for a refund of the unauthorised charges. Each year they have refused to refund.
Finally today I managed to get Bluehost to refund the 2021 charge - after 3 hours talking with their staff. They refused to refund the 2019 and 2020 charges, even though I gave them the reference number showing I cancelled in 2018.
So they still owe me approx. AU$450!
To process the 2021 refund the staff member said she needed the last four characters of my password, sent to her via chat. That is an absolute 'no-no' in IT! How dodgy is this company? Even dodgier than it appears on the surface I suspect.

Gone seriously down hill in the last several years

I'd been with inMotion Hosting for 7 years now. They used to have great tech support and very responsive servers. If I had a problem with server speed or email IP addresses they would change/correct things. That ended i... More n the last year or two. Now a shared server is dirt slow and all they have is excuses. It got so bad it would take 30 seconds for a WordPress page to load on the backend (minimal plugins & no customizations). When I complained they just provided lame excuses no solutions. In desperation I hired a professional tech to speed up my site, he said the problem is with the hosting provider, he couldn't do much. He suggested A2 Hosting and the move alone solved ALL my issues! Avoid inMotion! Less

Winner: InMotion Hosting

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

Comparing InMotion Hosting and BlueHost side by side is a great way to figure out which one really has the better services. When you go down the list and see all the information available, it quickly becomes clear that InMotion is the winner of the comparison. They are ranked higher in reliability, pricing, user friendliness, support, and features. They also offer unlimited hosting packages, more disk space and RAM on VPS’s and dedicated servers, and they offer many other advantages as well. If you want the best out of these two companies, InMotion is the clear choice.
