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

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
Avoid Fast Comet please.

They are constantly deceitful. Claim you can send 50mb attachments but forget to tell you they encrypt all mail and a 30mb attachments fails. Say they give you 1000mb mail space but dont tell you encrytion uses that space so ... More you only get like 650mb of space per email account. Cloudflare is constantly looping preventing you from logving in. Live chat support tries to put blame on your end and rarely solves problems, just blames then on your software or machine ( "works on my end"). Use anybody else. Less

Winner: FastComet

Aviran Zazon HostAdvice COO

FastComet and InMotion are two exceptional hosting companies that really do a good job at meeting, and even exceeding the needs of their customers. When doing a comparison of these two companies, it is necessary to really get down to the ‘nitty gritty’ to see which one is superior. When we looked closely at what people had to say about each company’s features, support, pricing, reliability, and more, we came to the conclusion that FastComet edges out InMotion by a just a bit in each category. Because of this, we can confidently say that in this comparison, FastComet is the winner.
