Reliable, no overselling. and fast replies to tickets

I have been hosting my blog with GeekStorage for over two years and they have been very reliable, no unexpected downtime and fast loading of pages, it is ideal hosting for a small blog like mine, although they also have other... More packages like VPS and dedicated hosting for those who need more. Prices are not the cheapest in the industry but you know they are not overselling, they give you what you pay for, no crazy promises of unlimited everything, just straight honest allocated resources to run a normal website, the rest of the features are the same you would expect from other hosts, cPanel, email, backups, etc, I definitely recommend them.

Inmotion is super great

I just moved there 3 months ago, prices are good. Support is good. And the server is much faster compared to my old one. The guys are casual and not like robots. I wish them much success. I feel at home here. Hope I wont need... More to review this review in future. Less

Stay away!

There is only one guy, and he is pathetic. Ergo, their sales department is pathetic. And, their customer service is also pathetic. You will wait HOURS for him to begin tackling even the simplest of issues. He will waste your ... More precious time by trying to blame it on the weekend, or on you doing something wrong. He behaves like a guy with and IQ of 50 or 60 who pays no attention to the details you give him about problems. I suggest you save your time, money, and blood pressure, and choose a better service provider. Less
Changing hosts!

I've been with InMotion for 4 years and only 1 site. Speed has got painfully worse.
Support isn't good and I've spent too many hours on chat and emails.
In October, my site was down for a several days due to Support's arrogan... More ce. My WP theme had a major update, which broke my site even though I built a Child theme.
I requested a restore and gave Support the exact file from which to restore. However, support restored from a 2018 backup! (Another issue - support creates all these old folders on my File Manager when dealing with problems, then doesn't delete them). It's only the 2nd time in 4 years that I requested a restore. Support was adamant that I was wrong and the restore was correct and from the Oct 2020 file. We know what we've designed and built over the years, right?
Finally after several days of my site looking incomplete - not really functional - and hours on chat, one support guy confirmed that the restore was from a 2018. He didn't know how that could of happened, even though I gave them the exact file name/date/etc. (I've built a staging site now.)
If that wasn't bad enough for the October month, last week InMotion emailed to advise that I had to delete files as my account was too large, or it was being moved to another server. I'd have temp details until propagation was complete. InMotion provides "unlimited disk space"!
I emailed twice to advise that I'd clear all the old folders (around 30GB) and heard nothing. Sunday just gone, I get another email saying the move was almost complete and not to make changes to my site or use temp details to make changes!
I've been arguing with InMotion ever since that I didn't want my account moved and that I wanted to delete the 30GB of useless files created by InMotion, but it moved my account regardless!
These are only a couple of problems that I've experienced in 4 years. I'm now looking at another host as I've had enough!
