Love them
Jeanne Wilmot,

The 24/7 live chat has saved me many times and is always very helpful. I wish the domain hosting were included in the reseller so I could set up the domains for clients more easily. Would be nice to be able to invoice client... More s directly from the reseller account or at least have multiple credit cards for payments from clients. The free SSL is great considering how much others charge. But it is a nuisance to constantly have to regenerate the certifications. This is the 4th hosting provider I have used in 5 years. So far have stayed the longest with them. After the big name ones, this customer service is a dream come true. Less
Inmotion is super great
Nana Tamakloe,

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

Fraudulent Billing and Renewal Billing Practices
Jonathan Howard,
2.0
This company (which provides very average and normal service) engages in dishonest and deceptive billing tactics. Two years in a row I was billed incorrectly. This year - I cancelled - using their very complicated method an... More d they still charged me. I am disputing and filing complaints with the State.
Everyone should know they are a terrible company with terrible customer service. I recommend staying away.

Changing hosts!
Nilla's Photography,

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!

Winner: InMotion Hosting

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

When comparing GreenGeeks and InMotion Hosting there are many important things to look at. While both of them have excellent hosting services, GreenGeeks is a better choice because they not only have top of the line hosting services, but also generate 3x more green electricity than they use. You can use GreenGeeks in Europe too, which is not available with InMotion. This, combined with their top of the line tech support teams and great prices helped to make them the winner here.
