So I had switched most of my smaller blogs over to InMotion Web Hosting back in March 2015 and haven’t really looked back. InMotion hosting provided me a seamless way to transition my sites over, and in fact I was so busy that I didn’t have time to migrate my sites away from my previous hosting provider so InMotion Hosting literally copied everything from my old host to my new InMotion hosting for me and when it was all done my site was up and running flawlessly on my new hosting provider.
Now, they copied not only the WordPress theme, database and plugins, but they also transported over years worth of upload files, the ones you add when uploading images and media to posts so I had media and image files between 2009 and 2015 that was all transported and uploaded too. They do all of this for free for the 1st site you want transferred, and only charge a relatively reasonable cost for migrating additional sites. I found it to be well worth the extra fee because if it saved you 4-5 hours of time yourself migrating your site, this to me was worth the cost, time was worth more to me.
You get CPanel which I always prefer to make things easier too, the Paper Lantern theme for me is preferable as it is always easier to search and find the function you are looking for in CPanel than the traditional X3 interface.
Of course you also get a couple of great advertising starter deals when you sign up and start hosting with InMotion as well. Not only do you get $100 in AdWords credit, but you also get Bing/Yahoo credit, Amazon Product ad credit and listing on YP.com.
You get access to all your normal reports and analytics from the web host dashboard as well. But with Unlimited bandwidth and disk space you don’t have to worry about having to pay more just because you are storing more media files in your uploads folder, or have traffic spikes that use more bandwidth.
If you host video or audio files on your WordPress site itself and don’t use a cloud streaming service for your rich media, you will appreciate the unlimited disk and bandwidth space. I have a much more expensive hosting provider for my main site due to needing more CPU/RAM needs than a shared hosting plan and I don’t get unlimited disk space and it gets costly.
InMotion hosting is also incredible stable and the uptime has been very good, better than my previous Bluehost or HostMonster plans in the past. I also can tell you with all plans being hosted on SSD drives, you get better pageload and hosting speeds than you do and this is especially true if you leverage disk based caching like W3 Total Cache does when configured.
InMotion Hosting after 9 months of using it for 5 of my WordPress blogs gets my thumbs up, I have only had to open a single trouble ticket with the company in 9 months (since my original tickets to get my sites migrated). Opening a single trouble ticket in 9 months is actually a very long time, I had to open 2-3 on my main site in that length of time with a hosting provider that costs 4x as much per month.
For those who need more power than a shared plan, InMotion Hosting has pretty decent VPS hosting plans as well which give you more RAM for the price than most other hosting provider plans do. Overall if you get less than 7k visits per day on your site, then you may be able to be supported just fine on shared hosting leveraging either Incapsula, Cloudflare and W3 Total Cache.
