In fact, everytime I have needed help the customer service has been amazing and has quickly resolved my questions. Excellent service.

The primary goal is to satisfy the clients' needs. Would the offered services not be at the expected level, the Company would offer a 90-day money back guarantee.

ConclusionAccording to Jason Hong, Partner Channel Specialist, the Company's main clients are small-medium companies, and they differentiate from other hosting companies by the fact they adjust their services to each particular company, not offering just a general plan. Moreover, they make sure their stuff is well trained (al least 160 hours of training before they respond to clients' inquiries), being available 24/7 for their customers.
While many clients are very satisfied with InMotion Hosting Services, naming the customer service "very knowledgeable, friendly, and fast" (99.8% uptime), other customers treat it as "nothing more than average when it comes to hosting packages".
However, the Company is planning to improve its performance in order to better satisfy the clients. On March 5, 2013, Mike Zyvoloski, Marketing and Development Specialist, announced that they were planning to launch a brand new updated website which would be a total redesign of the old one. Moreover, they continuously work on improving their products and services.

When I have more time I intend to respond to your feedback requests in greater detail, but for me it is been a total pleasure to connect with your organization. Every time I have called I have received very professional top-notch help. It is such a pleasure to talk to pleasant honest people. Your response time to my requests is phenomenal. Even in your high calling times to connect to your sales or technical people I have waited only a 3 to 5 minutes the few times you did not answer right away.
If I may suggest to make this customers experience even better is to give your customers the option to turn off the music while we are placed on hold.
With much appreciation for all that you provide."

I had a VPS with another company and a business site with another one, and Chase got me migrated to InMotion seamlessly and fielded literally dozens of requests from me as I got up and running there. I think he may have pulled out most of his hair dealing with all my requests for assistance, but he handled it excellently and provided exemplary customer service.
The support I received from Chase made it very clear to me that I'd picked the right company to move my business to.
Two thumbs-up for InMotion!
I have work with providers in US and Europe, these guys win hands down ... hope they never get bought out ...
Again and again the technical support team at Inmotion Hosting has been very helpful and patient in assisting and fixing our problems. We purposely moved to this hosting company because we heard their support was excellent. And the rumors were right!
Thank you guys!

I have been with inmotion hosting off and on for 6 years. Over that time i have hosted a few sites with them and have many domain names with them as well and have found them to be reliable with smaller sites without a lot of traffic but have had some issues with larger sites with lots of traffic but was always able to over come any issues with the help of their tech support and most of the time it came down to settings for my site. I contacted tech support today and was met with a quick response time every time i sent a reply and a knowledgeable tech support agent that understood my issues and went above and beyond what most tech support agents do. It only took him a few minutes to address the issue i was having and finding a resolve to get things working right. The agent was good at explaining things in a way that was easy to understand and made sure i knew what he was talking about after fixing the issue and before letting me go. I was impressed with the support i received today as [read more...]
Recently, Inmotionhosting had set up automatic domain renewals without any consent or notification to their customers. They will not notify you of any changes made within their company but expect you to hand over your money. I've been with Inmotionhosting for a few years, and it use to be that they sent you email reminders every year for domain renewals. But all of a sudden, they made it an option where YOU have to set up or turn off reminders for automatic domain renewals in your account. This wasn't an option before as they gave out annual reminders, and I wasn't notified that this had become an option, so this way they placed the blame on you if you didn't want your domain renewed and expected it to expire. They believe they can make policy changes without customer knowledge to take your money and blame you for not giving them a 30 day notice of cancellation. Bad company all around.
Customer service representative (dannys@i..., ).
had to transfer domain from them and they would not contact me after several attempts to do so
they will not call you back or answer your emails
they take your money and don't provide a good service
With other hosting company, after register the domain, hosting, I can activate it within a minute. But with InMotion, i took me 1 day and I am not yet done. After register, I have to wait for at least 1 hour for they to do manually verification. So troublesome for me to send and "verification form" with include my identity card information. If you want a register & use domain/hosting in a fast way, inMotion is not recommended.
Randomly checking site for 2 years, many instances of no response, downtime. Very unreliable. Worst ISP I have ever used. Am looking to move ASAP!
inmotionhosting.com put information on many hidden folders
whit out my permision to many times. the tecnical support system is to slow that people is tno honest.
I tried calling in tonight for a couple of fairly basic questions, but was unable to get anyone on the line to help after calling twice and waiting on hold until I realized nobody was ever going to pick up... So I tried the online chat. Oh boy, what fun!
I am a very articulate and considerate person, and had two simple and fairly direct questions to ask in the chat session. Before I could fully explain my first question, I was abruptly disconnected. Hmm, that's strange. I didn't seem to hit any buttons to make this happen... Maybe I'm not being as direct as this tech geek dude wants me to be... or maybe the connection was simply lost (either way, it doesn;t say much for a web hosting company does it?:P). I guess I'll just try again and try to be as direct, polite and thankful as possible. That should work.
NOPE! When I tried the second time, I was actually able to get my first question answered, but I guess that's all that they figured that they owed me, because I was then [read more...]

If you are the account holder, please contact customer service. Our customer service center is available 24x7 via phone, chat, or email.
your service has been great. it is sometimes affected ( eg downloads, uploads ) by my isp ( verizon ) which i dont like. if you could be the isp and i could bypass verizon that would be great but hows that gonna happen when the wire to my house is verizon equip ?
price is great and recently you took over registration of my domain name for free, which saved me money ( from melbourne it ). up and down time is generally good but changes with traffic and time of day etc which is normal. i love your service and the price, the space i have for that price for ftp stuff and if i ever get into things as a real money making business on the web i would upgrade with you. i also recommend you to others. i also love that you dont outsource your cust support to people who just go through menus with english as 2nd language and waste time like that. thanks !

It's works ok for low visit traffic.
The most frightening thing for me is the VPS crashed a couple of days ago. We lost all of the mysql databases, images and web files. There no backup for that. We need rebuild our website from Zero beginnings.
That's very bad.
and InMotion hosting is the WORST host.
I have had my own account with them for 3 years or so.
You can't beat the customer support, whether it is by way of email, or the telephone. They are prompt, and always have done what it took to solve any problems.
I rarely have down time at all. I have tested other hosting services, and frankly they just didn't compare to IMH. I totally trust them to take care of me.
Go with IMH, you won't regret it!!
Webmasters should backup their own files but uploading can take a significant amount of time (days/weeks) if the site is large. If IMH fixed this problem, they would be perfect in my opinion.
I've been with InmotionHosting for two years. I call Technical Support from time to time and they are consistently excellent. Every support person has been polite and pleasant and knowledgeable.
InmotionHosting offers excellent features, uptime, and support for a very reasonable price and we couldn't be happier.
Everyone is skilled and knowledgeable about the technical aspects of website hosting. I have always been able to resolve any issues. As a result, I have a website that is always functioning the way it should - it says a lot to my clients and customers - a working website makes me and my organization look credible.
Their prices are little higher than any other hosting service provider but I believe that it worth it because of the customer service that they are providing with the plan.
I have exercised about ten different hosting service providers in the past ten years and In Motion Hosting is the only one that I choose to say with.
I can't say anything bad about them becouse there is nothing to say bad at all
in fact i transfered my 3 domains over to them THERE GREAT
I did use them, no customer support at all. High on price , low on customer support
I am very sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied with the Managed Internet Presence department. You are a valuable client to us, and have been for over a year now. After reviewing the notes of your account it appears that the first website that we built for you went smoothly and you seemed fully satisfied. Unfortunately we were unable to move forward with your second website because you have yet to approve or discuss the comp that we sent you. We would love the opportunity to resolve this issue and have attempted to contact you several times to discuss a resolution. Please contact us as soon as possible as we take our customer service and support very seriously.

Customer service representative (Darin Hardy - darinh@i..., ).
We apologize for the problem you had with our online chat. When we first started using the system there were some connectivity issues and we immediately took action to fix them. We implemented new procedures and tools for the online chat system to ensure that it was as effective as contacting our 24x7 support by phone or email.
We hope you will give us another try to earn your business.
Customer support representative (Darin Hardy - darinh@i..., ).
They maybe have two or three good people. Most are extremely ignorant and lack all necessary people skills. While I understand their feelings of frustration and the anger that follows, I can't excuse taking it out on the customer.
At the end of the day, it matter little how much a person pays for service if the experience is lousy. And it was. Take it from a computer professional and keep looking.
We’re sorry to hear that your experience hosting with us did not leave you satisfied. Our Director of Operations personally reviewed your account at the time of your issues to ensure our support staff did everything possible to resolve them efficiently. Unfortunately, some of your requests were outside the scope of what we can resolve as they involved 3rd party providers and not our own systems. We take our client's issues very seriously and are dedicated to providing the highest level of service and support possible.
Customer support representative (Darin Hardy - darinh@i..., ).
The prices, features and support is a few good examples.
My shared webhosting hasn't experienced a single problem and I've been with them 5 months. Even though the servers are in US, and I live in Europe (Sweden specifically) I still upload and download on very high speed.
I use their Pro Business Class webhosting package with two addons: A dedicated IP and Self-assigned SSL certificate.
If you want a fast and reliable webhosting, use Inmotion.
There customer service exists, but they ever fully solve a problem and in fact if they often wont take my chats so I have to use a psuedo name for them to address our issues.
There product and knowledge is poor and they don't seem to understand that for many users their website is their livelihood.. If you are serious about your business do not use these guys.
We apologize for the issues you have encountered. We have invested significant time and resources into our company to ensure our service is the best in the industry. We are not always perfect but we strive to go above and beyond for our customers. I know there have been several issues you encountered while hosting with us and am glad to know they are resolved now. If you have any additional problems please contact our Support Manager directly and he will ensure you are receiving the highest level of service and support possible. We appreciate earning your business over the past years and look forward to working with you in the future.
