So, I am going to start my review of hosting companies with InMotion. I found them about a year ago after wrestling with another hosting company where my FTP kept getting hacked. When I started investigating Inmotion, I thought they looked good and they seemed to have a good reputation on the web. But, I was thrilled when they actually returned my presale phone calls. They had a real person, somewhere in the USA, call me and spend time answering my concerns about protecting my sites from hacks.
I signed up with them and gave them a 1 year commitment. I am glad that I did. They assisted me in moving all my websites to their server. The one big issue that I ran into was that I carried over a nasty little trojan that had been planted while on my previous host. So, for the first 3 weeks, my sites would be quarantined. This was a huge protection mechanism by Inmotion. It was a little bit of a pain in the ass because I had to find the trojan. I lent up downloading all of my sites to my Mac via FTP. Once on the Mac, I ran a free virus/malware scan called bitdefender to locate the problem files. Once I knew where they were, I went back on my hosted files with FTP and removed the files. Took a while but it was not tough to do.
Back to the quality of Inmotion. I have to say ‘excellent’. Servers run fast, very reliable, and easy to use. They have Cpanel for controlling and setting up sites. They also have a installer script for adding WordPress blogs (or other CMS systems). As someone that hosts over 60 blogs for myself and clients, I really appreciate Inmotion. They get my highest marks for top hosting for WordPress Blogs in 2016.
