Real Web Hosting Stats

I'm disgusted with fake hosting "reviews." Here are the results of real performance tests I run regularly on top shared hosts.

Is InMotion Hosting helpful? InMotion Hosting Support Response Stats

InMotion Hosting is known for their free domains, free data backup, green data centers, and a 90 day money back guarantee. They have been operating since 2001, and host over 500K sites. Their data centers are located in Los Angeles, CA and Ashburn, VA (near Washington D.C.)

I have purchased a hosting plan on InMotion Hosting and set up a typical web site. I use that example website to run these tests. Learn more about how I test.

Here's the plan information I chose:

Plan NameBusiness Launch
Cost$6.99/month
Disk SpaceUnlimited
BandwidthUnlimited
Uptime Guarantee99.9%
Money-Back Guarantee90 days
NotesThey had to call me to verify before setting up my account. They normally only do this during business hours, but you can call them if it's at night. After verification my site was ready within 30 minutes.

Support Response Test

This test measures how quickly the host's support team responds to your request. Lower is better.

I personally contact each host's support department with a new question/concern and measure how long it takes for them to get back to me.

This test is important for every host - it's imperative your web host is able to quickly address your concerns in a timely manner, even if you're an expert webmaster. Who wants to deal with a host that has poor customer service? Tech is hard, and tech support is critical!

InMotion Hosting Support Response Test Results

InMotion Hosting (full benchmark) performs impressively in the Support Response test, with an average result of 0.9 hours. Its best run was 0.2 h, but has been as bad as 2.3 h. InMotion Hosting's most recent result on Mar 2016 was 0.2 hours. Typically InMotion's tech support will get back to you within 3 hours, regardless of the time of day. That's key when you need assistance with your site.

Let's see if InMotion Hosting is consistent in its support response stats:
