Nice Hosting

I host a blog site http://digitalbhat.com with GoDaddy and found it satisfactory. I recommend this host to all on merit basis and overall experience I had with the service provider.
I found In Motion to be very reliable and the support in my book was excellant

I have been using In Motion Hosting for many years and I have not ever had a problem either of my creation (normally the case) or otherwise that I did not get immediate help with. The support was willing to look into any are... More of problem I have had, and then help me to perform the proper procedure to get everything working properly again. I am very satisfied with their complete service Less

Tengo contratado un dominio en GoDaddy y no me permiten iniciar sesión si el navegador está impidiéndoles rastrearte.
Aunque el javascript esté activado y el bloqueador de anuncios desactivado, aparece el aviso: "Estás utiliz... More ando un navegador poco común."
No puedo realizar el pago, ni tampco gestionar la configuración DNS para incluir nuevo subdominio.
No lo recomiendo en absoluto, te obligan a dejarte rastrear.

bad support
Mustafa Youssif,

Actually we got one server from InMotion Hosting and we stayed down for 1 day without reasons and finally the system admins told us we have played in the DNS and its fully managed by them! and setup by them! and its a 3rd par... More ty support as long they spent 2 days to reach the system admin at all to check what's wrong with server..
hereby, im not recommending this company for bad experience and even the refund has an issue with them they didn't refund the payment until now since 4 days.. and email not revived for cancelation and refund and they are saying they have sent it 3 times to my Gmail email but maybe Gmail has a problem :)
Finally, its a bad services, servers, support, even the billing team not taking action at all! without proof or Billing history showing the refund on their panel how can we trust a service provider who caused a lot of issues to our business in down time without any reason!!!
and its fully managed Server!

Winner: InMotion Hosting

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

While InMotion Hosting and GoDaddy offer many of the same types of hosting solutions, they really aren’t in the same league. InMotion consistently out ranks GoDaddy in every measurable category by both the team of HostAdvice experts, and actual customers who have reviewed the companies. While GoDaddy is a very well-known company, they seem to have forgotten that they need to put the quality of their hosting above the quality of their marketing campaign. For all of these reasons, and many others, declaring InMotion the winner in this comparison is a very easy decision.
