InMotion Hosting is certainly a name that’s synonymous with excellent web hosting. Since their inception back in 2001, they have been growing steadily not only in terms of customer base but also services being offered.
Over the years, they have won numerous awards in the industry for providing exceptional hosting services. Though they are very popular as an e-commerce host, they do provide great individual hosting too. If you transferring from another web host, you are assured of Zero Downtime as you will have immediate access to your account and a temporary URL. You can upload your website and confirm it’s working properly first before you redirect your domain name.
InMotion Hosting is a comprehensive web host. What this means is that their services are not limited to just shared hosting but also VPS, Dedicated Servers and even custom web design! Hence, should your website outgrows shared hosting, you won’t need to shop around for another host. You can just upgrade within InMotion Hosting and be spared of website transfer headaches.
With hosting price starting at
$6.95 $5.56 per month, it is a web host worth considering. If you are wondering if things can get any better, well, they offer the following for free:
- $100 Google AdWords advertising credits
- $75 Yahoo! + Bing credits
- $75 in free clicks for Amazon Product Ads
On top of the above free advertising credits, one other feature which I really like is that they are using cPanel as their default control panel.
cPanel as a Unix based web hosting control panel that provides a graphical interface and automation tools designed to simplify the process of hosting a website. In short, it is a dynamic and user-friendly server management tool.
There are many reasons why cPanel is the preferred control panel for most hosting providers. And you will find that the same reasons are applicable to you, the users too. Take for example, cPanel’s following features:
cPanel is very intuitive and web beginners find it easy to navigate around. It also has tons of features that even the experienced webmasters are happy with it. All these great features will definitely result in fewer technical queries from users on how to use the control panel. Thus leaving the technical support team more time to attend to other technical issues.
1-click Installers Included
The cPanel integrates well with majority of 1-click installers such as SimpleScripts, QuickInstall and Softaculous. These installers are popular because they simplify the process of installing popular applications (e.g. shopping carts, forums, blogging software, and survey scripts) to just a few clicks of your mouse. Just imagine, applications like WordPress, OpenCart, Magento and PrestaShop can be installed on a website in an instant! Plus the hosting provider has the flexibility to determine which 1-click installer they prefer!
Now isn’t this an added value to subscribing from a hosting provider who provides cPanel?
Talk about virus attacks, hacks and spams and you will find both hosting providers and users cringe at the thought of their existence. Therefore, applications developers have to update their applications constantly. The good news is that, cPanel is known for its frequent updates. While this doesn’t 100% stops the attacks but it sure does reduce the number of them and help keep them at bay. And keep us users safe too.
