Anyone out there looking for a hosting service should consider InMotion Hosting. Even semi-literate (in tech) people can wor...展开
k on their own websites when they marry up with this service. The prices are reasonable (not the cheapest, but in hosting services, you get what you pay for), and their servers are fast. Even the non-dedicated servers. Also responsive is their 24/7 service on the phone, by chat, or email for technical, billing or general questions about your account. The folks answering my questions are always professional, personable and thorough. I am a satisfied customer and plan to be with InMotion for a while.
So I was once an ASO customer and when that began to fall apart I came over to A2, as they were recommended by a former ASO/A...展开
2 exec whom I know. I purchased a triannual plan sight unseen for my client hosting.
There's a LOT of stuff that could be better. For starters, the WHM/CPanel setup does not allow for me to connect to my GDrive to back up the /home folder as my old ASO did. Also, I cannot quickly access PHPMyAdmin from the WHM level to get into multiple databases at once (good for importing data between accounts if there's a need).
I have my own set of custom nameservers set up that I cannot use for new accounts created because something is not configured correctly and it takes a couple of trips to the support ticket system to get the domain to point to the host. It's a major PITA when you've got several sites to build and want to get the domains resolving for things that depend upon the domain name, such as a WP install. Yes, "a couple of trips" because the "guru" who initially helps me ends up being the "trainee" and I have to make at least two trips for it to resolve correctly.
Many times I'm in the support chat and see "You are No. 1 in the queue" and then I get bumped back to No.3, then 2, then 1, then 2 again, etc. Not sure if this is a bug or a feature or a ploy by marketing to make me feel like "shoulda bought the "priority service package"...
I kinda wish I'd done more research before I so blindly trusted the word...of someone I trusted!
Probably gonna be moving again soon and getting a refund on the term I've not used so far.
Server side backups, simple right? Not with Inmotion
I´ve contacted them four times, the first tier is completely useless, th...展开
ey´ll keep you waiting around one hour just to start the chat with your, then they´ll waste another hour of your time until someone realises they don´t know how to handle the failure and they´ll tell you that they´ve done something, if that doesn´t work call in a few days time
When you´ve done that a couple of times, of course you don´t buy it anymore and you want to talk to someone also, someone that knows something or can provide a solution, that´ll cost you another hour of waiting at least, once I could talk to another operator, he couldn´t do anything but he knew what he was talking about. He escalated to the team that really knows and they will send me an email, when the issue was fixed.
I received the email, customer support also contacted me apologising and all that but the issue hasn´t been resolved even though the technical team said all was working fine.
So I contacted them again, of course the first two hours wasted again (one waiting, one with the no clue guy) and I got the usual solution, call another day,
I said I am not leaving until get a solution, supervisor, another operator... something but I´m tired of wasting my time. They hang up on me, just like that
I am changing hosts
