If your business or website simply outgrows what the shared plans can provide and you find yourself in need of faster hosting and more space, InMotion also offers VPS and Dedicated Hosting starting at just $29.99 a month. VPS and Dedicated Hosting gives you the benefit of more control over the server where your website lives and allows you to run more advanced scripts to provide a truly unique experience to each visitor to your site. However, these plans are far from the bargain basement prices of their shared hosting plans but give you much more power and control than you could ever have with shared hosting.

Support

During the setup process, you are required to talk to a customer service representative. While this will be off putting to some users who know what they want and how to do it, others will find it helpful. Overall, it is a good experience and nice to actually talk to the company with which you are doing business before you even get started.

If you have a problem, you can chat on the web with a representative or choose to email support. In some cases, users have reported issues with the live chat with representatives being unable to help but issues seem to always be resolved by emailing technical support directly. However, this can take time and if your website is down, could mean your web presence is offline for a considerable amount of time while you wait for the problem to be resolved. Still, many customers that use the service have found everyone at the company friendly and believe they always go out of their way to help even if live chat is unable to solve the problem, they can help you get to someone who can.

Security

InMotion offers different security options designed to protect both you and your site from harm regardless of what plan you chose when setting up your account. For example, it offers remote back services for all accounts that under 10GB in size and there are free security scans for your site running WordPress. More advanced security features can also be added with a small additional expense and you can even purchase your own SSL certificates for around $100 each year.
