Written by Voitek Klimczyk of Hartford, CT. Currently hosting on a VPS.
I’m a former IT guy who has been publishing websites since 2004. When my website was small, hosting didn’t matter that much. But once I started to grow my business, I started to notice more and more, that where you host your website really matters, because you don’t want customers to visit your site and all they get is an error or loading page.
InMotion Hosting is the most reliable web host that I have used since 2004 – and I’ve tried several of the popular ones out there. Most of them had horrible support, that almost always blamed outages on me and they were also slow to load my site.
InMotion Hosting was the first web host to not only help me troubleshoot problems, but sometimes even proactively take care of problems for me; like the time hackers used denial-of-service (DoS) attacks against of one of my sites. Another leg up InMotion Hosting has on the competition is the actual page speed of your website. Nothing compares to their Shared Hosting as far as reliability and speed goes from what I personally tried.
Since my business grew, I was seamlessly moved to their VPS solution, which is extremely reliable and fast. Seamless becomes a bigger deal, once your website grows to the point that you need it up all the time to maximize business profits. I’ve had other hosts put my site on the back burner and extremely slow servers, while I lost business and profits from people who didn’t want to wait 10 seconds for the page to load.
It’s the reliability, professional support, and page loading speed that has kept me a customer far past the introductory deal.
By the way, another thing that I really like is that when I call support, I get to speak with someone that actually understands what’s happening, instead of non IT people trying to help you by reading from a script. I tried top rated hosts and top advertised hosts out there, but in reality none of them came close to the up-time, speed, and expertise that I have grown accustomed to from InMotion Hosting. Trust me, that means a lot coming from someone who worked in IT for a long time.
