    Finish the Setup Wizard

  1. I am your new reseller and I try to contact by Skype no support and respond at all. My reseller account is

    1. I’m sorry to see that you are experiencing difficulty reaching out to Live Support via Skype. I am unaware of any issues within our control that would be affecting your ability to contact us from that application. Please note that we are available via many methods. Check out our guide on How to Contact Live Technical Support for further assistance.

  2. Same here, Skype doesn’t do anything with the buttons and indeed no phone numbers provided or easy to find anywhere on your website, if chat support takes a long time usually, figuring out how skype works with inmotion is proving to be even more inefficient. Any chance you have simple Phone support??

  3. Hi there – same problem as Laura Claycomb above. I cannot login into my account for some reason (so I can’t use the chat service), I’ve got issues with not being able to connect to my ftp accounts to upload a new cpanel, and I try the skype number and simply get “this person is unable to take your call”. I’m with Laura on this. Godaddy has some real issues and I need a reliable hosting company but this service hasn’t been great so far. I’ve got work outstanding with Managed HOsting team also, and it’s been two days now and I’ve not even had a proper response. If you guys are too busy, employ more people!

    1. Nicola, I’m sorry to hear that you’re having trouble contacting us. As Tim stated we are here 24/7, but at times we do have a lot of customer requests to deal with at one time. When you tried to Skype our number, did you use the local number( 757-416-6575 )?

  4. Not very helpful if there is no one at the number (support!) to help….  If there is a glut of calls, perhaps telling clients the wait time would be better.  I’m calling from half-way around the world, so I do not think you want to “call me back.”  And I don’t want to leave a message – I want to talk to someone about a problem I’m trying to resolve….  Really not good service!   So far, I am not very impressed with support at inmotion.  Godaddy has been MUCH better.  I’m regretting moving all my sites over here…  

    1. I’m sorry to hear that. Support operates 24/7/365 and we typically don’t ask to call customers back. What number are you dialing for Support? I’d like to help you. Have you tried using the live chat support?
