awesome great best website for hosting i have ever got. must try..
We have been a Hostgator fan for many years now and still contented and satisfied of their services up to this day!
In all those years, we haven’t encountered any problems, that’s why we’re stickin’!
I’m thinking of switching to greengeeks in May. I operate my website via joomla so I decided to contact customer support upon reading Peter’s comment about threats from greengeeks to remove joomla. Customer supports said that it was simply not true - they support joomla all right! Peter, how would you explain that?
I have worked with iPage and various other big name web hosting and multi-service providers. They are BY FAR the best. I am not a programmer, I’m a small business CEO who needed a well-designed website, dependable hosting and customer service, and ecommerce. I have been pleased and satisfied every single time I needed help or wanted to add or change my service or my sites. Their staff are professional but friendly, and I never have to wait too long to speak with a human being. I’m happy and I no longer worry about whether I chose the right company – after working with several, some more expensive, some less – iPage is my choice.
I have several websites, do I need a hosting package for each website or can I have just one hosting package that will host all of my websites?
I have been with Lunar pages for several years. They used to have outstanding service. Not any more! Run a popular blog site or forums? Don’t bother with Lunar. If you go over 2% of cpu usage (due to a lot of hits to your site) and they start shutting you down. first by an occasional resource limit exceeded message. Followed by them CHOWNing your index.php taking your site down. Then after 3 days of emailing them about the issue they grant access to the file again and tell you to start banning IP addresses of those that visit the most? How is a person supposed to build a successful blog or forums if they have the servers so over crowded that 500 unique page hits a day causes them to panic? I’m fed up with lunar pages and will be moving to a new host in the very near future.
Have been a customer on Hostgator for 2 years now and my experience with them have been really terrific!!
My site got hacked several days ago, lose everything, but thanks to their customer support, they restore almost all of my data and my site is up and running in 24 hours after i asking for assistance.
It got really pricey after the initial discount gone though, but it is a great hosting solution for anyone… :D
Thank you, very informative.
I used to have WebHostingHub services. Those are great! Perfect support 24/7 through email!
Great service and help as usual! My rep was patient and stayed with me on the line until my issue was fully resolved. In Motion has the best customer service!
InMotion detected an unwarranted access and took protective measures. They notified me and helped me get the site back up ASAP. I did suffer some downtime but that is an acceptable price to pay to avoid an unknown compromise to the site. I’m glad for the kind and persistent help to get things back to normal in a single call.
I’ve used this company for over a year without any outages, so I was surprised when I couldn’t access my site one day. The support chat system was very convenient, and the problem was resolved in only a couple of minutes. Very pleased with the service and support.
I haven’t had many problems at all with InMotion hosting except for ones I usually created myself. That being said, Customer support has always been there ready to help and fixed any problems I have encountered in an expediant manner.
Only been with inMotion for a year, but not a single problem. My previous host would have been down a dozen times during that period. Good work! Keep improving.
Stay away from Host Gator. Their automatic email system sucks. It never gets anything correct. Their support is terrible. I was on the phone or chatting on-line for hours with these people. Finally had to cancel the account. Just my opinion, but I thought they were really bad and difficult to work with.
For the fifth or sixth time, Inmotion has imposed what is for us a totally unnecessary emergency upgrade to the infernally buggy cpanel system which we have never used anyway, and in the process replaced our dedicated apache build by the cpanel one which, unsurprisingly, has nothing to show the world but its empty home directory.
In the process, Inmotion knocked our two hosted web sites offline. When we sought help, we were greeted, as always, with the same totally irrelevant and crassly ignorant garbage about DNS that they feed us every time.
I can’t see any reason to stay with InMotion. Once we finally get through the process of reaching a Tier-3 administrator, they’ll just tell us it won’t happen again, but no doubt it will.
This carbon copy compound repeat offence proves that Inmotion can’t be entrusted with the site in the longer term.
Needed to get whois protection to my site. Hit the “Live Chat” button, wait was short (usually no wait at all but this time I used live chat during peak hours) and help was straight to the point and everything was taken care of very quickly. Service was great compared with customer service on other hosts I have used throughout the years.
Been using InMotion Hosting for over a year now to manage two domains, never had a problem. The amount of control over my site is immense and the options (as many as they are) are laid out in the best way I have ever seen any host done. It really lets you dive deep into customization without pulling you hair out over trying to find how to enable a certain protocol or option you want.
Best host I have used.
have only good words about the crew. most helpful and you can contact them in the middle of the night and still get fast and right answers. would recommend the company. cheap, fast and very, very good customer service.
respect from Croatia
I have just bought a site and have used the help line twice.
First because I ordered the site in the middle of the night and they wait to certify your purchase until business hours unless you call in to activate it immediately. I called in, and was helped immediately. Great experience.
Next I had a login/password question for some of the software I installed…it was late so I opted for the chat function. “David” helped me quickly and was very polite. So far I’ve been very pleased with the service provided by this host.
This is my first time using a web hosting site, but I did my research before hand and decided to go with In Motion. It was a great idea because I have been so successful with them. So far they have been extremely helpful with any question I have, large or small. They are patient with me as I navagate through things and have helpful resources for me to use after the phone convorsation is over. I am very glad that I made the choice to use In Motion Hosting!
I really can’t say enough good things about Hostgator. They do it the way it should be done. Regardless of time zone, I can always get the answers I need when I need them. Have not experienced ANY downtime on any of the sites I support. Hostgator is currently hosting about a dozen websites for me. I’d have to say (from my previous experience with other hosting companies) that they are one of the best (if not THE best) hosting sites out there. Their fees are very reasonable.
I too hosted with LunarPages for more than 10 years. I don’t know what’s changed for them but they are simply not the company that they were. Customer support is horrendous, technical support is extremely slow (more than 4 days to resolve email/domain issues on their end which then reoccurred a month later). I am moving on to another host this weekend.
I have been with Globat for almost 4 years, but am now finally moving to a different provider. Generally hosting is good, but paying for adding a sub-domain is not acceptable. This was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
I used ipage and think there services and costs are pretty good. There are many people out there now searching for wordpress themes and not may hosting providers support it. ipage supports it without any problems.
I have to agree. My experience with FatCow is 100% positive.
Took 2 months to get a domain transfer done! I had to call back for literally 2 weeks to make sure they stayed on top of it! Then they said I had to pay $14.99 for the transfer (their page says free transfers).
Of course another technical issue that came up took another week to get straightened out, and again it took daily phone calls for a week..UGGGGGH
Excellent review! I’ve been through 7 different hosts personally but the one I’m with now is HostGator and I’ve been with them for years now. Unless HostGator does something silly, I’m not going anywhere that’s for sure.
Today, David was very helpful with my problem that really was not an InMotion issue but rather a local email server software issue. I did not know that when I called. David was very helpful in checking on the InMotion side to confirm that the problem could not be solved on the InMotion side & then told me what to do. Problem solved in record time.
Poor reliability lately. Dunno why. All I get from tech support is stock stuff – “maintenance, server down, don’t know when it will be back up.” Second long outage in less than a week. I’m headed for the door if up time does not improve.
I have one site on HostGator. Technically, they are superior, but one thing that confuses me is the praises for their response time. Every time I have had to contact them for support, I have had to wait 15 minutes for a live chat and about the same for a rep on the phone. JustHost has proven to me to be much more responsive. Every time I complain to the rep at HostGator they have given me the stock line that they are constantly working to improve their customer support.
Thanks a lot for sharing this :)
arrogant tech support suggested that I host my images elsewhere instead stopping the process that was causing a slowdown on mysites. Go elsewhere, I will be looking now.
Don’t you have anything lower than poor? iPage has been charging me $100 a month for 9 months to develop a website on a domain that I had asked to be removed as a domain name from my account 9 moths ago. They mistook that as a request to “please charge me another $100/month to do absolutely nothing to build a website on a domain I didn’t even think I owned anymore. They admit they have done zero work, that they had the domain listed as cancelled, yet from that somehow assume that I would like a website developed for this. I offered to compromise and allow that it would be possible that I could use another site, if they were willing to apply the funds to a different domain. The agent I spoke to kept putting me on hold “so she could speak with her supervisor” when I asked for his name I was told. “he doesn’t have one". Well credit card company will claw back as mnuch as possible.
After my website has been down numerous times, I’m moving my site to another hosting company! It’s ridiculous that a hosting company that is ranked in the top 10 will have a website down for days and keep sending excuses as to why it has to “propagate” before it can be live again. Nonsense! This has gone on since the day I signed on with them.
i have a question about hosting. HTML sites can be hosted on virtually ANY web server?
Outdated PHP and MySQL, no control panel, limited customer service, not allowed to use .htaccess. This is the type of service for a customer who doesn’t know any better.
Just Host was my first-ever web host for my online business.
I read a few reviews about some other companies and thought to myself “this going to be a catastrophe” since I didn’t have as much experience then as I do now.
Anyway, Just Host has been absolutely great as a host…all support e-mails are answered quickly and they help whenever needed.
Everything is unlimited, which is awesome and you can host as many accounts as you want from your admin (I currently have 3 domains on my account).
Bottom line is this-if you want trouble-free hosting with unlimited everything then Just Host is where you need to sign up at.
I am looking to move my domain hosting as well as website maintenance to a new location, and have been shopping for a new service provider. I have been trying to wrap my head aroun InMotion’s multiple pricing menues, and it gives me a headache every time. Their small business “power” and “pro” packages are a come on with very low monthly pricing, then they hit you with additinal expenses, that ramp monthly costs from the advertized $6.95 to over $100 rather quickly. I still like their technology, but I find their pricing is like going to a used car lot!
they are one of the best hosting company, for basic hosting they are no. 1
I’ve been with this host for over a year now and while the service is good, look out for the gouge. Mine just started what they dont tell you is that the “Plan Price” is a promo and they eventually will bump you up (Slowly so you dont notice it too much) to over $10.00 a month regarless of how often you renew. they let me go through 3 billing cycles at the promo rate and just when you start to trust them they bumped me up to 7.99 and then 8.99 with no warning whats so ever. if you can afford that then there all yours. BUT BE WARNED!!!!
I been trying to call Vista Pages and the # I have does not work. I wanted to changed the email address on my website because someone hacked into my email, last time I call them I was told by them that they can’t help me with that. No I’m trying to talk to them about another problem I have and there # does not work…..
Like any big company, you as a customer don’t mean anything to them. We were paying for dedicated server for 3 years and when someone made a complaint to the the brand distributor running on one of our sites, their policy is simple, they suspend your entire server and dont even e-mail you about it. After you find out that all your site are down because of one site that had some counterfeit items listed on it, you contact them and they tell you write to firstname.lastname@example.org and that they can do nothing to help you.
All the hosts you have listed are good. Just host edges it for me.
I am a self styled Website Developer that started with such dinosaurs as Trelix-Web Builder, Angelfire templates and writing content using h3 tags and img tags and href inks tags to get what I believed was my true product (my writings and my pictures) out to the world:
Now I am beginning to catch on to the new tools and open source coding. Blue Host is an amazing and powerful web hosting environment, which I have not yet mastered.
I imagine this site I-Page hosting perhaps alongside with site cloud, as possible new environments to bring media to. Its a great review and a very simple response form.
Thanks for the informstion.

PS: I am seeking to create meaningful business relationships with others who have similar goals on the world-wide web.
i have been working with bluehost for 3 years and they works great. i recommended all, thanks bluehost
My experience with Yahoo! has been as follows:
- Easy to use.
- Tech support does NOT answer anything or solve problems.
- Several e-mail accounts did not work on several of our mobile devices.
- Yahoo!’s registry was hacked and one week later our site had malware on it. I was informed by Google, NOT Yahoo!.
My conclusion: this used to be a decent service, but no longer. Good riddens.
Yes, your information will really help to user how to select processors for dedicated server, Processors that are catered to Dedicated servers like Intel Xeon and the AMD Opteron are 64-bit high-performance chips that run well in Dedicated servers. A bit pricey though, but when it comes to quality and performance. You will have the best of it especially if you want your Dedicated Server to be scalable.
iPage hosting service does not support InnoDB engines on SQL databases. This brands poorly shares server resources with peers and business. Customer service is very limited, while updating or refreshing content is sluggish. Popular CMS support is poor. PHP and general server performance is mediocre.
I just recently signed up with Inmotion and am glad I did. Tech support is knowledgeable, positive, and interacts with “go the extra mile” responses. Thanks for being who you say you are!
They are really are amazing for us especially their C Support, we don’t have to wait for long, chat has less than 2 minutes queue mostly.
we use many hosting provider with many sites and many functionality and only 2 we consider very great. Inmotion is one of it.
They provide very fast response and announce if it’s going to go down.
In VPS, they are very reliable right, we almost can say we have almost 100% up time even when we rely heavily on MySql since we are is Motor Dealers that rely much on our sites for information and running fully on working hour every day, almost no holiday.
one things is less great about them is that on business packet we can’t use trigger for MySQL. Else than that, this is almost perfect for us. more than 4 years of our time with inmotion is quite a great experience.
