Does InMotion Hosting support the Windows or Linux operating system?

InMotion hosting has only Linux OS hosting. You can install Windows if you have your own Windows server license. You also would have no support on this because they are a Linux host with no knowledge of Windows server.

How are website transfers handled with InMotion Hosting and is there a fee for transfers?

InMotion hosting does have a website migration service. Their staff will migrate all your files for you. You simply login to your account and click on a “website transfer request”. You will fill out information about your old host.

It does take 1-4 days for your website to be migrated over. However, if you want to speed up the process you can pay a priority transfer fee. This will put your website migration at the top of the queue.

After the migration is complete you will then need to sign into your domain registrar and change your DNS settings to point them to InMoton Hosting’s servers.

    I started using InMotion Hosting back in 2008 when I started my business.

    For several years prior to using InMotion I used GoDaddy. I was unhappy with their service and found InMotion after researching several different hosts for weeks.

    From the second that I signed up with them, I realized that I had made a great decision. They called me within 20-30 minutes which was a welcome call to show me what the next steps would be to complete transferring my WordPress website over to them.

    I logged into their AMP dashboard and put in my FTP login information. Within 1 business day, everything was transferred over. I then logged into Namecheap (where I buy all my domain names). I changed my DNS and within 24 hours everything was propagated over.

    I have chatted with InMotion Hosting several times via live chat. Within seconds you are connected with an agent. They have explained various things like inodes, website hacks, WordPress settings, etc. to me over the years. Customer support is always so helpful.

    I have had shared, VPS, and even dedicated servers with InMotion Hosting. I’ve migrated from shared to VPS for myself and also my clients. InMotion does all the legwork and migrated all my files to the server.

    Uptime is very good. I can’t recall a single instance where my website was down for more than 5 minutes in 10+ years.

    Websites do load quickly with InMotion Hosting. I used to do SEO for clients and one of the first things I would do is move their website over to InMotion Hosting. The response time to their website would improve, which helped them rank higher on Google.

    I like how you can pick where you want your server to be located. You can either pick the West Coast or the East Coast. If you’re working with local businesses on either coast it will drastically help their SEO.

    I have referred 100’s of people to InMotion Hosting over the years. Good, reliable, and easy to work with web hosting company.

    I’ve been hosting with InMotion Hosting since 2009 and I have been very happy!

    The uptime is top notch. Servers are lighting fast. Customer support is always helpful and has helped me troubleshoot little minor problems that have occurred in the past.

    Overall, I have been very happy with InMotion Hosting and use them for several of my clients websites.

    I have used InMotion Hosting for several years now. I am getting sick and tired of them.

    To be completely honest with you and say that InMotion Hosting has gotten a lot slower than they were in the past. Meaning, websites used to load quickly. But, for the last 6 months, I have noticed that the response times are slow. They are over 1,500 ms.

    They have requested that I move to a dedicated server. But, my website doesn’t get a lot of monthly traffic, to begin with.

    Don’t get me wrong they used to be an awesome web hosting company. But, somewhere along the road, they started cutting corners and their service has gone downhill.

    Avoid InMotion Hosting!
