InMotion has been around for some time (since 2001) – so they’ve seen a lot of online trends come and go. Over the period of time, their marketing strategy has changed, but they’ve always maintained their image as the “nerd’s choice”.
That shouldn’t put you off – their system is easy to use and they have plenty of training resources and great customer support.
They are one of the few big independent hosting companies around. Many other brands are owned by a few large corporations – for instance, Endurance International owns eHost, HostGator, and Bluehost (to name a few).
Operating as an independent company forces InMotion to compete in terms of service, performance, and pricing – and this is good news for customers!
