Liquid Web vs. InMotion

Posted on | Updated:

Considering InMotion for Your Web Hosting?

Considering InMotion? Check out Liquid Web!Choosing the right server for your current and future web hosting needs is rarely as simple as comparing prices on a website. Making the right choice means taking a wealth of factors into consideration: processor type and speed, drive type and configuration, and performance benchmarks to name a few. But did you know that your choice in hosting companies is equally critical?

Before you buy, you deserve to know as much about a web hosting company’s network reliability, data center security, and reputation for service and support as the specs on their servers. Perhaps unsurprisingly, companies rarely share that information with the same level of enthusiasm or sense of urgency as their current “limited-time promotional offer”. Unless, of course, the company you’re considering is Liquid Web.

We’ve built our business on providing the highest-performing servers, most reliable and secure infrastructure, and comprehensive Support backed by The Most Helpful Humans in Hosting™. Our data centers are wholly owned — no one else ever has access to your servers — and we build them from the ground up for performance, security, and redundancy. When your reputation has helped make your name synonymous with performance, reliability, support, and above-and-beyond customer service, why wouldn’t you seize every opportunity to spread the word?

Customer Quote

Wow! What a refreshing surprise in a world filled with mediocrity and poor customer service. I recently changed to Liquid Web … for hosting after nightmares with almost every other hosting company you can imagine. Kudos to Liquid Web and especially Alexander Houston who just expertly answered my questions and made essential changes to my account in a matter minutes rather than days in a simple knowledgeable LiveChat session.”
