Comparing Hosting with Liquid Web vs InMotion?Comparing LiquidWeb vs InMotion for hosting

All too many hosting providers offer low prices in an effort to attract customers who don’t know exactly what they need. And then once that customer is through the door and has signed up, add-on fees and a la carte services come to light, stacking up and negating those earlier cost savings entirely. InMotion Hosting provides excellent infrastructure for sure, but the original appealing price is almost never the final bill. While price is always a consideration when making infrastructure investments, it can be difficult to compare one provider to another since details can vary so widely between one host and another. The entire exercise can be confusing to even the savviest technologist.

So what’s the solution when you don’t want to pay too much, but also don’t want to miss out on capabilities and functionality that you need? How do you even know what those capabilities and functions even are in the first place?

At Liquid Web, we remove the confusion by always offering full management of your infrastructure. From hardware to software, your infrastructure is under the watchful care of the Most Helpful Humans in Hosting. Rather than nickel and dime customers around the world for things like server administration and optimization, we offer complete management and monitoring so your team can focus on other parts of your business.

When considering a hosting provider like InMotion, it is critical that you know what you’re getting with your purchase…and what you aren’t getting but probably need. Choosing InMotion for your infrastructure means choosing to pay additional fees for server management and performance monitoring. It means performing your own migration and potentially being left out in the cold when things start to go wrong.

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.”
