Hello Guys, Welcome to Hosting Lovers!

If you are planning to buy InMotion shared hosting, and you want to know the performance of InMotion shared hosting, then you are in the right place. In this blog post, We will test the speed and performance of InMotion shared hosting with 10+ different and extensive tests.

Let’s Get Started!

InMotion shared Hosting

InMotion Hosting is a privately held technology company providing web hosting, cloud-based solutions and managed services to businesses and entrepreneurs across the globe. In the shared hosting segment, InMotion is doing quite well.

Plans & Pricing

InMotion Shared Hosting Speed and Performance Test Hosting Lover InMotion Plans and Pricing

InMotion offers four variuos plans in shared hosting. 1) Core, 2) Launch, 3) Power and 4) Pro. All the plans (except the Core plan) comes with Free Domain and SSL, and Unlimited NVMe SSD Storage. You can host unlimited websites in these plans. I think the Power plan is the best plan among all of the plans.

Testing Environment

To test InMotion shared hosting speed and performance, I bought a Power plan. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will already know that I create the same testing website when I perform speed tests. After buying the Power plan, I installed WordPress and connected it with my domain which I bought from NameCheap.

I do not want to run tests on a blank website, so I installed Blocksy Theme and one of its demo websites called ‘Tasty.’ I have to install four additional extra plugins with the demo website: Blocksy Companion, WP Forms Lite, Stackable, Recipe Card Blocks by WPZOOM.

Hosting: InMotion Shared Hosting
Plan: Power
Server Location: USA
WordPress Version: 5.8
Themes: Blocksy (Active), Twenty twenty One
Plugins: Blocksy Companion, WP Forms Lite, Stackable, Recipe Card Blocks by WPZOOM

After setting this testing environment, I did not perform any extra optimizations like caching, Image compressing, modification, or any other kind of speed improvement. It would be best if you always did these optimizations to improve your website, but I wanted to know the actual performance of InMotion shared hosting without any optimizations.

Quick Disclaimer:
I want to inform you guys that all the results are honest and authentic in this blog post. Also, this blog post is not sponsored by InMotion hosting or any other hosting. Also keep in mind that these tests are done without any optimizations. You can optimize your website and get much good speed then these results.

To do these kinds of tests, I have to spend a lot of money from my pocket, So I would like to request that if you want to buy InMotion shared Hosting or any other hosting, please use our affiliate links. You will get an extra discount, and this website will earn a small amount of commission from it. So, we can do more feature speed tests, reviews, and comparisons without any sponsors.

Now, without wasting your precious time, let’s start testing.
