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 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.
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
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.
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.
The first test we will do is the KeyCDN Test. With the KeyCDN test, we can measure website total load time and TTFB from 10+ worldwide locations.
|Server Location||Test 1||Test 2||Test 3|
|Frankfurt||362 ms||372 ms||387 ms|
|Amsterdam||344 ms||342 ms||343 ms|
|London||356 ms||314 ms||315 ms|
|New York||43 ms||46 ms||44 ms|
|Dallas||139 ms||143 ms||136 ms|
|San Francisco||306 ms||305 ms||304 ms|
|Singapore||987 ms||908 ms||890 ms|
|Sydney||1.08 s||1.06 s||1.05 s|
|Tokyo||683 ms||651 ms||648 ms|
|Bangalore||835 ms||858 ms||839 ms|
|Global Average||513 ms||499 ms||495 ms|
|Server Location||Load Time|
|New York||836 ms|
|San Francisco||1.1 s|
|Global Average||2.07 s|
Google PageSpeed Test
Google PageSpeed test is the essential test. Google PageSpeed tool is the official tool of Google for measuring website speed and performance. Google PageSpeed test can be different from test to test. Therefore I took three different results from three different days.
|Metrics||Test 1||Test 2||Test 3|
|First Contentful Paint||3.0 s||2.9 s||2.9 s|
|Largest Contentful Paint||3.0 s||2.9 s||2.9 s|
|Speed Index||7.3 s||7.1 s||7.3 s|
|Time to Interactive||7.4 s||7.3 s||7.4 s|
|Metrics||Test 1||Test 2||Test 3|
|First Contentful Paint||0.9 s||0.9 s||0.9 s|
|Time to Interactive||0.9 s||2.2 s||2.2 s|
|Largest Contentful Paint||1.1 s||1.4 s||1.4 s|
|Speed Index||2.3 s||2.2 s||2.2 s|
In the Pingdom test, we can measure website fully loaded time from 7 worldwide locations.
|Server Location||Load Time|
|Tokyo – Japan||2.34 s|
|Frankfurt – Germany||1.36 s|
|London – UK||1.24 s|
|Washington D.C. – USA||438 ms|
|San Francisco – USA||929 ms|
|Sydney – Australia||3.69 s|
|São Paulo – Brazil||1.91 s|
|Global Average||1.70 s|
GTMetrix test is based on the Google PageSpeed test. But with the GTMetrix test, we can get results from 7 worldwide locations. Also, with the results, we can get website performance score, TTFB, and fully loaded time.
|Server Location||Performance||TTFB||Fully Loaded Time|
|Vancouver, Canada||98%||342 ms||1.1 s|
|Hong Kong, China||73%||1.2 s||3.0 s|
|London, UK||88%||429 s||3.0 s|
|Mumbai, India||77%||946 ms||3.0 s|
|San Antonio, TX, USA||97%||193 ms||1.2 s|
|Sydney, Australia||76%||1.0 s||3.5 s|
|São Paulo, Brazil||91%||614 ms||1.6 s|
|Global Average||85%||674 ms||2.3 s|
Fast or Slow Test
Fast or slow is the most extreme test from all of the tests. In the Fast or Slow test, we get test results from 18 different worldwide locations.
|First Contentful Paint||88|
|Largest Contentful Paint||90|
|Time to Interactive||98|
|Min First Byte||35.87ms|
|Max First Byte||1.06s|
|Largest Contentful Paint||1.45s|
With the Load test, we can know how much load any particular website or hosting can handle.
|Response Times||100 Visits/Minute||250 Visits/Minute|
|Average||6 ms||7 ms|
|Minimum||4 ms||5 ms|
|Maximum||83 ms||116 ms|
WP Performance Test
The WP Performance test is based on two WordPress plugins, 1) WPPerformanceTester and 2) WordPress Hosting Benchmark tool.
WPPerformanceTester performs the following tests and allows us to see how any hosting server’s performance stacks up against industry benchmark. WordPress Hosting Benchmark tool test the server CPU, memory bandwidth, disk speed, and network download speed. After finishing the test, it provides a server score as a result.
(lower is better)
|Queries Per Second|
(higher is better)
|Total Time||8.734 s|
Uptime is one of the most important things in any hosting. Therefore, I measured the uptime of InMotion shared hosting for every one minute.
