NB: Aside from business tariffs, InMotion hosting also offers personal tariffs which you can see and compare on their website in the Personal/Cheap Hosting section. We will not stop here since there are much limited options and the price is not low respectively.
To those interested in dedicated servers or VPS hostings, we recommend to visit the official website on http://www.inmotionhosting.com and get all information directly from the origin. The website has a very detailed comparison and description of every tariff and their options. The website navigation is simple and intuitive even for those people who do not know English. We would only like to mention that each kind of service provided by InMotion Hosting is ultimately functional and is of the highest quality of business level.
The hosting registration is in English. Just fill in the required fields with your data, choose your bundle (for a month, a year, etc.), enter your credit card number, check the total sum to pay, and tick the “Terms and conditions” box and press the Purchase Account button. You will get the information with your login, password and all instructions via e-mail if you make the registration correctly. Probably the provider will want to know that your credit card is yours and not stolen from someone. In that case you will have to scan the card data and send to the platform administration.
