In this round of testing (October 2017) we are very pleased to see a marked improvement for InMotion over the results we recorded in previous testing. The chart above shows the average virtual user load time as the number of concurrent virtual users (VU) increases. The critical line is the blue line showing average user load time which increases significantly when the number of concurrent users gets to around around 70. This is however a noted improvement over past performance. The chart does however also show some failed requests as the number of total requests per second increases throughout the 10 minute test and we have to mark InMotion down for this.

Their WordPress web hosting offering is set on a couple of principles: being developer friendly, offering high security, good performance, and a WordPress-optimized environment.
As shown in the screenshot, our test site loaded in less than two seconds. That’s faster than 85% of all tested websites. Keeping in mind that the test site wasn’t using any performance optimization plugins, this result is very good.

As mentioned above, if you are on a shoestring budget, you can mostly get by with just buying a domain name, and making do with free stuff for the rest. Your site may be inaccessible from time to time, and you may have to fight your web editor to get it to work the way you want, but for simple personal sites that not selling anything and don’t have to be always available, this shouldn’t pose a substantial problem. Commercial sites, on the other hand, should not be penny wise and pound foolish.
