In VPSBenchmark's opinion

Feature Value Comment
UI Friendliness 

Minimal sets of features in UI but sufficient.

Quality of Service 

Activation of a VPS requires a personal phone call from InMotion where they ask what the server will be used for.
The whole process takes about 1 hour in my experience during business hours.
