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.

InMotion Hosting Extra Services

In addition to features included in the VPS plan, InMotion Hosting also offers the following services (possibly for a fee):

Backups   Block storage Object storage Load balancer Floating IP addresses
Teams Managed databases Serverless DDoS protection   Kubernetes
GPU instances
