Web Hosting Hub Review Summary
Web Hosting Hub is the 'farm league' of hosting giant Inmotion and typically offers a more limited scale of plans. Rather than lowering the price and capabilities of the parent brand, Inmotion instead launched this hosting company to cater to the beginners and low-volume websites that are so pervasive on the Internet.

Editor's Review & Recommendation
Founded in 2010 as an offshoot of Inmotion, Web Hosting Hub offers only shared hosting plans to its users. This is becoming increasingly common with some 'pro' web hosting companies that are trying not to dilute their main brand by offering too large a stretch in terms of hosting plans and generally can work out quite well.
Unfortunately there are two ways of seeing this form a user point of view. On one end, it offers newbies and low-volume website owners the opportunity to (hopefully) benefit from the excellent hosting skills and infrastructure of the parent company without paying premium rates. It also means that as the 'budget arm', Web Hosting Hub does need to cut a few corners here and there in order to offer these rates.
The first indications of constraint only come once you scratch past the surface though. At first glance it's all good and you apparently get everything that comes with most hosting plans - some freebies, a good deal of resources, and even a personal onboarding call (that's something I haven't seen elsewhere yet).
Once you get past that you'll son discover that many things here are an 'optional extra'. Theoretically that's fine since something has to give, but did they really have to scrimp in areas such as backups and security? Perhaps five to ten years ago, users might ignore those bits but given how dangerous the cyber world is today, these features are practically a must-have.
Personally I would say that Web Hosting Hub isn't the ideal model that Inmotion should have created but it still is a fair opportunity for novices to learn their trade in web craft.
