Free Solid-State Drives

During our internal benchmark test, we found SSD to be about 20 times faster than our SAS 15K drives. InMotion Hosting includes free Solid-State Drives (SSD) that offer higher performance than standard spinning hard disk drives. Our SSDs also include RAID 6 capabilities - a higher level of protection against data loss. With this level of performance, your content gets delivered to your visitors quicker.

FREE No-Downtime Website Transfers

Transfer your sites to us for FREE! We offer totally free website and account transfers when you sign up with us today – up to 3 cPanel accounts up to 5GB each. We transfer your entire account so you don't lose emails or settings. Our transfer process ensures that no downtime occurs, keeping your site online while we move all your files and before you switch your DNS.

Free Domain

We offer a FREE domain with all hosting plans. If you don’t want to purchase one during checkout, we’ll give you a free domain credit to use at a later time for all of the major TLDs including .com, .org, .net, .us, .biz or .info. A Small Orange charges for their domains; only customers that buy twelve-month plans get a domain.

24/7/365 U.S. Based Support

Our support center is 100% based in the U.S. Every single support member is a part of the InMotion Hosting company, and is extensively trained to know our products inside-and-out. This localized support allows for better efficiency! A Small Orange, although offering U.S based support is owned by a conglomerate that has to provide support to 20+ brands.

Plan Scalability

InMotion Hosting is dedicated to your website growing as a whole. We don't just look for "sign ups" like the web hosting conglomerates. Each of our Shared Business Hosting plans come with the option to scale up (or down) depending on your needs. You already hit the ground running with our robust Launch, Power, or Pro plans - with UNLIMITED diskspace to start. A Small Orange starts you off at 500 MBs.

Pre-Installed WordPress

Get the popular Content Management System (CMS) WordPress installed with your hosting package on checkout. No need for any manual download or setup. InMotion Hosting gets you started as soon as you purchase your Shared Hosting plan.

Free SSL

Keeping your website and content secure is our top priority. That's why we provide a free private SSL on all Shared Business Hosting plans. Perfect for eCommerce and more, you can complete online transactions and accept payments on your website worry-free.

Hosting with cPanel

InMotion Hosting provides a FREE cPanel license on all hosting plans - where managing your business is easier than ever! Upgrading/downgrading customer accounts, creating custom packages for customer type, and creating customer emails are just a few of the many features that cPanel can achieve for you!

Free Data Backups

Frequent data backups are very important for retaining your business-critical web information in the event of data loss. InMotion Hosting offers FREE data backups (up to 10GB) every 24-36 hours. A Small Orange backs up their servers every 7 days on a cycle - which is simply too long for customer data.

90 Day Money-Back Guarantee

We are so confident you will love our hosting products, that we offer you 90 days to try it out. If you are not completely satisfied with our service or product, you can request your money back. No questions asked!

Unlimited Disk Space & Bandwidth

InMotion Hosting offers unlimited disk space and bandwidth with all Launch, Power and Pro Business Hosting plans. We believe a lack of resources should never limit your ability to run your website.

Support Multiple PHP5

You can use any combination of older PHP versions in any directory on the account. When using different software on one account, you may need to use an older version of PHP while running a newer version of PHP on a different domain. You may, for example, have PHP 5.4 for the site in public_html and then use PHP 5.2 in a subdirectory. At InMotion Hosting we know our customers aren't all operating their systems equally- that's why we offer this service.

Free 1-Click Application Auto-Installer

All of InMotion Business Hosting plans come with our 1-Click Application Installer, Softaculous, free of cost. We know how much of a pain manually installing applications can be, so get instant access to some of the biggest applications on the web such as WordPress, PrestaShop, Drupal and more.

Automatic Vulnerability Patching

We work hard to keep your website safe from malware and hackers! Your website files are regularly scanned and patched for vulnerabilities by our security system. Any malware and potential exploits are quarantined to prevent damage to your site and data. This automatically patches your applications with the latest security updates available.

Max Speed Zones

InMotion Hosting has data centers on both the West Coast and the East Coast of the United States. We give you your choice based on location and proximity for optimal speeds, something we call Max Speed Zones. A Small Orange does not offer you to choose which server is nearest you to host from.

Employee-Owned

InMotion Hosting is employee-owned and operated and has been since 2001. Being an independent organization, we can focus beyond just the bottom line. Our core values are built around meeting customer needs and constantly enhancing their experience. Our #1 goal is to thrill you, the customer!

When I first opened the chat, I was coming from two weeks of hell with two previous hosting companies (HostGator and Arvixe) which led me in loops trying to get my issues resolved. Shea shared a ton of great details about your packages, about your servers, then benefits on one package versus another, and advice on how I could get assistance on migrating my server. What should have been a five or 10 minute session ended up in a 30+ minute chat and resulted in me opening an account with IMH."
