Listing of Features comparing InMotion Hosting to GoDaddy
InMotion Hosting GoDaddy

Free Solid-State Drives

InMotion Shared Hosting includes free Solid-State Drives (SSD) that offer higher performance than standard spinning hard disk drives. During our internal benchmark test, we found SSD to be about 20 times faster than our SAS 15K drives. With this level of performance, your content gets delivered to your visitors quicker. GoDaddy does not offer Shared SSD Hosting.

Money-Back Guarantee

We are so confident you will love our InMotion Business Hosting product, we give you 90 days to try it out. If you are not completely satisfied with our product or service, you can request your money back. No questions asked. GoDaddy only offers a full money-back guarantee for 45 days.

45 Days

Free Data Backups

InMotion Hosting offers FREE data backups (up to 10GB) every 24-36 hours. Frequent data backups are very important for retaining your business-critical web information in case of data loss. GoDaddy backs up their data once a week randomly.

Every 24-36 Hours

Available at a cost


In addition to offering SSH Access, Ruby, and PHP, we offer both MySQL and PostgreSQL as options for your database management. This gives you the flexibility to develop applications with the database you feel more comfortable with. GoDaddy does not offer PostgreSQL.

Free Domain

We offer a FREE domain with all 1 and 2 year Business 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, .net, .org, .us, .biz or .info. GoDaddy also offers a free domain with the purchase of a Shared Hosting plan.

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. GoDaddy plans do not come with WordPress pre-installed.

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.

400+ Applications

70+ Applications

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. GoDaddy does not offer unlimited disk space and bandwidth with all of their Shared Hosting plans.


InMotion Hosting is employee-owned and operated. 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!

I had the pleasure today of parting with funds to your company because Patrick was such a pleasure to deal with. His manner was professional and he demonstrated the greatest level of patience walking a neophyte through the process of moving my hosting from GoDaddy to your servers. I chose to do business with InMotion on the spot becuase I was able to experience extraordinary service and support consistent with what your marketing message proclaims. In this respect, you are light years ahead of your competition and Patrick is a testament to what makes your organization stand heads and shoulders above all others."
