Solid-State Drives

Included with all Business Hosting plans. Not Available

Why You Should Care

Solid-state drives (SSD) offer higher performance than hard disk drives. During our internal benchmarking test, we found SSDs to be about 20 times faster than our SAS 15K drives! With this level of performance, your content will get delivered to your visitors faster.

FatCow does not offer SSD drives with their shared hosting accounts.

SSH & suPHP

Included Not Available

Why You Should Care

Providing SSH allows more advanced users a greater level of access than what is available through standard web hosting control panels. This means users can work more quickly, efficiently, and securely within their server.

suPHP is the next generation of scripting access which provides far greater security than PHPSuExec when running PHP based scripts. We provide suPHP with all shared hosting plans.

As a business with an online presence, the protection of your data and web files is of the utmost importance. In the event of a catastrophic system or user error, valuable data can be lost in moments. The backing up of your data and web files can help insure that the recovery of that data is as smooth as possible. While most hosting companies allow you to backup your own data, InMotion Hosting goes a step further and backs up all customer data every 24-36 hours.
