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. HostGator 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. HostGator only offers a full money-back guarantee for 45 days.

PostgreSQL

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. HostGator 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. HostGator charges for domains on all standard Shared Hosting plans.

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. HostGator 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.

Just wanted to rave about Patrick who helped me out today. I’ve spoken with lots of other web hosts, HostGator, BlueHost, DreamHost, etc... No one was as competent as he was. In a timely and friendly manner, he was able to answer all my questions and help me assess the best hosting package for my needs. I am exceptionally pleased and will be going with your hosting company because of his great expertise. Just saying, that’s how you do Customer Service and Sales right!"
