Improve your site performance with NGINX caching. Server-side caching that will cache or ‘remember’ requests already made to your website and serving that request from cache memory much quicker than any web-server can reprocess it.

PHP-FPM is one of the newest PHP handlers that are available. Moving from SuPHP to PHP-FPM will decrease your sites load time as well as the system resource usage. This happens by enabling caching and serving from memory static PHP that is not going to change or cause changes on your site. It is built off of the PHP FastCGI Handler and is designed for speed, privacy, and performance. By utilizing PHP-FPM rather than the old suPHP handler it allows us to lower resource utilization and decrease load time by caching the underlying PHP code, which seldom changes.

We have two data centers located on the east and west coasts and provide our customers the option to select which one they want to host their files on. This means customers can host their files closer to their audience. This ensures faster delivery of content to audiences.

Our Business Hosting plans offer our customers the ability to install over 400 applications with 1-click. These applications include popular CMSs such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and shopping carts such as PrestaShop and OpenCart. Best of all, our application installer also allows 1-click application updates and safe rollback. This means you can update your application to the latest version with 1-click. The safe rollback feature means that if the newer version breaks your plugin, theme, or any other critical feature, then you can simply roll your entire application back to the previous version.

We take great pride in the reputation of our company and strive to resolve any issues that our clients may have. The Better Business Bureau is the leading agency in the country for consumers researching the companies they deal with. InMotion Hosting has continually maintained an A Rating with the BBB for nearly 5 years.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Shared Hosting?

Shared Hosting is a popular, inexpensive, entry-level web hosting product, often attractive for small and medium businesses, blogs, portfolios, and websites with moderate amounts of traffic. With Shared Hosting multiple websites share a large server and resources, including storage, bandwidth, and disk space. With Shared Hosting, the web host is responsible for all server maintenance and upkeep.

Why should I start with Shared Hosting?

Shared Hosting is a great, cheap option when you’re just starting out. In the initial stages of launching a web presence, or refreshing what you have, until your website builds momentum, opting for the lowest priced option is a smart business decision. If you do not need specific software or configurations then Shared Hosting is perfect for you.

What is PHP-FPM?

PHP-FPM is one of the newest PHP handlers that are available. Moving from SuPHP to PHP-FPM will decrease your sites load time as well as the system resource usage. This happens by enabling caching and serving from memory static PHP that is not going to change or cause changes on your site. It is built off of the PHP FastCGI Handler and is designed for speed, privacy, and performance. By utilizing PHP-FPM rather than the old suPHP handler it allows us to lower resource utilization and decrease load time by caching the underlying PHP code, which seldom changes.

How many websites can I host with my Shared Hosting plan?

The number of websites you can host with one account depends on the Shared Hosting plan you select. For Launch plans, you will be allotted 2 websites for your account. For Power plans, you can have up to 50 websites. With our Pro plan, you can host 100 websites. No hidden fees or surprise charges, just multiple websites for one low price.

What is UltraStack?

UltraStack is our proprietary Operating System stack that we have optimized and set up to be the simplest and fastest web hosting experience possible. Through our team’s experience and skills, we have been able to create a stack that is customizable and suitable for almost any CMS or PHP/HTML based site.

What is NGINX Caching?

NGINX is a web server, but also a proxy server, and one of the most widely used functions of NGINX is its proxy technology. When you deploy NGINX as a reverse proxy or load balancer, you can enable powerful cache features. NGINX allows us to be able to store your whole page into memory and serve from memory rather than having to execute code each time your page is visited. This allows for a fast response since none of the underlying code needs to be executed for a particular page.

Why does InMotion Hosting use NGINX over Litespeed?

NGINX is a software that is based on the Open Source License System and we are able to use it and modify it to fit our customer’s needs without forcing our customers to purchase a license.

I already have a website with another host. Can I transfer my website?

Yes, you can transfer your website for free to your InMotion Hosting account. Your free website transfer includes up to 3 websites, databases, and/or cPanel accounts. The cost for additional website transfers is $10 per item. If you choose to transfer your website, we have a comprehensive support center. Troubleshoot your issues with extensive step-by-step articles, education channels, and customer-driven community support forums.

I have 3 sites hosted on Arvixe but after numerous problems with server crashes, WordPress issues and theme installation trouble, not to mention the horrendously long waiting times for support, I decided to switch to another host. After searching online for "best WordPress hosting," I saw that InMotion was featured in almost all reviews as being one of the best, so after talking to Adam and Austin and having them answer all of my annoying questions, I signed up for the Launch Plan. After I changed the nameservers, my site was ready to go again after about 10 minutes! Everything seems to be working fine and the page load speeds are super fast! Thanks for the great service, hope to be a long time customer!"
