Frequently Asked Questions

What is PHP Hosting?

PHP hosting refers to web hosting services that support the PHP programming language, which is widely used for building dynamic websites and web applications. PHP is a server-side scripting language that is designed for web development and runs on a web server, typically alongside other server-side languages like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

InMotion Hosting is a PHP hosting provider that offers a range of hosting solutions, including shared hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated hosting, and WordPress hosting. PHP hosting solutions make it easy for website owners and developers to build and deploy PHP-based websites and applications that are fast, secure, and scalable.

InMotion Hosting offers a variety of features and tools to support PHP development, such as support for multiple PHP versions, MySQL databases, and popular web development frameworks like WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla. InMotion Hosting’s UltraStack infrastructure offers PHP accelerators and caching tools that optimize the performance of PHP-based websites and applications.

Why should I start with Shared Hosting?

Shared Hosting is a great, entry-level 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. Read more about why to start with Shared Hosting.

Why are NVMe drives good for PHP-based websites?

NVMe drives are much faster than traditional hard drives or even SSDs, which means that PHP-based websites hosted on NVMe drives can load much faster. This is because NVMe drives use PCIe interface to communicate with the server’s CPU, allowing for much faster data transfer rates than traditional SATA-based drives.

NVMe drives also have lower latency than traditional hard drives, which means that data can be read and written much more quickly. This can result in faster page load times, which is especially important for PHP-based websites that often have to access large databases and process a lot of data.

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 on your business shared hosting plan 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.

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 LiteSpeed Web Server license.
