With the power of modern servers and Internet data speeds, something like the geographical location of a server may seem trivial. After all, data zips across the Internet so quickly, so does location matter anymore? Shared or VPS Hosting customers may not need quite as much out of their hosting plans. But, Dedicated Server clients demand greater performance, speed, and reliability. Squeezing more out of a server means exploiting every opportunity for performance boosters, including Data Center location.

Over the past year, InMotion Hosting has invested heavily in upgrading our infrastructure, data centers and advanced hosting services. We had already set the bar high by having one of the most reliable network uptimes in the industry, but we have reset the bar even higher by adding more features, bolstering our infrastructure and adding amazing new services.
What does this mean for you? It means we are doing even more to improve your experience with us. Some critical adjustments we have made include:
Additional redundancy and bandwidth capacity to our internal network
Partnered with the Tier 1 bandwidth providers to insure you have the best and fastest paths to your web services
Added more redundancy and bandwidth to our backend networks
This means that we can actually provide 99.99% uptime or better. Many of our competitors promise that they can maintain 99.9% uptime – this means that you could be down for over eight hours per year. We found that unacceptable so we beefed up our network to better serve your needs.
In addition to upgrading or network, we have invested in upgrading our shared server fleet. Our new servers have more CPU power, more RAM, and more disk space, giving our customers better performance and reliability over our old server fleet. Couple that with new Commercial Class Dedicated Servers, our brand new Premier Support team and our vastly improved one-click application installer and we have made a lot of great changes for you in 2012 and the beginning of 2013! We’ve got a lot more in store, so make sure to check back often to see what we’re up to!
