Dedicated Hosting Hardware

All of our machines are 100% Dell. What does that mean? That means every machine is built and tested by Dell before we get them.



Disk Space

Each of our server CPU's has at least 2 cores and are threaded for increased performance. This allows you to run multiple processes in parallel thereby decreasing wait time. Our RAM amounts are selected to work specifically with our chosen CPU's. We don't put some arbitrary amount of DIMM and RANKS in each machine. Instead, each unit of RAM is matched with the CPU in order to maintain a clock speed of 1333mhz. We only use the highest quality server grade Hard Disk and Solid State Drives with SATA3 connectivity. Each hard drive is tested before we get them to ensure that failure does not happen.

Dedicated Hosting Software

InMotion provides Dedicated Linux Hosting through CentOS. Each machine comes preinstalled with our Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP (LAMP) stack and is optimized for best performance. We also include a cPanel and WHM install for free.

  • Linux: Each server comes with CentOS which is performance built, specifically for a server environment. CentOS maximizes CPU, RAM, and the network interface card for to increase speeds.
  • Apache: We tweak settings so that processes are already spawned long before they are needed. We also configure RAM to work with these processes to further reduce load times.
  • MySQL: We increase performance of your application or website by increasing the efficiency of the MySQL database.
  • PHP: Our Dedicated Servers utilizes SuPHP to give your website added security and functionality. Changes to the php.ini can also be made to allow customization of specific functions.s

Dynamic Combinations

Now that you have some information about how we give you as much performance possible on both the hardware and software side, let's put some combinations together and demonstrate how server performance is improved.


When it comes to maximizing how MySQL retrieves and stores data, we are the pros. If you are going to be running a large multiple data set database, our CPU selection utilizes threaded processors and high clock speeds to call or write data faster.

We utilize RAM to decrease data retrieval times by fine tuning the my.cnf file. Here we are able to create a table cache that pulls directly from RAM and not the physical hard drive.

MySQL database retrieval process

RAM + CentOS

The combination of RAM and CentOS allows data to be retrieved faster. RAM has the benefit of not having any moving parts, which slows down overall data retrieval times. Linux was built to use RAM almost as a separate disk and pulls commonly queried data from the physical hard drive onto the RAM chip. Since CentOS is a version of Linux, data is stored into RAM and then quickly sent to the user when requested.
