InMotion Hosting A Small Orange

Free Solid-State Drives (SSDs)

InMotion Reseller 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. Our SSDs also include RAID 6 capabilities - a higher level of protection against data loss. With this level of performance, your content gets delivered to your visitors quicker.

Free Domain

We offer a FREE domain with all reseller 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, .org, .net, .us, .biz or .info. A Small Orange charges for their domains; only customers that buy twelve-month plans get a domain.

24/7/365 U.S. Based Support

Our support center is 100% based in the U.S. Every single support member is a part of the InMotion Hosting company, and is extensively trained to know our products inside-and-out. This localized support allows for better efficiency! A Small Orange, although offering U.S based support is owned by a conglomerate that has to provide support to 20+ brands.

Unlimited Websites

InMotion Hosting is dedicated to your website growing as a whole. We don't just look for "sign ups" like the web hosting conglomerates. Each of our Shared Business Hosting plans come with the option to scale up (or down) depending on your needs. You already hit the ground running with our robust Launch, Power, or Pro plans - with UNLIMITED disk space to start. A Small Orange starts you off at 500 MBs.

Free WHMCS on all accounts

WHMCS is an incredible, one-stop hosting solution for resellers that handles things like billing and support ticket requests. It is compatible with the major payment gateways such as Google Checkout, PayPal, Authorize.Net, and includes many features such as the ability to charge your clients monthly, accept various currencies, create invoices, and create promotions.

Free Domain Reseller Account (eNom)

InMotion Hosting has partnered with eNom to provide our Resellers with the most robust choice of TLDs for your reseller hosting clients. Offer the standard .com, .net, & .org, or offer your clients gTLD's like .news, .sale, and even .ninja! A Small Orange does not offer a partnership with eNom, the premium domain reseller provider.

Free Softaculous for 1-Click Application Installs

We know how much of a pain manually installing applications can be. That's why all InMotion Reseller Hosting plans come with our 1-Click Application Installer, Softaculous, free of cost to our customers. Get instant access to some of the biggest applications on the web such as WordPress, Drupal, e-commerce apps like PrestaShop, and 400+ more.

Free Dedicated IP

All Reseller accounts include one free IP address that they can use for all their client accounts. This helps separate you from the shared server and allows your white-label business as a reseller host operate independently. A Small Orange charges their customers. $2/month per dedicated IP.

Free cPanel Transfers

30 free cPanel to cPanel transfers to get your websites migrated. Transfers have to be requested within first 30 days after purchasing your hosting plan. There are some limitations including cPanel account size. Please check with our Sales Department for more information. A Small Orange does not offer the extensive transfer of 30 cPanels for free as InMotion Hosting does.

Reseller Hosting Experts

We KNOW our product intimately. InMotion Hosting doesn't just offer the reseller hosting product to make money like A Small Orange does. That's why we're the first and only web hosting service to provide a detailed description of what reseller hosting is with an infographic outlining the process, and key terms you should know before starting your successful journey as a Reseller Host.


Support for Multiple PHP 5 versions

You can use any combination of older PHP versions in any directory on the account. When using different software on one account, you may need to use an older version of PHP while running a newer version of PHP on a different domain. You may, for example, have PHP 5.4 for the site in public_html and then use PHP 5.2 in a subdirectory. At InMotion Hosting we know our customers aren’t all operating their systems equally- that’s why we offer this service.


InMotion Hosting is forthright with our customers. We have a "what you see is what you get" motto, and when you look at our reseller hosting plans - you see ALL that you're getting. With a Small Orange's reseller hosting plans - users are forced to dig deeply and canvas the website for more information on features, taking away time, and building frustration. InMotion Hosting believes in clarity.

Once again, InMotion Hosting has earned my appreciation and business. As you know, there is a lot of competition out there for web hosting and domain name registration. Time and again I use InMotion Hosting because the level of professionalism, ease to reach an English speaking, American support individual combined with easy to understand, transparent and reasonable fees cannot be beat. Not anywhere. InMotion is always easy to reach for any reason, and tech support when needed is 100% American, competent and responsive. Matt in your sales division was awesome as expected, and I’m on my way to starting our company’s newest website."
