InMotion Hosting vs Bluehost vs GoDaddy

Free Solid-State Drives

InMotion Shared Hosting plans include free Solid-State Drives (SSD) that offer higher performance than standard spinning hard disk drives (HDD). During our internal benchmark test, we found SSD to be about 20 times faster than our SAS 15K drives. With this level of performance, your content gets delivered to your visitors quicker.

Unlimited Email Accounts and Storage

We know how important email is to your business. That’s why, with InMotion Shared Hosting, you have unlimited email. Create as many email accounts as you need. Have your email match your domain name. Send and receive email from any device. Plus our Shared Hosting also offers unlimited email storage, so feel free to store and archive all your important business emails.

No-Downtime Website Transfers

Transfer your sites to us for free! We offer totally free website and account transfers when you sign up with us today – up to 3 cPanel accounts with up to 5GB each. We transfer your entire account so you don’t lose emails or settings. Our transfer process ensures that no downtime occurs, keeping your site online while we move all your files and before you switch your DNS.

Free Domain

We offer a free domain with all 1 and 2-year Business 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 the major TLDs including .com, .net, .org, .us, .biz or .info. Bluehost only offers a free domain with their Plus and Business Pro plans, and GoDaddy offers a free domain with all Shared Hosting plans.

WordPress Drag-and-Drop Website Builder

Every Shared Hosting plan comes with BoldGrid, our free premium website builder. It’s ready-made templates and easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface make it a breeze to quickly build beautiful, responsive websites. With BoldGrid, there’s also no limit to the number of pages you can create, and everything is 100% yours, meaning you’re finally in complete control of your website. Bluehost only comes with Weebly.

Free SSL

Keeping your website and content secure is our top priority. That’s why we provide a free private SSL on all Shared Business Hosting plans. Perfect for eCommerce and more, you can complete online transactions and accept payments on your website worry-free. GoDaddy only includes a free SSL on their Ultimate plan.

Free 1-Click Application Auto-Installer

All of InMotion Business Hosting plans come with our 1-Click Application Installer, Softaculous, free of cost. We know how much of a pain manually installing applications can be, so get instant access to some of the most prominent applications on the web such as WordPress, PrestaShop, Drupal, and more.

Automatic Vulnerability Patching

We work hard to keep your website safe from malware and hackers! Your website files are regularly scanned and patched for vulnerabilities by our security system. Any malware and potential exploits are quarantined to prevent damage to your site and data. This automatically patches your applications with the latest security updates available.

PostgreSQL

In addition to offering SSH Access, Ruby, and PHP, we offer both MySQL and PostgreSQL as options for your database management. This gives you the flexibility to develop applications with the database you feel more comfortable with. Bluehost offers PostgreSQL databases, and GoDaddy does not.

Unlimited Disk Space & Bandwidth

InMotion Hosting offers unlimited disk space and bandwidth with all Launch, Power, and Pro Business Hosting plans. We believe a lack of resources should never limit your ability to run your website. Bluehost only offers it for their Plus and Business Pro plans, and GoDaddy only offers it for their Deluxe and Ultimate plans.

Exclusive 24/7/365 U.S.-Based Support

InMotion Hosting prides itself on Customer Service. We offer 24/7/365 U.S.-based support and are available via six support channels: phone, live chat, ticket, online tutorials, and community Q&A. We make sure we can promptly address any issues you might run into. Our goal is to thrill the customer! Bluehost only offers three support channels while GoDaddy only offers two support channels.

InMotion Hosting is employee-owned and operated and has been since 2001. Being an independent organization, we can focus beyond just the bottom line. Our core values are built around meeting customer needs and constantly enhancing their experience. Our #1 goal is to thrill you, the customer!

Unmatched Speed and Performance

Our data centers are located on IXPs which create a virtual shortcut between your site and your visitors. Global communication partners allow your site to jump across networks, reaching your visitors faster. Dual high performance fiber optics link directly from the ISP to your server, which creates an instantaneous connection. All SSD servers are 20X faster than the traditional HDDs many of our competitors still use. Triple-tier server-level caching “pre-loads” your files to avoid disk reads, making your site load faster. Max Speed Zones give you the ultimate choice in site speed. All of these technical enhancements really do one single thing – make your websites load as fast as possible.

Rock Solid Defense

We take security very seriously. This is why you see our network and your site, stay online when so many competitors go down. We utilize internal scripts and APIs to change the network routing dynamically. We’ve partnered with Corero, so you’re protected from DDoS attacks. And custom firewalls, suPHP, CageFS, and a shared SSL certificate add layer upon layer of safety and security to your account and sites.

I just switched over from GoDaddy and couldn’t be happier. I had too many problems with GoDaddy and the shared hosting was making my site really slow to load. They made the site transfer very smoothly. Their tech support department is very helpful, ask for Edward, he spends hours to make sure that everything is in order. So far so good.
