Free Solid-State Drives

InMotion Shared 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. With this level of performance, your content gets delivered to your visitors quicker. Dreamhost also offers Solid-State Drives with their Shared Hosting plans.

We transfer your entire account so you don't lose emails or settings.

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. Dreamhost does not offer PostgreSQL.

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 of the major TLDs including .com, .net, .org, .us, .biz or .info. Dreamhost also offers a free domain with the purchase of a Shared Hosting plan.

Pre-Installed WordPress

Get the popular Content Management System (CMS) WordPress installed with your hosting package on checkout. No need for any manual download or setup. InMotion Hosting gets you started as soon as you purchase your Shared Hosting plan. Dreamhost plans do not come with WordPress pre-installed for Shared Hosting.

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.

I was taken aback by the conversation I had with a member of your team who promptly and oh so politely completed my account confirmation. If you noticed, I said "conversation". It wasn't a dry technical support procedure via chat, it was someone who expressed interest in my venture and allowed me to share a bit of what I hoped to accomplish with InMotion Hosting. I have been with DreamHost for over ten years. For about a year I've known it was time to find new hosting. For my situation I did not see much benefit it replacing slow DreamHost with slow BlueHost. I’m looking forward to better hosting with InMotion."
