|InMotion Hosting vs GoDaddy – VPS Hosting
InMotion Hosting VPS plans all come with a high-availability feature providing real-time redundancy to keep your site(s) up and running. Your node will be a part of a cluster of servers that contain redundant hardware, so if your node fails for any reason, all of your data and files will be safeguarded, and your partition will spin up instantaneously on a different server. GoDaddy does not offer high-availability functionality within a VPS environment.
Free Solid-State Drives (SSDs)
All InMotion VPS Hosting plans come on premium Dell servers equipped with solid-state drives (SSDs) that perform up to 20x faster than traditional spinning hard drives. Faster read/write speeds means your content gets loaded and delivered to your visitors quicker. GoDaddy’s VPS Hosting plans do not come with solid-state drives.
Our snapshot feature provides users with the convenience of quickly and easily creating an identical copy of their VPS partition at any time during the development or maintenance process, allowing them to revert to this snapshot in time at any point, including files and RAM processes. GoDaddy does allow for 1 on-demand snapshot for their managed VPS options.
DDoS Attack Protection
All of our VPS Hosting plans utilize Corero’s SmartWall® Threat Defense Systems (TDS), providing all customers with real-time defenses against volumetric distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks up to 5 Gbps. This allows your Virtual Private Server to be protected while not blocking legitimate traffic to your sites through Corero’s exclusive pattern matching engine. GoDaddy also offers DDoS attack protection with VPS Hosting plans.
InMotion Hosting offers a free domain for a year with all multiple-month VPS packages. If you don’t want to purchase a domain during checkout, a domain credit will be added to your account to be redeemed at a time of your choosing. We offer all major TLDs including .com, .org, .net, .us, .biz or .info. GoDaddy charges for domains on all standard VPS Hosting plans.
InMotion Hosting is employee-owned and operated. 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!
Choice of Control Panel
Choose from cPanel or Control Web Panel to manage your server. This allows you to manage your domains, files and accounts quickly and easily.
InMotion Hosting boasts an industry leading 90-day money-back guarantee for all multiple-month VPS Hosting plans. We are 100% confident you will love our products and services, and if you are not completely satisfied, we’ll give you your money back. No questions asked. GoDaddy currently offers a 30-day money-back guarantee for their VPS Hosting plans.
Resource Monitoring Dashboard
Our Resource Monitoring Dashboard provides you with charts and graphs to help you to evaluate and manage your server resources, usage and allocation from within your Account Management Panel (AMP). GoDaddy currently does not offer a graphic interface for partition resource metrics of VPS Hosting plans.
Unlimited Domains, Subdomains and Email Accounts
Both InMotion Hosting and GoDaddy offer unlimited domains, subdomains and email accounts for VPS Hosting packages. We do not want to restrict you from having everything you need for your site(s) and business.
