Meet UltraStack: Optimized Magento Performance
The power and flexibility of Magento provide vast benefits and features for an eCommerce store owner. However, the benefits of the Magento platform usually come at a price, application size, and speed. Our more than 20 years of experience in serving and optimizing performance for PHP frameworks as a Magento host led us to devise a hardware and software configuration that not only prevents slowdowns but optimizes both speed and reliability. The blazing-fast UltraStack optimized for Magento delivers the speed and reliability to keep your Magento websites humming and your visitors, customers, and clients coming back for more.
Nginx is used as a reverse-proxy to significantly speed up your website requests. This means you get very fast load times with our default installation.
PHP-FPM manages how PHP is executed on the server. By using PHP-FPM, you’ll make more efficient – and more secure – use of your server.
Apache, the most popular open-source web server, is used to serve your websites. Sitting behind NGINX, it secures and powers your server.
Redis is an object cache that stores information and keeps it in a NoSQL database to serve from, so instead of having to continually pull the information it can serve it from memory.
20X FASTER NVMe SSDS
Our Magento VPS and Dedicated Server plans use 100% NVMe and SSD servers. Our internal testing has shown that SSDs provide up to 20x faster I/O than traditional HDDs.
UNLOCKED INTEL CPU CORES
Run more tasks faster with unlocked CPU cores. At InMotion Hosting, we don’t lock you down or restrict the number of cores you can use.
Get cloud reliability without the cost. Each VPS is replicated three times for maximum uptime – ready to automatically spin up if needed.
DDOS ATTACK PROTECTION
Protect your website against a wide range of attacks. Keeps your website safe and your clients happy.
Rev up your online presence with a faster more responsive website on the Magento-Optimized UltraStack

Which hosting type is better for Magento?
The choice of hosting type for Magento depends on your specific needs, budget, and technical expertise. Magento is a relatively resource-intensive application that performs best and most reliably with dedicated resources available to support it. Therefore, VPS and Dedicated Server hosting platforms are recommended.
VPS Hosting: Our VPS Hosting solutions for Magento offer all the dedicated resources, features, and flexibility you need to launch, build, and grow your unique Magento web store. VPS hosting is the ideal platform for establishing new Magento business sites or supporting most small to medium sized businesses running Magento.
- Scalability and Control: VPS hosting provides more control and resources than shared hosting. It’s ideal for growing stores and offers scalability to handle increased traffic.
- Isolation: Each VPS is isolated from others on the same physical server, which improves security and performance compared to shared hosting.
Dedicated Servers: Our Dedicated Servers tailored for Magento excel in powering larger eCommerce platforms like Magento open source and enterprise editions, and are optimized for managing high traffic and substantial transaction loads. If you seek greater control over your hosting environment and server, exploring bare metal servers is worthwhile, though technical expertise is required. Chat with one of our Dedicated Magento Server hosting specialists to learn more and find your best fit Magento hosting server.
- High Performance: Dedicated hosting offers an entire server dedicated exclusively to your Magento store. This provides the highest level of performance and control.
- Customization: You can fully customize the server environment to meet your store’s unique requirements.
- Best for Large Stores: Dedicated hosting is typically chosen by large e-commerce businesses with high traffic and resource demands.
What's the difference between your Magento VPS/Dedicated Servers and Magento Cloud Hosting solutions?
With our Magento Hosting on VPS and Dedicated Servers, your Magento store resides on a physical server or dedicated virtual environment. You have complete control over your servers’ resources and configurations. Cloud Magento Hosting involves a distributed network of virtual servers. Your Magento store is hosted across multiple virtual machines in the cloud.
There are several benefits to hosting Magento on VPS or Dedicated Servers over cloud hosting:
- Resource Allocation: VPS and Dedicated Servers provide dedicated resources for your Magento store, ensuring consistent performance. In contrast, cloud hosting shares resources with other users, potentially leading to performance fluctuations.
- Customization: VPS and Dedicated Servers allow for deep customization of server settings, enabling you to tailor the environment to your specific Magento needs. Cloud hosting often has limitations on customization.
- Predictable Costs: VPS and Dedicated Servers typically offer predictable monthly costs, making budgeting easier. Cloud hosting often follows a pay-as-you-go model, which can result in variable and less predictable costs.
- Security Control: With VPS and Dedicated Servers, you have more control over security configurations, making it easier to implement custom security measures. In a shared cloud environment, security may be managed by the hosting provider.
- Performance Stability: VPS and Dedicated Servers offer consistent, high performance because you’re not sharing resources with other users. In a cloud environment, performance may vary based on the activities of other users on the same network.
So in many scenarios, VPS or Dedicated Servers are more suitable for hosting Magento sites. VPS or Dedicated Servers are ideal when you need full control and predictability over server resources, such as for high-traffic e-commerce stores with specific performance requirements. If you have resource-intensive operations, like large product catalogs or complex data processing, VPS/Dedicated Servers can deliver more stable and efficient performance. And compliance requirements may necessitate dedicated hosting, as it allows you to implement specific security measures and configurations.
Is Magento hosting the same as Adobe Commerce?
Magento is the common name for the open-source application, which is free to use.

Adobe Commerce prices start at $22,000 per year and their Magento Cloud platform starts at $40,000 per year which includes Magento Enterprise services on a Magento cloud hosting platform. InMotion Hosting Magento Hosting solutions start at $34.99/mo and includes a custom server stack optimized for Magento performance, all application features, no vendor lock-in, available Magento managed hosting services, and 24/7 human support.
What are the server requirements for hosting Magento applications?
InMotion Hosting Magento Hosting solutions cover all the server requirements as recommended by Magento. So you get to enjoy hassle-free, powerful and reliable hosting that lets you focus on your business. Our Magento Hosting server stack offers CentOS as the OS (Debian and Ubuntu also available on Dedicated Servers), Apache, NGINX, PHP 7 & 8, Redis, PHP-FPM and all plans include free managed hosting services for custom server configs and additional enhancements like Varnish and Elasticsearch or OpenSearch at no extra cost.
