The first step to getting a subscription for a hosting account is to simply go to the InMotion Hosting website. Once you’re there, select the plan that you want to use. For the purpose of this tutorial, we will be selecting a VPS account.

If you want to select a shared server using the UltraStack configuration, you can choose between Shared Hosting and WordPress Hosting. If you go with WordPress Hosting, you will have the option to not install WordPress and simply install your own CMS as needed. You will see it described in the next step.

Selecting the UltraStack Configuration

If you have selected WordPress Hosting, you will see the option below:

Here you will be given a choice of Data Centers. Always choose the center geographically closest to your viewer/customer base. The Standard configuration does not use the UltraStack configuration. You would need to choose either the WordPress Configuration or PHP Configuration to use Ultrastack.
