Shared Hosting users will be able to easily customize and manage their account with cPanel. cPanel, or control panel, is a user-friendly interface that will allow you to manage email, domains, files, and more.  Below is a quick list of the settings and configurations you’ll be able to manage in cPanel.


Softaculous Installer

For the easy installation of web applications like WordPress or Joomla, Shared Hosting users will be able to use the installer Softaculous. Using Softaculous to install web applications will also save time as it automates many of the tasks involved in software installation.

More advanced users will also be able to use Secure Shell (SSH) to complete tasks that cannot be completed in cPanel. SSH, which is remote command line access to a server, can also help users speed up certain server management tasks. 


WordPress Command Line Interface (WP-CLI) is pre-installed on all Shared Hosting accounts and allows you to manage your WordPress website(s) via SSH. WP-CLI allows you to efficiently maintain your WordPress website(s) without a web browser.


Free SSL & Paid SSL

All Shared Hosting accounts come with a free SSL that users can enable once the plan is purchased. Though the free SSL is perfect for most, users also have the option to purchase an additional SSL certificate via the Account Management Panel (AMP). The SSL certificate is used to secure your website and acts as visual reassurance to visitors that your website can be trusted.

Free Server Scans

Our Shared Hosting users will also enjoy free server scans. Whenever you suspect malicious activity on your server, you can submit an account scan ticket request. For enhanced security, users can also purchase Sucuri.

Free Backups & Data Restoration Request

Backups and restoration requests are easy for Shared Hosting users. Automated backups are performed every 24-48 hours for user convenience and overwrites the previous backup. In addition, for accounts under 10GB, users can request for data restoration in AMP, which restores a website backup. However, users can also take control of their own backups and restorations, which is recommended, with the Backup Manager.

Note: Per Terms of Service under Data Backup, InMotion Hosting maintains, as a convenience to its clients, regular automated data backups on accounts equal to or less than 10 gigabytes in total size. This service is included only with Business Class or Virtual Private Server hosting accounts and is provided at no additional charge. Hosting accounts greater than 10 gigabytes in size will not be included in regular data backups; this service is, however, available for an additional service charge for accounts exceeding the 10 gigabyte size limit.

While InMotion Hosting does maintain backups, this service is provided as a convenience only and InMotion Hosting assumes no liability as to the availability or completeness of client data backups. Each client is expected and encouraged to maintain backup copies of their own data.
