Upgrade to VPS Hosting with Solid State Drives

HD to HD-SSD icon

InMotion Hosting now provides a way for you to update your hosting account to a VPS hosting account that uses solid state hard drives (see Speed advantage of Solid State Hard Drives). The upgrade to your account is easily done using your Account Management Panel (AMP). There would be little to no downtime involved in the migration process.

  1. Login to AMP.
  2. Select Change Hosting Plan icon

    Look for the icon labeled Change Hosting Plan, then click on it.

  3. Select VPS Plan with SSD

    Click on the drop-down menu next to the field labeled “Change to:” then scroll down and select the suitable VPS plan. The VPS plan with the “S” at the end represents the plans that use solid state drives.

  4. Submit your plan change

    After you select the VPS plan with SSD that best suits your needs, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on SUBMIT in order to have your request processed.

Once you have clicked on the SUBMIT button, the request is automatically logged with the Technical Support team. Your request is processed as quickly as possible and may require a brief period to complete. If you have any questions regarding the migration or payment of your account, please contact our Technical Support or Account/Billing teams for further information. See our page for more information on SSD Hosting.

  • Do IP addresses, SSL certs, email settings, etc… port over 100% with ZERO adjustment time. Will do this but want no work or issues to complicate things.

    • Hello Craig,

      Yes as all of that is controlled by cPanel and not specific to the type of hard drive you are on.

  • What do I give up if I currently have an Advanced Dedicated Server and switch to VPS-3000S?  Since the price is less, what am I missing? I currently have 4GB memory VPS-3000S has 8GB so that is better.  I currently have 500GB disc, VPS-3000S has 200GB so that is not as good.  I currently have 4 sites sharing 3 IPs, so 3 IPs is enough I suppose.

    So I wonder if I would be giving up something I don’t see – in exchange for a 22% roughly savings in my monthly?

    Also, can you add more disk, either now or in the future, if so what is the cost/sizes/etc.?

    • Hello Dan,

      Thank you for your questions. A VPS is still essentially a shared server, while a Dedicated server will only house your account. You can see comparison charts here: VPS, Dedicated.

      Prices can differ based on the plan you signed up for, and the deals/coupons that are running at the time.

      Since this is just our public forum, I recommend contacting Live Support. This allows them to review your specific account/pricing and provide an account specific answer.

      Thank you,
