The Benefits of Solid State Drives for VPS Hosting
InMotion Hosting's Virtual Private Servers are now using Solid State Drives (SSDs), a type of hard drive that uses no mechanical parts and provides substantial performance upgrades from traditional spinning drives. Solid State Drives give you faster read/write speeds, can handle more disk requests and can push through significantly more data than a standard Hard Disk Drive (HDD).
During testing on our best-in-class servers, we found:
- SSDs perform about 20 times faster than HDDs
- SSDs were able to push through about 65% more data from the server
- During times of high I/O requests, these data numbers rose to approximately 95% when compared to HDDs
Bottom line: the SSD upgrade to Virtual Private Server hosting plans means improved performance, increased uptime and lower power needs.

Values represent maximum available RAM accessible for a given VPS S-Class plan. During low-traffic periods when your partition requires a lower level of resources, allocated RAM may be lower (1.5GB for VPS-1000S, 3GB for VPS-2000S and 6GB for VPS-3000S). Burstable RAM will be available during times of need for increased resources.
Today's broadband connections demand faster and more reliable performance from your web site and email. With an InMotion Hosting VPS account you'll have access to the fastest Gigabit network available. Our network was specifically built to be expandable for capacity and for throughput. Our all Gigabit server farm is connected to the Internet through 3 separate providers with an on demand capacity exceeding 7,500 MBits. We utilize BGP4 Smart Routing and can switch instantly and transparently away from any of our providers that are experiencing latency or downtime. Our advanced knowledge and planning allow us to provide extremely fast and reliable service while still offering affordable hosting on our virtual private servers.
Accounts hosted on our virtual private servers are now provisioned with RAID 6! RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is a way of storing the data on multiple hard disks to improve performance and increase fault tolerance. RAID 6 provides increased throughput compared to other RAID types without sacrificing life span. In the rare event a hard drive fails, the machine continues to serve your site, and we seamlessly replace the failed drive from our on hand supply.
Included IP addresses are provided for free but on a need basis. ARIN rules require actual usage of an IP address so you must submit the domain name associated with any additional IP addresses. Additional IP addresses above the included IPs are available - please call our sales staff for pricing depending on number of IPs required. Limitations apply and this is no guarantee of availability.

CentOS is the most popular version of Linux for web servers. It is an open-source Linux distribution derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), but it is not affiliated with Red Hat, Inc. With its fast-growing base of users and community contributors, CentOS is constantly tested and updated to ensure that its users have a stable, secure and high-performance hosting environment. A recent version of CentOS is included with every InMotion VPS plan. InMotion has utilized CentOS as its primary server operating system for over 10 years. As a result of this experience, our technical teams are expert in how CentOS functions. They use this know-how to optimize CentOS for peak performance and stability and they are able to provide you with in-depth technical assistance should you need it.

What is Virtual Private Server Hosting and what are the benefits?
Virtual Private Server Hosting or VPS Hosting is essentially a dedicated server within a shared hosting environment. With VPS Hosting, each customer can run their own virtualized operating system within a partition of a dedicated server. Even though multiple customers are on the same physical machine, VPS Hosting allows each customer's account/website to have all the capabilities of being on their own separate machine. This type of hosting offers advanced performance and flexibility with the ability to customize at an affordable price.
How does VPS Hosting differ from Dedicated Server Hosting and Shared Hosting?
While Dedicated Server Hosting offers isolated hardware, where resources such as disk input/output and host network connections are not shared, it also requires a significant upfront investment and a higher level of technical capability to manage it. With VPS Hosting, you share a server with other customers, but remain isolated from those other users on the server. With Virtual Private Server Hosting you are granted your own section of a partitioned dedicated server with a guaranteed threshold of dedicated RAM, storage and bandwidth and have the ability to customize this partition, much like a dedicated server. VPS Hosting provides a more cost-effective and scalable option for growing businesses when compared to Dedicated Server Hosting. On the other hand, with Shared Hosting you share a portion of the server with other users, potentially affecting your output if other users on the same server are experiencing high traffic.
What can I do with VPS Hosting?
As the stepping stone between Shared Hosting and a Dedicated Server, VPS Hosting provides a powerful, reliable and scalable hosting option for a myriad of different uses and applications. Whether you have a growing business, are looking to set up an online store, building a portfolio or wanting to set up unique applications, VPS Hosting is capable of supporting a number of different situations and configurations. Learn more about which VPS Hosting option is right for you!
Can I configure my own operating system with a Virtual Private Server?
Although multiple VPS accounts are hosted on one physical server, we can run several different virtualized operating systems on that one server. Each of these operating systems will perform as if it was on its own dedicated server, giving you all of the benefits at a fraction of the cost. InMotion Hosting uses Parallels Virtuozzo Container to virtualize the operating system.
What additional features come with a Virtual Private Server at InMotion Hosting?
InMotion Hosting’s Virtual Private Server Hosting comes with a number of additional features including free solid-state drives (SSDs), a free full cPanel license, 2-3 free dedicated IP addresses, WHM, CentOS, burstable RAM, automated data backups, unlimited MySQL databses, email accounts and FTP accounts, root access and SSH access.
Will speed or storage be affected by other people on the same server?
No. Unlike Shared Hosting, where all accounts share the same available resources with all the other accounts on the server, VPS hosting gives you your own dedicated CPU, memory and disk space. Your site will not be affected by other users on the same server.
What type of hardware will my VPS be hosted on at InMotion Hosting?
All of our Virtual Private Servers run on enterprise factory built and tested hardware from Dell. They are connected to our core router via 20 Gb per second LAG, allowing for low latencies and high speed access to the internet.
What kind of support does InMotion Hosting provide with my Virtual Private Server?
InMotion Hosting offers 24x7x365 support with all VPS Hosting plans. We take pride in providing the best customer support on the market, giving you access to our team of experts via telephone, email, chat or Knowledge Center. We also provide Managed Hosting for a nominal cost, providing you with a dedicated system administrator to help with any technical difficulties you may encounter while setting up or maintaining your Virtual Private Server.
