Free cPanel License Included

All of our InMotion Hosting VPS plans come with a free cPanel license included! This allows you to manage your domains, files and accounts quickly and easily at no extra charge. Hostwinds charges $13/mo for a cPanel license on top of the cost of their VPS Hosting plans.

Real-Time Redundancy

InMotion Hosting VPS plans all come with a high-availability feature providing real-time redundancy to keep your site(s) up and running. Your node will be a part of a cluster of servers that contain redundant hardware, so if your node fails for any reason, all of your data and files will be safeguarded, and your partition will spin up instantaneously on a different server. Hostwinds does not offer cloud-based real-time redundancy for their Linux SSD VPS Hosting plans.

Free Solid-State Drives

All InMotion VPS Hosting plans come on premium Dell servers equipped with solid-state drives (SSDs) that perform up to 20x faster than traditional spinning hard drives. Faster read/write speeds means your content gets loaded and delivered to your visitors quicker. Hostwinds also offers VPS Hosting plans that include solid-state drives.

Unlocked CPU Usage

While most hosts limit you to a certain number of CPU cores for any given plan, we do not actually mitigate your core usage on our VPS servers. Availability provided, we will not restrict you to a certain number of CPU cores. Hostwinds has allotted CPU cores for their VPS Hosting packages.

Live-State Snapshots

Our snapshot feature provides users with the convenience of quickly and easily creating an identical copy of their VPS partition at any time during the development or maintenance process, allowing them to revert to this snapshot in time at any point. Hostwinds charges for R1Soft Nightly Backups.

SSH & Root Access

If you are an experienced developer and are looking to have your VPS provisioned quickly so you can get SSH access and root credentials to start making updates, InMotion Hosting VPS plans offer you that power. Hostwinds does not offer SSH and root access with their VPS Hosting plans.

Free Domain

InMotion Hosting offers a free domain for a year with all multiple-month VPS packages. If you don’t want to purchase a domain during checkout, a domain credit will be added to your account to be redeemed at a time of your choosing. We offer all major TLDs including .com, .org, .net, .us, .biz or .info. Hostwinds charges for domains on all standard VPS Hosting plans.

Money-Back Guarantee

InMotion Hosting boasts an industry leading 90-day money-back guarantee for all multiple-month VPS Hosting plans. We are 100% confident you will love our products and services, and if you are not completely satisfied, we’ll give you your money back. No questions asked. Hostwinds currently offers a 60-day money-back guarantee for their VPS Hosting plans.

When I first opened the chat, I was coming from two weeks of hell with two previous hosting companies (HostGator and Arvixe) which led me in loops trying to get my issues resolved. Shea shared a ton of great details about your packages, about your servers, then benefits on one package versus another, and advice on how I could get assistance on migrating my server. What should have been a five or 10 minute session ended up in a 30+ minute chat and resulted in me opening an account with IMH."
