Max Speed Zones

InMotion Hosting has data centers on both the West Coast and the East Coast of the United States. We offer Max Speed Zones which allows you to choose your data center location based on proximity, to achieve optimal speeds. SiteGround only has one US data center.

Free Domain

We offer a FREE domain with all 1 and 2 year Business Hosting plans. If you don't want to purchase one during checkout, we'll give you a free domain credit to use at a later time for all of the major TLDs including .com, .net, .org, .us, .biz or .info. SiteGround also offers a free domain with the purchase of a Shared Hosting plan.

Pre-Installed WordPress

Get the popular Content Management System (CMS) WordPress installed with your hosting package on checkout. No need for any manual download or setup. InMotion Hosting gets you started as soon as you purchase your Shared Hosting plan. SiteGround plans do not come with WordPress pre-installed.

Free SSL

Keeping your website and content secure is our top priority. That's why we provide a free private SSL on all Shared Business Hosting plans. Perfect for eCommerce and more, you can complete online transactions and accept payments on your website worry-free.

Separate Staging Area

When you sign up for a Business Hosting plan with InMotion Hosting, you also get sub domains available with your account. You can use them to set up a testing environment for your ongoing development and site changes. Then, once your satisfied with the changes, you would just duplicate them on your live site. This safeguards you against any kind of error when updating your site. Our premium WordPress website builder, BoldGrid, also offers a staging area built in!

Free 1-Click Application Auto-Installer

All of InMotion Business Hosting plans come with our 1-Click Application Installer, Softaculous, free of cost. We know how much of a pain manually installing applications can be, so get instant access to some of the biggest applications on the web such as WordPress, PrestaShop, Drupal and more.

Automatic Vulnerability Patching

We work hard to keep your website safe from malware and hackers! Your website files are regularly scanned and patched for vulnerabilities by our security system. Any malware and potential exploits are quarantined to prevent damage to your site and data. This automatically patches your applications with the latest security updates available.

Unlimited Disk Space & Bandwidth

InMotion Hosting offers unlimited disk space and bandwidth with all Launch, Power and Pro Business Hosting plans. We believe a lack of resources should never limit your ability to run your website. None of SiteGround's Shared Hosting packages offer unlimited disk space.

InMotion Hosting prides itself on Customer Service. We offer 24/7/365 U.S.-based support via phone, chat and email to make sure we can promptly address any issues you might run into. Our goal is to thrill the customer!

Unmatched Speed And Performance

Our data centers are located on IXPs which create a virtual shortcut between your site and your visitors. Global communication partners allow your site to jump across networks, reaching your visitors faster. Dual 10Gbps fiber optics link directly from the ISP to your server, which creates an instantaneous connection. All-SSD servers are 20X faster than the traditional HDDs many of our competitors still use. Triple-tier server-level caching "pre-loads" your files to avoid disk reads, making your site load faster. Max Speed Zones give you ultimate choice in site speed. All of these technical enhancements really do one single thing - make your websites load as fast as possible.

I contacted InMotion Hosting about setting up an account. I accessed the chat function to get answers to some questions I had and was put in contact with Patrick O. He answered all my questions, informed me of a discount that was even larger than I originally thought I would get and in general was extremely helpful to me. If all of your sales people are like him and if your tech support people are also like him then I can see why you have received some great reviews from people. It was a refreshing change from my previous hosting company."
