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. DreamHost does not offer a real-time redundancy for their VPS Hosting plans.

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. DreamHost does not offer cPanel licenses with any of their VPS plans, opting to instead use their own proprietary control panel.

Free Solid-State Drives (SSDs)

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. DreamHost also offers VPS Hosting plans that comes with free solid-state drives.

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. DreamHost has no money-back guarantee for VPS Hosting plans, so if you don't like your service, you're stuck.

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, including files and RAM processes. DreamHost does not offer on-demand snapshots for their managed VPS plans.

DDoS Attack Protection

All of our VPS Hosting plans utilize Corero's SmartWall® Threat Defense Systems (TDS), providing all customers with real-time defenses against volumetric distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks up to 5 Gbps. This allows your Virtual Private Server to be protected while not blocking legitimate traffic to your sites through Corero's exclusive pattern matching engine. DreamHost does not offer DDoS protection.

Unrestricted CPU Cores

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. DreamHost does not disclose the allotted CPU cores for their VPS Hosting packages.

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. DreamHost does not offer a free domain for their VPS Hosting packages.

Resource Monitoring Dashboard

Our Resource Monitoring Dashboard provides you with charts and graphs to help you to evaluate and manage your server resources, usage and allocation from within your Account Management Panel (AMP). DreamHost also offers a graphic interface for partition resource metrics of VPS Hosting plans.

Unlimited Domains, Subdomains and Email Accounts

Both InMotion Hosting and DreamHost offer unlimited domains, subdomains and email accounts for VPS Hosting packages. We do not want to restrict you from having everything you need for your site(s) and business.

I was taken aback by the conversation I had with a member of your team who promptly and oh so politely completed my account confirmation. If you noticed, I said "conversation". It wasn't a dry technical support procedure via chat, it was someone who expressed interest in my venture and allowed me to share a bit of what I hoped to accomplish with InMotion Hosting. I have been with DreamHost for over ten years. For about a year I've known it was time to find new hosting. For my situation I did not see much benefit it replacing slow DreamHost with slow BlueHost. I’m looking forward to better hosting with InMotion."
