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. GoDaddy does not offer high-availability functionality within a VPS environment.

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. GoDaddy's VPS Hosting plans do not come with solid-state drives.

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. GoDaddy does allow for 1 on-demand snapshot for their managed VPS options.

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. GoDaddy also offers DDoS attack protection with VPS Hosting plans.

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. GoDaddy has 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. GoDaddy charges for domains on all standard VPS Hosting plans.

Employee-Owned

InMotion Hosting is employee-owned and operated. Being an independent organization, we can focus beyond just the bottom line. Our core values are built around meeting customer needs and constantly enhancing their experience. Our #1 goal is to thrill you, the customer!

Free cPanel 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. GoDaddy managed VPS plans also come with cPanel license included.

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. GoDaddy currently offers a 30-day money-back guarantee for their VPS Hosting plans.

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). GoDaddy currently does not offer a graphic interface for partition resource metrics of VPS Hosting plans.

Unlimited Domains, Subdomains and Email Accounts

Both InMotion Hosting and GoDaddy 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 had the pleasure today of parting with funds to your company because Patrick was such a pleasure to deal with. His manner was professional and he demonstrated the greatest level of patience walking a neophyte through the process of moving my hosting from GoDaddy to your servers. I chose to do business with InMotion on the spot becuase I was able to experience extraordinary service and support consistent with what your marketing message proclaims. In this respect, you are light years ahead of your competition and Patrick is a testament to what makes your organization stand heads and shoulders above all others."
