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. HostGator 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. HostGator’s VPS Hosting plans do not come with solid-state drives.

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. HostGator currently charges $10/month for a cPanel license for VPS plans.

$10/mo

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. HostGator does not include snapshot functionality with their VPS Hosting 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. HostGator 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. HostGator 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. HostGator 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!

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.

Just wanted to rave about Patrick who helped me out today. I’ve spoken with lots of other web hosts, HostGator, BlueHost, DreamHost, etc... No one was as competent as he was. In a timely and friendly manner, he was able to answer all my questions and help me assess the best hosting package for my needs. I am exceptionally pleased and will be going with your hosting company because of his great expertise. Just saying, that’s how you do Customer Service and Sales right!"
