If you currently have web hosting with another provider and are looking to move to InMotion Hosting, we can assist you with your website migration! If your current host uses cPanel, we can transfer up to 30 cPanels under 5GB completely free of cost. This transfer includes websites, databases and emails. For every cPanel or database over 30, or for cPanels over 5GB in size, we have a point system, with each additional website and database equating to 1 point. Each point over the limit costs $10/point.
Speaking of storage, we've discovered that cloud hosts typically offer hard drives or solid-state drives that range between 100GB and 200GB in size. That said, you'll occasionally discover a web host that boasts unlimited storage. (Again, the usual caveats apply with regards to "unlimited" anything.) Solid-state drives are typically faster than their hard-drive-based counterparts, but are typically smaller in terms of storage capacity. If you're looking for sheer volume, a traditional hard drive is the way to go.
We use Ceph Storage which provides a 3N level of redundancy. In regards to computing, it is completely distributed without any point of failure, scalable to the exabyte level and also freely available. It also replicates data and makes it fault-tolerant, and requires no specific hardware support. Ceph is designed to be both self-healing and self-managing, thus aiming to minimize administration time and other costs.
At the end of the day, you need a reliable VPS that stays online, doesn't crash, and isn't slow. Our next generation VPS platform is highly available. We achieve this through 2X hardware duplication and 3X data replication. That means that even if something happened to your node, or even our infrastructure, we automatically switch to a backup. Spend less time fighting your web hosting company, and more time building your projects.
Interserver VPS can be deployed from the West Cost (Los Angeles, CA) or east Cost (Secaucus, NJ) datacenters. Deploying your services from a location that is closer to you will reduce latency. Low latency service is important in some platforms such as stock trading. Or deploy in both locations to build redundancy into the service you are deploying.
Due to the volume of transfer requests, you can expect a full transfer to be completed anywhere from 10-14 days, experiencing little to no downtime during the migration. If you are looking for an expedited move (for example, your site has been down for days and you need to get it moved quickly), you can purchase Managed Hosting for $40 per hour and they will help take care of the transfer process for you in a 1-2 day window. Launch Assist (2 hours with our Managed Hosting team) comes included free as a part of all 12 month VPS-2000HA-S plans and for all term lengths for VPS-3000HA-S plans.
Most dedicated hosting solutions are fixed on resource availability acting like a cap on your website growth. Our cloud-based servers free you from the limits of a bare-metal server by providing completely scalable environment allowing you to easily upgrade or downgrade your server resources to simultaneously meet your website demands, reduce cost and address temporary traffic spikes.
I've observed or been a part of buying decisions for a few thousand server customers, from small-business owners getting a website online for the first time to established platforms with tens of millions of visits every day. While each of those purchasers had different requirements and priorities for a cloud server, a few key deciding factors were consistent across those decisions:
4 The amount of aggregate outbound bandwidth across all attached network interfaces (PublicNet, ServiceNet, Cloud Networks). The maximum amount of outbound public Internet bandwidth is limited to 50% of the aggregate limit. Inbound traffic is not limited. Host networking is redundant and bandwidth is delivered over two separate bonded interfaces, each able to carry 50% of the aggregate limit. We recommend using multiple Layer 4 connections to maximize throughput.
VPS and cloud computing are not mutually exclusive options. You can host your VPS in a virtualized environment. This allows you to convert one physical server into multiple virtual machines, each of which acts like a unique physical device for running both IT resources and web applications in a flexible, instantly scalable and cost-efficient manner.
Back in the day, it was either shared or dedicated hosting. Many of the companies dependant on superior load times and in need of a lot of disk space have gone with dedicated hosting. It became their primary option. When cloud technologies started to develop, some people switched to cloud server hosting instead. Plenty of companies use cloud hosting without experiencing many problems. Dips in performance and unexpected downtimes, both fairly common in shared hosting, can be prevented here.
For a limited time, all VPS Hosting plans come with Launch Assist included free. Our Launch Assist service includes two hours of time with our team of System Administrators and is meant to help make your onboarding or transition to InMotion Hosting as painless as possible. During this time, you can request assistance with website transfers, server optimizations and configurations, security layers and much more!
Cloud hosting's use of multiple servers gives it certain advantages over traditional hosting. For example, if your website experiences a sudden traffic spike, it can pull resources from another server to prevent slow page loads or, worse, the site going down. In addition, cloud hosting makes it incredibly simple for your to scale resources up or down, as needed.
It all boils down to the amount of resources you require. If you've got a number of domains that have small numbers of pages, small load (low visitor numbers) and don't eat resources like a big ecommerce package (Magento for example), then shared or reseller plans might be all you need. When your visitor numbers, page numbers or application demands grow, it's time to move up to a VPS - either traditional SSD VPS or Cloud VPS. Speak with one of our sales reps who can help you look over what you've got, what you're trying to achieve, and put together a game plan that meets your needs and doesn't cost a fortune.
Cloud hosting truly shines in its ability to scale. Essentially you’ll have an entire network or servers to tap at a moments notice for additional storage, or to meet rising traffic needs. Also, due to the high availability of servers, you’ll have very high uptime and great performance. If a physical server failure ever occurs then your site will be switched to another server.
In each of our reviews, we devote an entire section to uptime, it's so important. Simply put, if your site is down, clients or customers will be unable to find your business or access your products or services. They may find what they're looking for elsewhere, and never return. At the very least, customers will be annoyed, and it won't help their image of your business. Neither is a good outcome.
The biggest difference between the two server environments is scale. If you’re looking to launch as quickly as possible and don’t care about scale, then a VPS server can be a great starting point. However, if you demand a flexible hosting setup and a high level of site performance and storage then it’s worth checking out a cloud hosting environment.

Increase your redundancy with VPS snapshots. We now offer two kinds of VPS snapshots: Live-State and Scheduled. While both are used to create full container backup of your Virtual Private Server as a failsafe to roll back to in case of any issues, Live-State Snapshots are meant as an on-demand feature while Scheduled Snapshots can create a snapshot up to once a day! Whether it's an operating system or programming language update/upgrade, or for something as simple as a single website edit, our snapshot features enable you to go back in time and revert your container to the exact state it was in when you took the snapshot, including technology versions, content and even live processes.
Ever wanted more CPU and processing power without the cost of buying another server? InMotion Hosting is unique in how we handle CPU Cores for our Virtual Private Servers.

Whether you only need a single core for a simple script, or multiple cores for a heavy traffic custom application, our VPS platform automatically adapts to your processing needs. This ensures that no matter what your task is, it's done quickly and efficiently.
