What is Shared Hosting?

Shared Hosting is a popular, inexpensive, entry-level web hosting product, often attractive for small and medium businesses, blogs, portfolios, and websites with moderate amounts of traffic. With Shared Hosting multiple websites share a large server and resources, including storage, bandwidth, and disk space. With Shared Hosting, the web host is responsible for all server maintenance and upkeep.

Why should I start with Shared Hosting?

Shared Hosting is a great, cheap option when you’re just starting out. In the initial stages of launching a web presence, or refreshing what you have, until your website builds momentum, opting for the lowest priced option is a smart business decision. If you do not need specific software or configurations then Shared Hosting is perfect for you.

What is PHP-FPM?

PHP-FPM is one of the newest PHP handlers that are available. Moving from SuPHP to PHP-FPM will decrease your sites load time as well as the system resource usage. This happens by enabling caching and serving from memory static PHP that is not going to change or cause changes on your site. It is built off of the PHP FastCGI Handler and is designed for speed, privacy, and performance. By utilizing PHP-FPM rather than the old suPHP handler it allows us to lower resource utilization and decrease load time by caching the underlying PHP code, which seldom changes.

How many websites can I host with my Shared Hosting plan?

The number of websites you can host with one account depends on the Shared Hosting plan you select. For Launch plans, you will be allotted 2 websites for your account. For Power plans, you can have up to 50 websites. With our Pro plan, you can host 100 websites. No hidden fees or surprise charges, just multiple websites for one low price.

What is UltraStack?

UltraStack is our proprietary Operating System stack that we have optimized and set up to be the simplest and fastest web hosting experience possible. Through our team’s experience and skills, we have been able to create a stack that is customizable and suitable for almost any CMS or PHP/HTML based site.

What is NGINX Caching?

NGINX is a web server, but also a proxy server, and one of the most widely used functions of NGINX is its proxy technology. When you deploy NGINX as a reverse proxy or load balancer, you can enable powerful cache features. NGINX allows us to be able to store your whole page into memory and serve from memory rather than having to execute code each time your page is visited. This allows for a fast response since none of the underlying code needs to be executed for a particular page.

Why does InMotion Hosting use NGINX over Litespeed?

NGINX is a software that is based on the Open Source License System and we are able to use it and modify it to fit our customer’s needs without forcing our customers to purchase a license.

I already have a website with another host. Can I transfer my website?

Yes, you can transfer your website for free to your InMotion Hosting account. Your free website transfer includes up to 3 websites, databases, and/or cPanel accounts. The cost for additional website transfers is $10 per item. If you choose to transfer your website, we have a comprehensive support center.

What is Shared Hosting?

Every website on the internet is hosted on a server. This is how it becomes publicly available to users. Shared Hosting is the cheapest and most economical option for your small business needs. This plan is the least expensive option and is a great starting point for anyone starting their online business. With Shared Hosting, your site shares a physical server with other websites. Think of Shared Hosting as an apartment building. The resources are shared by all tenants; however, the overuse of resources by one tenant will also affect the rest of the tenants on the server.
