About VPS Web Hosting

Not all VPS hosting providers are created equal. A good company will deliver a platform that makes managing your virtual environment a breeze, and more importantly, ensure that you stay up and running. Specifically, a solid VPS host will constantly monitor each account to solve problems immediately, before they impact your website negatively. This is what the best VPS hosting providers are made of.
There are three things that drive VPS hosting performance: hardware, number of virtual private servers on the hardware, and the resources each VPS gets. InMotion uses Dell servers with 16GB or 32GB of RAM, 2 high end Quad Core Xeon Processors and most importantly, 15K SAS hard drives. We wish they would release the number of VPS they put on a server, but they probably don't want their competitors to know. They do say it is tied to actual performance of the individual VPS and the types of packages that are on the hardware (they offer three). It would be good to know this, but their customer feedback often talks specifically about how fast the service is.

Their uptime is excellent, and we believe this is probably for a few reasons. Their servers are really high end with redundant power supplies and RAID10. This means that failed electronic components (like a hard drive) won't matter, your VPS will continue to run. Also, Inmotion uses BGP4 bandwidth to help protect from problems with routing on the Internet. They also do a lot of "peering" with really big ISPs to help keep the routes short and fast. Last, InMotion allows for bursting of usage by your VPS, meaning that when your VPS gets a spike in traffic, it stays up and does not shut your site down.

Ease of Use
A virtual private server is basically your own computer. Many hosts will have a limited setup and you will need to configure the vps to support a web site. One of the nicest things is Inmotion's VPS hosting comes with all the software you will need to use your email and run your website. When you get your vps they will have preloaded Cpanel, setup your firewall, and configured your first account. Inmotion will even configure different versions of PHP and MySQL if you want. Just upload your web site, change your DNS and you are done. To someone who is busy or not that technical, this is really important.

The price is very good, especially considering a full Cpanel license ($425/yr value!) is included. There is no setup fee like some other hosts and they have a 30 or 90 day money back guarantee.

Technical Support
VPS technology is still quite new, but Inmotion Hosting has been providing VPS hosting for over 6 years. They have great technical support that really understands how virtual private servers work. A lot of customer feedback is really positive about Inmotion's technical support.
