Frequently Asked Questions
What is Shared Hosting?
Shared Hosting is an entry-level web hosting product that is both the most popular and the least expensive, 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 its resources, including storage, bandwidth and disk space. With Shared Hosting, the web host is responsible for all of the server maintenance and upkeep. All of InMotion Hosting’s Business Hosting plans are Shared Hosting plans.
What kind of hosting product is best for me?
If you are new to web hosting or are creating a site with low to moderate amounts of traffic, Shared Hosting is likely the best option for you. It is the most affordable web hosting you can buy and will likely have more than enough resources for your site(s) to run quickly and efficiently. As your site grows and you experience increases in traffic and usage, it may be time to move up to Virtual Private Server Hosting, where you are given your own partition of a dedicated server. Finally, if you have a resource-intensive application or a site with a very high amount of traffic, you have the option of upgrading to your own Dedicated Server, which provides you with all of the server’s resources and allows you to configure it any way you see fit.
I’m new to web development. How can I create my website?
InMotion Hosting makes it easy for new web developers to get their sites up and off the ground. All of our Business Hosting plans come with Softaculous, an application installer that will allow you to download over 400 applications to help you with your website. These applications include, but are not limited to, Content Management Systems (CMS) such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, Online Marketplaces such as Prestashop, Magento and OpenCart, and many others. Shared Hosting is a perfect environment to develop and hone your programming skills and provides a number of tools for novices.
I already have a website with another host. Can I transfer my website?
Yes. InMotion offers free website transfers to make sure your site is moved to our servers without any downtime and without losing any of your important data. This applies to website transfers that consist of 3 or fewer cPanel accounts, databases and/or websites. If you have more than 3 accounts, websites or databases, we can still transfer your site over for $10/item transferred. You can also transfer your website yourself, and if you need help we have an extensive Support Center to help walk you through the process.
How many websites can I host with my Shared Hosting plan?
The number of websites you can host with one account depends on the Business Hosting plan you select. For Launch plans, you will be allotted 2 websites for your account. For Power plans, you can have up to 6 websites. With our Pro plan, you can host an unlimited number of websites. No hidden fees or surprise charges, just multiple websites for one low price.
What’s next after purchasing a Shared Hosting plan?
