InMotion Hosting HostGator

Free Domain Reseller Account (eNom)

InMotion Hosting has partnered with eNom to provide our Resellers with the most robust choice of TLDs for your Reseller Hosting clients. Offer the standard .com, .net, & .org, or offer your clients gTLD’s like .news, .sale, and even .ninja! eNom started in 1997 and is one of the most trusted domain name registrars on the web. HostGator offers free domain reseller accounts as well, but with another partner.

Free Dedicated IP

All Reseller accounts include one free IP address that you can use for all your client accounts. This helps separate you from the shared server and allows your white-label business as a reseller host to operate independently. HostGator does not offer a dedicated IP for their resellers.

Free Solid-State Drives (SSDs)

InMotion Reseller Hosting includes free Solid-State Drives (SSD) that offer higher performance than standard spinning hard disk drives. During our internal benchmark test, we found SSD to be about 20 times faster than our SAS 15K drives. Our SSDs also include RAID 6 capabilities - a higher level of protection against data loss. With this level of performance, your content gets delivered to your visitors quicker. HostGator does not offer SSDs with their Reseller hosting.

24/7/365 U.S. Based Support

Our support center is 100% based in the U.S. Every single support member is a part of the InMotion Hosting company, and is extensively trained to know our Reseller product inside-and-out. This localized customer-centric support allows us to provide better efficiency and customer experience.

Free Domain

We offer a FREE domain with all Reseller Hosting plans. If you don’t want to purchase one during checkout, we’ll give you a free domain credit to use at a later time for all of the major TLDs including .com, .org, .net, .us, .biz or .info. HostGator charges for domains on all standard Reseller Hosting plans.

Unlimited Websites

Host as many websites as you’d like with your Reseller Hosting account. Your profits as a reseller host are only limited by the amount of clients you choose to have. With InMotion Hosting, you can have an unlimited amount!

Free WHMCS on All Accounts

WHMCS is an incredible, one-stop hosting solution for resellers that handles things like billing and support ticket requests. It is compatible with the major payment gateways such as Google Checkout, PayPal, Authorize.Net, and includes many features such as the ability to charge your clients monthly, accept various currencies, create invoices, and create promotions.

Free Softaculous for 1-Click Application Installs

We know how much of a pain manually installing applications can be. That’s why all InMotion Reseller Hosting plans come with our 1-Click Application Installer, Softaculous, free of cost to our customers. Get instant access to some of the biggest applications on the web such as WordPress, Drupal, e-commerce apps like PrestaShop, and 400+ more. HostGator uses QUICKINSTALL - which offers less scripts. Softaculous is an industry leading script installer that InMotion Hosting is proud to work with.

Free cPanel Transfers

We are the #1 host that websites transfer to! We give our 100% effort to make transfers seamless and painless. You receive 30 free cPanel to cPanel transfers to get your websites migrated. Transfers have to be requested within the first 30 days after purchasing your hosting plan. There are some limitations including cPanel account size. Please check with our Sales Department for more information.

Free cPanel License

InMotion Hosting provides a FREE cPanel license on all Reseller Hosting plans - where managing your business is easier than ever! Upgrading/downgrading customer accounts, creating custom packages for customer type, and creating customer emails are just a few of the many features of cPanel Reseller Hosting. Take advantage of all there is to offer with any one of our Reseller Hosting plans.

Free Backups

Data backups that are frequently done are very important for retaining your business-critical web information in the event of data loss. InMotion Hosting offers FREE data backups (up to 10 GB) every 24-36 hours whereas HostGator backs up their data once a week.

Every 24-36 Hours

Once Per Week

Here’s an infographic (the first in the industry) that provides you a quick snapshot of "What is Reseller Hosting?" along with some key terms you need to know.

Launch Assist

You receive up to 2 Free Hours with our Managed Hosting Team to get your websites migrated and to help with any advanced technical needs. Our Launch Assist will help get your Reseller Hosting account set up with all the appropriate scripts, transfer your cPanels, give you peace of mind and allow you to concentrate on running your business.

White-Label Business

Building your own brand for your independent web-hosting company has never been easier with InMotion Hosting’s white-labeling option. Coupled with the free dedicated IP that we provide for our resellers, you can operate as an independent web hosting company. White Labeling is an important feature when marketing your services to your future patrons.

Support for Multiple PHP 5 versions

You can use any combination of older PHP versions in any directory on the account. When using different software on one account, you may need to use an older version of PHP while running a newer version of PHP on a different domain. You may, for example, have PHP 5.4 for the site in public_html and then use PHP 5.2 in a subdirectory. At InMotion Hosting we know our customers aren’t all operating their systems equally- that’s why we offer this service - HostGator does not.

IMAP - Secure Email

Access your emails anytime from any device! Unlike POP, we offer IMAP email, which lets you and your customers access email from any device, including laptops, home computers, smartphones, or tablets.

Once again, InMotion Hosting has earned my appreciation and business. As you know, there is a lot of competition out there for web hosting and domain name registration. Time and again I use InMotion Hosting because the level of professionalism, ease to reach an English speaking, American support individual combined with easy to understand, transparent and reasonable fees cannot be beat. Not anywhere. InMotion is always easy to reach for any reason, and tech support when needed is 100% American, competent and responsive. Matt in your sales division was awesome as expected, and I’m on my way to starting our company’s newest website."
