When deciding which reseller hosting plan is right for you, it can be difficult to determine which features are most important and the differences between different hosting providers. The two most important features are storage space and bandwidth, and these specifications vary between different hosting plans and hosting providers. In this article, we will compare the specifications of InMotion Hosting’s reseller hosting plans with HostGator’s plans.
Compare hosting plans
To help you better understand how InMotion Hosting’s Reseller Hosting compares to HostGator Reseller Hosting, here’s a comparison:
|R-1000S||100 GB SSD||800 GB||Aluminum||60 GB SSD||600 GB|
|R-2000S||160 GB SSD||1200 GB||copper||90 GB SSD||900 GB|
|R-3000S||200 GB SSD||1600 GB||silver||140 GB SSD||1400 GB|
|Reseller VPS||125 GB SSD, 7 GB RAM||unlimited|
As you can see from the comparison chart above, InMotion Hosting reseller servers have more storage than their HostGator equivalents. More storage space means more users, more websites and more email. If you want to scale your business over time, starting with a large amount of storage can help you avoid migrating to a new server later.
As websites become more complex and high-resolution images more common, having extra storage space never hurts. For example, if your customers run websites with photo galleries and high-resolution logos, you’ll likely need to provide them with more storage space than websites that are primarily text-based.
In addition to more memory, InMotion Hosting’s servers also provide faster speeds. Bandwidth is the speed of data transfer between your server and the Internet and essentially determines the amount of Internet traffic your server can handle. The more speed your server has, the more traffic your server can handle. Having a larger amount of bandwidth can ensure that your customers never experience performance degradation or downtime due to insufficient bandwidth. Just like with storage space, more bandwidth means your business has more room to grow.
