InMotion Hosting Vs SiteGround Comparison 2019

Filed Under:

Both solid web hosting companies that use SSD hard drives and include free SSL certificates. I do have to give the edge to InMotion Hosting because their SSL certificates are easier to activate and are from a better issuer. The performance with SiteGround is slightly better, but the cost is also much higher. With the exclusive 57% discount that InMotion Hosting provides for my subscribers, it's really hard to pass that deal up.


Cost: $2.95 /month




Cost: $3.95 /month

InMotion Hosting Things To Consider

If you are transferring from another web host to InMotion Hosting, the transfer process can take some time. With so many new customers signing up each day for new website hosting, the transfer queue can get backed up.

This is why I created a tutorial video on how to speed up the process by doing the majority of it yourself, fast and easy.

SiteGround Things To Consider

Your website is going to load really fast with SiteGround. Part of the way they achieve this is by placing limitations on all of the accounts on their service.

Most users will not come against these limits, but when your website does, they will be quick to notify you. Each account has a "CPU seconds per account" limitation.

If you go over the CPU seconds allocated for your account you will receive an email notice and your website will be limited if you don't address the issue, which usually means upgrading your plan.

These email notices are a lot more common then you would think. But its all based on the amount of traffic on your websites hosted with SiteGround. It's pretty reasonable for this limit, but its something to be aware of.

InMotion Hosting Coupon / Discount

InMotion Hosting offers an exclusive 50% discount just for the WPCrafter community. This is a massive discount which allows you to get started for as low as $3.95 per month.

SiteGround Coupon / Discount

Several times per year SiteGround has promotions. Usually, you won't need a SiteGround coupon in order to get this SiteGround discount on your hosting package. I am not sure how their promotions will work in the future because in June 2018 SiteGround increased their prices and also increased the upfront discount.

InMotion Hosting Review Summary

InMotion Hosting is a fantastic option for your web hosting needs. I personally have over 20 websites hosting with them and it has been a great experience.

SiteGround Review Summary

SiteGround is a solid choice for your web hosting needs. The cater to WordPress websites and offer fewer resources than their competitors, but higher reliability.

  1. Hey Adam, thanks for all your help and advice!! I’m wondering what package you have with InMotion for your 20 websites?

    I’m currently on a R2000-S reseller plan and I want to upgrade to improve performance. I think the shared hosting is killing my performance.

    I’m considering the VPS-1000 reseller plan but I don’t know if I might be better off to ditch the reseller plans and manage things myself on a WordPress Managed hosting plan like WP-5000S.

    I only have about 6-7 websites currently. One website having the most traffic is a course site using Lifter.

  2. I am in the process to buy a hosting. Have 2 in my list: inmotion and siteground.
    Based on your review I should choose inmotion hosting, however ther is big difference in price between wordpress plans between stieground and inmotion.
    So, should I choose inmotion share hosting instead wordpress plan?
    Why should I choose inmotion hosting?
    PS: I am living in the UK.

    2. Kind of personal question: which plan do you have?
