- InMotion reaches new clients with a data center in Amsterdam
- Accessible on shared hosting plans, but rolling out to other products soon
InMotion has revealed a new European data center, signaling the start of its international expansion. The data center is located in Amsterdam, Netherlands – bringing speedy web hosting to the European market.
It’s currently only available for InMotion’s shared hosting plans, but other products will be added in the coming months. InMotion’s Director of Customer Success, John Joseph, said:
“We’re committed to giving our clients the most reliable and innovative hosting services. Our state-of-the-art EU data center is one example of how we are fulfilling that commitment.”
The Move to Europe
So why is InMotion’s expansion into Europe so significant? What impact does it have on your website? A hosting provider needs to deliver a fast and dependable service, and this new data center will support InMotion in its efforts to do so.
Before the reveal of its third data center, InMotion had two others located in Los Angeles and Virginia, USA. The Amsterdam location was chosen because of its access to three of the world’s largest Internet exchanges, as well as undersea cable landing stations.
Long-distance relationships between your location and your chosen data center can have a real impact on your web hosting and site performance, resulting in slow load times, page crashes, and failed downloads. It can even damage your business if customers get frustrated and leave your website before making a purchase!
Now, with InMotion’s new data center, website visitors in Europe or nearby locations will see improved website performance, with no need to rely on US-based data centers.
InMotion users will have access to:
- NVMe hardware
- 99.99% network uptime
- Security monitoring
- Free SSL certificates
- Premium malware and hack protection
- Refined UltraStack server configurations for performance
To recap, InMotion’s four shared hosting plans are currently available in the freshly-built European data center. For a 12-month contract, plans start at $3.49 per month. If you already have a shared hosting plan with InMotion, the new data center will be automatically available to select.
And, in the next few months, InMotion’s remaining product catalog will be introduced.
