Web hosting companies will host your website files on a server hard drive. Most web hosts will use standard Hard drive (similar to your home PC). However, certain top tier web hosts are now offering a new generation of Hard drives called Solid state drives (SSD) drives. While HDDs use spinning platters with a read/write head on a mechanical arm to record data, SSDs on the other hand use flash memory. SSDs primary speed advantage stems from them containing no moving parts so read and write times are greatly improved.
Faster Speed – Speed is the most important advantage of SSD Hosting. websites via SSDs can be up to 300% faster page loads than sites hosted on an HDD.
Improved Reliability – As SSDs are more efficient in how it handles read/write operations, SSDs are more capable of handling peak use times. SSDs are also more durable because they do not have moving parts so SSDs wear slower than HDDs.
Green – SSD use less power than traditional HDDS.
Testing shows SSD server drives outperformance standard HD drives by up to 250%.
The benefits of SSD web hosting will go through every aspect of your website – file access, database queries, & usability. That’s why choosing our SSD Server Hosting is so important. Therefore, we recommend join/switching to a web host with SSD server hard drives.
