Let’s start with what you’re probably currently using, HDD drive hosting.
What is HDD Hosting?
The acronym HDD stands for Hard Disk Drive. HHD is a traditional hard drive just like most computers have. If your computer is a few years old, it probably has an HDD drive in it. An HDD drive is constantly spinning and is not very reliable. If your computer has ever crashed, you know what I mean. HDD is old technology but is cheaper and you can get a lot of disk space very cheap. Most Hosting companies are still using HDD technology. If your website doesn’t have much on it in the way of graphics and features, or it doesn’t get much traffic, HDD will probably work fine for you.
What is SSD Hosting?
SSD stands for Solid State Drive. Unlike the old HDD, an SSD drive stores data on microchips. Because it has no moving parts, an SSD has virtually no delays in serving up requests from your website. This means your website will load and run much faster than it does on the old SSD Hosting. Solid State Drive Hosting is at least 5 times faster times faster than Hard Disk Drive hosting and much more stable.
If your website requires a fast response time and high performance, you should probably go for an SSD hosting plan. In other words, if you’re running a busy website you should probably opt for an SSD Hosting service.
