Unsatisfied with the speed of your website? Opt for SSD hosting for a 300% faster web hosting speed compared to standard HDD hosting.

So what is SSD hosting, how does it differ from HDD and why is it so much faster?

A HDD (hard disk drive) is the standard drive most commonly used for web hosting. It is made up of electromechanical spinning components which store data permanently. However, the spinning mechanism that makes up a HDD results in a delay when loading a website as the motion and retrieval of the relevant information is not instant, but rather takes a little time.

A SSD (solid state drive), on the other hand, is made up of flash memory chips able to store data even in the absence of power and it has no moving components. Therefore no mechanical movement is necessary when retrieving data resulting in a much faster speed for your website.


It's very important to remember that speed is also a ranking factor when it comes to SEO (search engine optimisation); a faster website will rank higher in search results, helping to give you an edge over your competitors.

Improved speed isn't the only benefit of SSD hosting though. Traditional HHD hosting is susceptible to undesired loss of website data as the drives are highly sensitive meaning that permanent loss of, and damage to data can occur from even the slightest mishandling. But SSDs, as previously mentioned, have no moving components and thus are much less sensitive and less prone to tear and wear. In the event of an earthquake or dropping your laptop, SSD hosting is much more likely to preserve and protect your data.

Furthermore, the lack of moving components means that data is much less likely to be skipped during encryption and decryption meaning every piece of website data is displayed and the full website remains constantly online.

So what's the catch? SSD hosting is more costly; you get less storage for the same price. However, the difference isn't huge and the storage offered is still sufficient for most businesses. You get 2/3 the amount of storage for over 300% of the speed so it is definitely worthwhile investigating.
