• SSD-rates on hosting

    • views 1115

    Can you please tell me what the real benefit of placing my site on the ssd-drive? I understand that the SSD should work faster than HDD, but if sites are loading in less than a second, then why should I pay for the acceleration I don`t even notice? Or am I wrong?

    Usually the highest boost in performance from using SSD drives on hosting is seen on sites with a relatively large database (large forums information portals, etc.). Depending on other circumstances, when you install SSD rather than traditional hard drives, the site download time is reduced from 10% to 60%. On websites using CMS but containing a small number of pages and information due to the installation of SSD drives, the site loading time may be reduced by 1% to 40%. On download speed of static sites as well as on the speed of static content returns, using SSD drives has almost no effect.

    When we introduced the SSD technology, we published a news article in which we at least briefly and clearly described what the advantages are of these drives. I think all the answers you need are here) https://sweb.ru/news/419/
    Hi! The gain in speed will be seen if your site works closely with the disk subsystem. For example, it is a big database with a large number of operations. Or you have a file archive, video site, etc. If you don`t have a load like this, or you are using a different type of cache, for example, stored in the memory - then you hardly notice the difference.
    The main advantage of SSD is the increase of write/read data speed from the disk. For resources loaded on the disc, it is a very important indicator. For static sites, in fact, the PING parameter has a greater impact on the download speed to the server, and the speed of the Web-server response.
    Using the SSD-drives helps increase the read/write speed (IOPS), that`s an obvious fact, but not always visible for the end user. But we have to take into account that as part of a shared hosting service, many clients are hosted on a server and the disk system on SSD-drives copes with it just fine. And the fact that your site loads in less than a second means that your project doesn`t use large amounts of data (databases).
    On the SSD disk read/write is faster. If your project only has one page, it will be loaded on any drive in under a second. If you need it for sites with a large amount of data it will be loaded via FTP quickly, but it depends on the person.
    SSD is required for applications which actively work with the disk system, when performance of the whole system rests on HDD speed. In other cases, it isn`t necessary, you just don`t notice the difference in speed. For shared hosting services, ssd is clearly not necessary. But for VDS, it can be useful, as in the above-described case.
    Today hosting companies don`t force clients to pay for the fact that they are placed on the SSD-drives, because it is the standard. All decent hosting providers use SSD.
We do our best for you!

Ratings of hosting providers by site tasks
Hosting price

We highly recommend not to purchase the cheapest hosting package. Usually, they come with a row of issues: the server is often down, the hardware is outdated, lousy and slow support, registration and payment errors, etc.

For your convenience, we have created a tool that can help you to choose the right hosting package for you just by answering a few simple questions.


CMS is a content management system. A lot of hosting providers offer so-called CMS optimized packages. However, this is a marketing trick because most CMSs do not have special software or hosting requirements.

Free trial

Trial period is a period of time, usually from 7 to 30 days, during which you can use the hosting services for free to test them.

Moneyback policy allows the customer to receive a refund for his order within a certain period after the purchase.


OS means the operating system is installed on the server. We recommend to choose Linux hosting unless your website requires another OS.


Bulletproof hosting - it’s a type of service that allows to host almost any type of content, even the restricted one (adult content, warez, spam etc). Bulletproof hosting providers do not remove your content in case someone reports an abuse.

Unlimited hosting - refers to companies that provide packages with unlimited disk space, bandwidth, number of domains, databases or email accounts, etc. This is usually a marketing trick but sometimes you can find something worth a try.

Secure hosting - it’s a type of service when the hosting provider is mostly responsible for the security of the user’s account: updates the software installed on their servers, provides an antivirus and malware scanner, firewalls and basic anti-DDoS protection, etc.

DDoS-protected hosting - companies that provide packages that include anti-DDoS protection. These packages are considerably more expensive than regular ones. Nevertheless, they’re totally worth their price because the company will ensure that your website is secured from cyber attacks.


Most websites require MySQL and PHP installed on the server to work correctly. Almost all hosting providers support these technologies.

ASP.NET is a Microsoft web application development platform.

Control panel

The more comfortable the control panel is, the easier will it be for you to change the website and hosting account settings.

Most hosting providers that are in TOP20 in our rating offer user-friendly control panels, such as cPanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin. That’s why we recommend to pay attention to other, more important parameters, while choosing a hosting provider.
