    SSD Hosting is servers that have SSD drives instead of traditional hard disks. But in the Webhosting industry, 95% of the time you won't even notice whether your server uses an SSD or not.

    GlowHost provides servers with SSD drives for people who request them, but most of our customers prefer HDDs due to their lower cost and considerably larger disk space they provide.

    SSD drives may be good for I/O (input / output) intensive applications, like servers with huge databases or media servers, but
    I'd say they are truly good for laptops which are shoved into their bags indiscriminately, since they have better durability and no moving parts that can damage the disks, While servers are not often moved from place to place. At the same time, SSD drives also break, they are not 100% reliable.

    As for the best webhosting provider, the choice is obvious, it is GlowHost of course!

    Just try our services and you will see that it is true. With our 91 day industry leading money back guarantee, under 20 minute response time and industry leading service levels, you can be assured GlowHost is the right choice.

    It is not correct compare SSD and RAM, they have different purpose.

    As usual, everything depends on your needs. There is no need to pay too much for something what wouldn't be used.

    Please let us know if you have specific requirements to your sites/services and we will find best hardware.

    SSD (Solid State Drive) is the latest type of computer storage device and are now being increasingly used in the hosting industry. Traditional hard drives have limited ability to read and write data. With SSD data is read and written electronically with high speed.
