SSD Hosting & All the Features You Need
Our SSD Shared Hosting has everything you need to succeed online. SSH access, more coding languages available to you, and the ability to install almost any open source application.
SSD Hosting for Database Driven Applications
Running a large blog, eCommerce store, or custom application requires a lot of database input and output (I/O). As your site gets more popular and traffic starts to grow, your hard drives will start getting more and more concurrent I/O requests. During peak viewing times, the amount of I/O requests can slow down the recall of information from your database. This is especially true for sites on traditional “spinning media” disk drives. The physical limitations of spinning hard disks and the mechanical head restricts the amount of information that can be requested at a given time.
This is where our SSD Hosting is superior. With a lack of moving parts, data transfer is only restricted by the speed of the network (which is why our shared servers are already on blazingly fast 1Gbps networks). We’ve benchmarked our SSDs against mechanical hard disks and, as expected, SSDs massively out perform hard disk drives on I/O transfer.
In the benchmark test to the left, we tested our already fast SAS 15K drives against 1TB Samsung solid-state drives during busy I/O periods. The result, SSDs pushed out 95% more data than these hard disk drives!
Are you tired of slow loading times and sluggish performance from your web hosting provider? It’s time to switch to SSD web hosting.
With SSD servers, you won’t have to worry about the rotational latency or seek time that plagues traditional HDD hosting. You’ll experience lightning-fast data retrieval and seamless performance, even under heavy network load.
We’ve conducted benchmark testing to showcase the dramatic difference in latency between our SSD hosting servers and a server with hard disk drives. The results speak for themselves – with hard disk drives taking up to 20 times longer to access data during periods of high I/O requests.
Make the switch to SSD hosting and enjoy the benefits of faster website loading times, improved user experience, and seamless performance – all at an affordable price.
InMotion Hosting Shared SSD Servers
Unlike other hosting companies, InMotion Hosting uses solid-state drives to host all types of data. This means you can host your personal website on one domain, your friend’s static website on another, and your client’s eCommerce site – all from the same hosting account. There are no restrictions with how you can use our SSD Hosting.
- Dynamic Content Management Systems (WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, etc.)
- eCommerce Stores (WooCommerce, Magento, PrestaShop, etc.)
- Custom-Built Websites & Applications
- Static HTML Websites
Data Loss Prevention
Our SSD Hosting servers utilize RAID cards with battery-backed non-volatile caching. This means that in the event of sudden power loss, any data yet to be written will be stored in cache until the server is brought back to normal operation. Inbound data will then be written and stored as if nothing happened.
We’ve also taken measures to ensure zero impact on our customers from any SSD failures that might occur. Our solid-state drives are placed in RAID-6 configuration with extra backup drives to ensure data integrity throughout our SSD hosting servers.

SSD Hosting FAQs
What is a solid-state drive or SSD?
For years, servers have used the standard HDD, or Hard Disk Drives, for storage. These rely on physical spinning platters or disks with moving mechanical parts. However, the physical magnetic heads of an HDD need to seek back and forth over the platters to gather all your data, which can slow things down.
This is where our SSD hosting is superior. An SSD server utilizes integrated flash memory to read data much faster than a standard HDD. With no physical moving parts to slow down the data retrieval process, an SSD is the perfect hard drive to run your business.
What is SSD web hosting?
When users visit your website, to provide a good user experience, the server hosting your website must read data from the hard drive and quickly present your website. Unlike HDD web hosting, which uses physical parts to gather data and serve your website to end-users, SSD web hosting removes physical part obstacles and can read and serve your website much faster.
What is the difference between SSD and HDD?
Standard HDDs are the traditional technology for retrieving data and serving your website to users. However, new SSDs allow for 20x faster data retrieval by removing the need for physical spinning disks, allowing your users to view your site faster.
How much faster is SSD than HDD?
Yes, our SSD hosting is much faster than HDD hosting. An SSD can be about 20 times faster than a standard HDD when a server is busy with I/O requests. When a server is busy with I/O requests, a standard HDD might only push through about 5% as much data as an SSD. When a server is not busy with I/O requests, a typical HDD can only push through about 35% of data as an SSD.
Is an SSD worth it?
Yes, an SSD is worth the added speed and positive user experience your website will present to users. Here are some additional benefits of SSD hosting:
Improved Performance – Faster read/write speeds allow your website to load faster.
Improved Uptime – Even during peak usage times, backed up I/O requests can be served quickly with SSD hosting.
Lower Power Needs – With no moving parts, SSDs can save a lot of power compared to a standard HDD.
