Shared hosting is Web hosting in which the service provider serves pages for multiple Web sites, each having its own Internet domain name, from a single Web server. … Although shared hosting is a less expensive way for businesses to create a Web presence, it is usually not sufficient for Web sites with high traffic.
Magnetic servers are old mechanical technology using spinning hard drives. Modern Solid State Drives (SSD) have no moving parts. An SSD is a type of mass storage device similar to a hard disk drive (HDD). Hosts claim SSDs are faster because they have faster access times. From our testing, that is theoretical improvement. We’ve never seen any real-world benefit. So paying more for SSD has no apparent advantage over cheaper magnetic technology.
The advantages for the host company are many including reducing cooling expenses and space and technical service time. They benefit. But should you pay more for SSD hosting?
We don’t usually recommend or prefer any hosting service. Because they fluctuate depending upon how well or bad their business is doing. It’s cyclical.
We use the two hosts with the most disrespected and low credibility for quality. Those are BlueHost and GoDaddy. They are the most hated hosts. They’re not a problem for us because of the way we build speed sites.
If you use original optimization as taught on PagePipe, about any host can get good-enough speed.
For clients who have money to burn, we recommend Pressidium hosting. But you can achieve the same speed results applying your brain and creativity – and cheap, shared hosting.
Remember, all hosts fluctuate from good to bad speed at some time. Our advice is don’t throw money at the problem. Build your site using origin optimization instead.
