What is the Difference Between HDD and SSD ?

  • Solid-state drives (SSDs) are the most common storage drives today.
  • SSDs are smaller and faster than hard disk drives (HDDs).
  • SSDs are noiseless and allow PCs to be thinner and more lightweight.
  • Hard disk drives (HDDs) are more common in older devices.
  • If you primarily use your PC for web browsing and light work, you may not need as much storage space.
  • If you work with large videos or files, you may want more storage.
  • If you use OneDrive or another cloud storage service for photos and files, you may need less storage on your device.

HDD (Hard Disk Drive) and SSD (Solid State Drive) are both types of storage devices used in computers, but they have several key differences in terms of their technology, performance, and characteristics:

  1. Technology:
    • HDD: HDDs use magnetic storage technology. They consist of one or more spinning disks (platters) coated with a magnetic material. Data is stored on these platters in the form of magnetic patterns, and read/write heads access the data as the disks spin.
    • SSD: SSDs use NAND-based flash memory to store data. They have no moving parts, and data is stored in memory cells. This lack of mechanical components makes SSDs more resistant to physical shocks and faster than HDDs.
  2. Speed:
    • HDD: HDDs are relatively slower compared to SSDs. The speed at which data can be read or written is limited by the spinning disks and mechanical read/write heads.
    • SSD: SSDs are much faster than HDDs. They offer faster data access times and transfer speeds because there are no physical components that need to move.
  3. Durability and Reliability:
    • HDD: HDDs are more susceptible to physical damage due to their moving parts. They can be sensitive to shocks, drops, and vibrations.
    • SSD: SSDs are more durable because they have no moving parts. They are better equipped to handle physical shocks and are less prone to mechanical failure.
  4. Noise and Power Consumption:
    • HDD: HDDs can generate noise due to the spinning of the disks and movement of the read/write heads. They also tend to consume more power.
    • SSD: SSDs are silent since they have no moving parts. They also generally consume less power compared to HDDs.
  5. Size and Weight:
    • HDD: HDDs are usually larger and heavier due to the mechanical components required for operation.
    • SSD: SSDs are smaller and lighter as they do not require spinning disks or mechanical components.
  6. Cost:
    • HDD: HDDs are generally less expensive per unit of storage compared to SSDs.
    • SSD: SSDs are more expensive, but prices have been decreasing over time as the technology becomes more widespread.

In summary, SSDs offer faster performance, better durability, and energy efficiency compared to HDDs, but they are typically more expensive on a per-gigabyte basis. HDDs are still widely used for large-scale storage needs where cost is a primary consideration, while SSDs are preferred for tasks that demand speed, such as operating system installations and applications that require quick data access.

Our servers (both VPS and dedicated) come in three flavors, depending on the support and features you need: Self Managed Servers are for the pros among us who want as much control as possible. These are great if you’re comfortable with shell prompts and are a seasoned administrator. Managed Servers were created with most customers in mind. They offer the power of a server, as well as the ease of managing your server through a control panel. However, it’s still significantly more complicated than something like a WYSIWYG program like Website Builder. Fully Managed Servers give PowerHoster the responsibility of managing and maintaining your server. You’re still responsible for the sites you want to host on the server, but we take care of pretty much everything else.

Feature Definitions

Get hip to our lingo…(that’s what the kids say these days, right?)


When security vulnerabilities are patched, it’s important to get them on your server as soon as possible. Using automatic patching, your server leverages the patching tools available through its operating system or control panel to update potentially problematic elements quickly.

Root Access

To install software on your server through the command line or other administrator-level tasks, you’ll probably need root access. Unless you’re familiar with controlling your server via command line, we don’t recommend using it though; it’s much easier to break your server using the power root access gives you than it is to use the same privileges to fix it.

Control Panels

Manging your server can much more straightforward with a control panel, which creates a user interface to complete administrator-level tasks like creating FTP users and adding websites to your server. Without a control panel, you can only manage your server via command line.

Backups: On-Demand

You’ve seen those warnings where we say, “We recommend backing up your server before making these changes.” This is that backup. Create one backup and restore your server to it if things don’t work out like you anticipated.

Backups: Disaster Recovery

If your server suffers severe breakage, we often have a backup of your server. These restores are available for a fee by contacting customer support.

 Warning:We do not guarantee that we will have a Disaster Recovery backup of your server. We make a best effort to keep these available, but you cannot rely on this backup’s availability.

SSH Access

Pros who use servers often find that rather than dealing with a GUI, it’s quicker and easier for them to just issue commands to the server themselves; SSH is the means by which they can do that.

Application Manager

Installing applications like WordPress or Drupal grows increasingly tedious the more often you do it. With an application manager, you’ll have a vast library of apps from which to choose, as well as the tools for features like automatic updates and relocating the application on your server.

Migrations from Shared Hosting

Upgrading from shared hosting to a server has a lot of benefits, but if you were apprehensive about moving your site, our migration tool makes it really easy. With nothing more than a few clicks, we sweep your old shared hosting account up into your server and set everything up for you. Right now, this feature is available only for cPanel/Linux accounts, but we will add the features for Plesk soon.

Expert Services (ES)

Much like contracting out your home remodeling efforts, our server admins are available to spruce up/patch/overhaul components of your server. We have the entire list available in our Hosting Services Menu.


There are two primary elements we monitor:

  • Our network, to ensure it stays healthy and happy, successfully routing your server’s visitors to it.
  • Your server’s container, which uses NodePing and other technologies to make sure your server’s successfully responding to requests.

Each of our server support tiers offers a different monitoring system: Self Managed/Good only includes network monitoring to make sure you’re not getting DDoSed. Managed/Better includes network and container monitoring so you’ll know if your server ever went down. Fully Managed/Best includes network and container monitoring, as well as a team of server professionals that will address any issues your monitoring reports.

Seamless Upgrades

If you find that you need a more powerful server, we offer in-place upgrades that require no work on your end.

Support: Chat

Why you Should Choose Plesk Window Dedicated Servers ?

When using a window dedicated server, you will be given complete control over your server resources.

So you can decide how your website will run while monitoring the server. This puts you in charge and you can conveniently manage the set-up, system operations and software packages all by yourself.

An arrangement of this kind is usually suited for websites that command a lot of visitors. Window dedicated server is also suitable for hosting websites that contain sensitive contents and for secure e-commerce applications.

Why Should I Choose a Window Server ?

Choosing a Windows Server for hosting depends on various factors, including the specific requirements of your website or application. Here are some reasons why you might choose a Windows Server:

  1. ASP.NET and .NET Framework Compatibility:

    • If your website or web application is built using Microsoft technologies such as ASP.NET or relies on the .NET Framework, a Windows Server is a natural choice. Windows Servers are optimized to run applications developed using Microsoft’s technologies.
  2. Microsoft SQL Server:

    • If your application uses Microsoft SQL Server as the database management system, a Windows Server is often recommended for seamless integration. Windows Servers are well-suited for hosting databases that use SQL Server.
  3. Classic ASP Compatibility:

    • If you have legacy applications built with Classic ASP (Active Server Pages), which is a Microsoft server-side scripting language, Windows Server is the preferred platform for hosting such applications.
  4. Windows-specific Technologies:

    • Some technologies and features are specific to the Windows environment, and if your application relies on these, choosing a Windows Server is necessary. Examples include Microsoft Exchange for email services, SharePoint for collaboration, and others.
  5. MS Office Integration:

    • If your website or application needs to integrate closely with Microsoft Office products, a Windows Server can provide better integration and compatibility.
  6. Remote Desktop Services (RDS):

    • If you require remote desktop access and want to implement Remote Desktop Services for centralized application deployment and management, Windows Server is the ideal choice.
  7. Familiar Interface for Windows Users:

    • If your development team or administrators are more familiar with the Windows operating system, using a Windows Server can simplify system management tasks and troubleshooting.
  8. Support for .exe and Windows Services:

    • Some applications are designed to run as standalone executable (.exe) files or Windows services. Windows Servers are well-suited for hosting and managing such applications.
  9. Active Directory Integration:

    • If your organization relies on Active Directory for user authentication and directory services, Windows Servers seamlessly integrate with Active Directory, providing a unified environment for user management.
  10. Commercial Control Panels:

    • Some commercial control panels and management tools are designed specifically for Windows Server environments, offering a user-friendly interface for server management.

It’s important to note that the choice between Windows and Linux servers depends on the specific requirements of your application. While Windows Servers are a good fit for applications developed within the Microsoft ecosystem, Linux servers are often preferred for open-source technologies and certain web development stacks. Consider the technologies your application relies on and your team’s expertise when making a decision about the hosting platform.
