SSD CLOUD uses SSDs for its clients. Some of its other features that provide top-notch performance are LiteSpeed Web server and CloudLinux OS.


Overview

SSD CLOUDSSD CLOUD is based in Orlando, Florida. It’s been in business since 2013 providing hosting solutions, including shared hosting, reseller hosting, cloud servers, Virtual Private Servers (VPS), and dedicated servers. Its servers are located in Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Canada, and the United States. Its website is available in English.

Features and Ease of Use

ssdcloud features

SSD CLOUD offers three shared hosting plans with the following features:

  • 99.9% uptime
  • Free Domain
  • Three, five, or ten domains
  • Free SSL certificates
  • Anywhere from 3GB to 10GB storages

SSD CLOUD backs its uptime guarantee with its terms of service. If there’s an unplanned disruption of service (downtime), SSD CLOUD promises to issue a credit equal to the time that the service was down back to the customer. So, if the downtime lasted for two hours, the credit is equivalent to two hours of hosting. To get it, you’ll need to open a support ticket.

It offers three locations for shared hosting; the U.S., the U.K., and Singapore, serving three continents with speedy servers. These locations have 10Gig connections. Furthermore, SSD CLOUD provides (just as its name implies) Solid State Disks (SSDs) to further enhance the performance of its hosting. It utilizes multiple SSD/SAN’s to ensure high IOPs.

SSD CLOUD provides a faster alternative to Apache and Nginx, which is LiteSpeed web server. It’s said to provide the fastest PHP processing, working better overall than Apache by five times and 67% faster than Nginx.

SSD CLOUD provides redundant equipment, servers, and connections. One area – storage – is protected by RAID configuration to ensure availability and reliability even if there’s a hardware failure from one of the drives.

Furthermore, it uses CloudLinux for customers on shared hosting to partition the servers, providing light-weight virtualized areas that prevent overuse of resources and provide better security.

Pricing and Support

SSD CLOUD

Although SSD CLOUD starts out well with a fairly priced base plan, it starts to get less reasonable as you go higher up through the plans, with the top plan coming in at a rather expensive price when compared to similar plans from its competitors. Also, the introductory rates are lower priced than the renewal rates by about 30%-40%.

On the flip side, there is free website migration and free SSL certificates for your hosted domains.

There’s no free trial or plan, but the company offers a one-month subscription period. You can also pay for three or six months at a time. Furthermore, there’s a 30-day money-back guarantee. After this period, you can only get prorated refunds on annual contracts. However, a fixed “early termination fee” is taken out of the refunds. That fee is equivalent to the price of hosting on the top plan for a year, so it really means no refunds.

Customer support is available 24/7 through a knowledge base, ticketing system, phone, and email. There’s also a live chat, which I tried using, but didn’t get connected to a human – only a robot. A representative finally responded the next day.

The services included are AMAZING

I just totally Love them! Recommend SSD Cloud business hosting to thers. It is Great web host for hosting my basic websites. Their ssd hosting is super fast compared the speed I have had with my previous hosting provider. Access has been significantly faster on all the sites I host. For the cost of the shared I can host up to 5 domains on the one cPanel. Good by me.

I would recommend SSD Cloud to all webmasters

One word describes all - Excellent! (after it you can add words like - sales, price, support, uptime, speed, etc.). My only gripe is that occasionally the server will be down but they get it up pretty quick. They are great! Best thing about Host-ed.net is the Instant activation ans their tech support. The chat feature enables me to clear all my queries and doubts.

Highly recommended.

The support staff is exemplary. I ran into several issues trying to get my WordPress website put together, and the support crew was polite, expedient, and resolved the difficulties I was experiencing. You guys are awesome, so far so good, thanks for your support and high availability. Highly recommended.

Bottom line on SSD CLOUD

It can’t be denied that SSD CLOUD offers fantastic features, but the prices on some of its plans are much more expensive than what its competitors offer. If price is not an issue for you, you could go ahead and be protected with its 30-day money back guarantee. However, if price is a factor, look elsewhere to more fairly priced web hosting companies.

Pros

  • Provides SSD on RAID
  • Uses LiteSpeed web server
  • Compensation on downtime
  • CloudLinux operating system

Cons

  • Some plans are high-priced
  • Early termination fee charged for refunds

Enjoy top hosting performance with SSD CLOUD.
