    SSDs have really come down in price and it's actually scalable to use SSD storage instead.

    They offer SSD, but "unlimited" not means you can use as storage drive ( like hosting big files, is unlimited for websites, Html,img,png, etc, small file's )

    Honestly,


    I dont see how companies can even offer a ton of SSD space to one client and still make a profit. SSD has came a long way since it was introduced, but I am still reluctant to put it on any server unless its ran in raid. SSD still have a read/write life :/

    Hosting providers do use the word 'unlimited' a lot since they usually assume that normal users will not have the need to consume a certain amount of data. As long as your service is running smoothly, you should not worry too much about it.

    It is pretty easy to make high storage with SSD drives. I saw offer with 24 x 500 and 24 x 1TB SSD. There nothing unlimited, because they will definitely kick you out of any reason if you overuse an "unlimited" disk space.

    A average Shared Hosting customer does not even use 2GB even if they have purchased a plan with 50GB or unlimited. But some also think "oh, its unlimited, i can host my porn site/image hosting site/file hosting site for a cheap price there"  Thats why they limit it in their ToS by saying "Media file storage not allowed".


    Its true, theres no such thing as unlimited and its a marketing term but those facts make it possible to offer it.

    SSD drives becomes cheaper and cheaper every month. It is very easy to build a 5 - 10TB SSD storage in any RAID level... but there nothing unlimited...

    It is not possible to sell unlimited SSD, have a look at terms and conditions, probably some low fair use policy or something like that.

    There really is no unlimited. If a host is marketing their specs as unlimited I would suggest going into their terms of service to see what their definition of unlimited is. Often times you will see its more limited than the ones that do not advertise as unlimited.

    There is no such thing as unlimited. They will clearly state the actual limits allowed in the Terms of Service. Coming back to your query, Yes many hosting companies have started to use SSD's as the prices have dropped quite significantly also higher capacity drivers are now coming to the market.

    there are no such things like unlimited..they mention as unlimited but they restrict after some moment..SSD pricing is a good deal more expensive than HDDs.

    Unlimited SSD disk space is not possible, therefore it's always recommended to avoid such web hosting provider, its nothing but trap for new users, so be careful.
