definitely SSD hards are more reliable for website hosting

The only advantage I can think of for HDDs is that you can get way more space for less cost.

It actually depends on the SSD, Controller, type of NAND, etc. SSDs are generally marketed by the number of drive-writes per day. Cheap/Consumer drives may have as low as 4% of a drive write per day - such as the Crucial M500 960GB drive - you can write 40GB/day to the drive to stay within it's expected life-cycle [72 TB over 5 years]

Higher end drives like the Intel DC S3750 1.6 TB drives can do 16 TB written *every day* for 5 years. [29,220 TB over 5 years]

Even a more apples-to-apples comparison of the DC S3700 800G drive - can do 8 TB/day and 14,610 TB over 5 years.

So yes - they can last longer - but just because they are SSD does not mean that they will.

I've had SAS15k drives that were running for 10+ years without failure that have read/written a lot of data. That said I didn't save those statistics so I can't quote them here.

Using it on a PC it will likely last far longer than in a server environment - especially a server environment where you're logging to those SSDs and writing every change to them.

HDD will become a thing of the past soon. Performance wise, SSD is the best choice.

SSD technology makes load speed much faster than HDD.

Just like hard drives, SSDs can wear out, though for different reasons. With hard drives, it’s often just the mechanical reality of a spinning motor that wears down over time. Although there are no moving parts inside an SSD, each memory bank has a finite life expectancy — a limit on the number of times it can be written to and read from before it stops working.

Prefer SSD drives, it's much faster than HDD, capable to perform up to 40 thousand read/write operations per 1 second, really high speed and good performance

SSD much faster than HDD due to rw permission and have high loading speed.
SSD have no moving part so have high performance compare to HDD.

In short SSDs for live environments and HDDs for everything else (mostly storage related).

Yes. SSD is the best choice over HDD. As it gives faster access so that programs run very quickly, no moving parts in SSD generates no noise and no heat generates as in HDD. Also it consumes less power compare to HDD. And very important is it uses flash memory so life of SSD is very long.
