I wan to have a comparison if all other things being equal ( traffic/CPU/images/content,... etc ) on 2 websites then

Hosting Company A:
2GB RAM, 50GB SSD , VPS

Hosting Company B:
16 GB RAM, 70 GB HDD , VPS

the page speed is the most critical factor for me and I read SSD are upto 30% faster than HDD? but how in this case if I have more RAM but with HDD?

Any insights would be highly appreciated. Thank you very much.

Having SSD is always a better option as long as speed is concerned.

SSD is always better than normal Sata HDD. So Go for it whenever possible..

But the SSD plan you mentioned in having too low memory. If you can get a upgrade of memory for that plan to say 4 G that will be best one.

2 G SSD cant be compared with 16 G HDD when it comes with the memory usage.

If you jsut want to compare quality between ssd and hdd, SSD is the only answer. Rest depends on the number of sites you are planning to incorporate, how much you can afford as SSD servers are always costlier than normal HDD.

You have to consider the load also, if you just put one website on A then your faster, if your seo is correct, lost of factors involved, just be glad for high speed internet as today lost of sites are loading under 4 seconds, do you remember 56K modems.

You should go with SSD Option unless your website needs more RAM. If it's for a Single Website, you should go with SSD one !

If there is no RAM bottleneck, go for the SSD !

A lot of other factors like if the host is overselling a lot etc ( as you might be fighting a lot for CPU share ). If you're lacking in the CPU department, your RAM usage can balloon up and vice versa. May I also ask, are they offering OpenVZ or KVM VPS?

Consider SSD more as there are caching technologies frameworks used to give full uptime and good user experience. You can upgrade the RAM if you need it.
