A Solid-State Drive (SSD) uses a data storage technology that provides dramatic improvement in the speed at which data is stored and retrieved from a storage device, as compared to classic magnetic hard disk drives (HDD).

The support staff here at Webnames.ca has witnessed first hand the rise of WordPress’ popularity over the last few years. More and more, customers are asking if our hosting plans support WordPress, wanting to know how to install it, or even just wanting to know whether we think WordPress is the right solution for their website needs.
