Think before using pirated or nulled scripts

Forbes publish6ed, ‘On average 30,000 new websites are hacked every day’. They have also mentioned, a huge percentage of websites among these fall in danger due to pirated applications. Mostly these are small business websites. The unwillingness of using the genuine copy of the application is the main reason for it. There have other reasons like coding error, weak password, and server misconfiguration as well.

Now, are you searching for a pirated web application? Stop and think twice before using pirated or nulled copy of any web application. It may create a serious security threat for your website. Your website can be affected by malware. We strongly recommend not to use any pirated or nulled script by any means.

Premium web applications by renowned companies offer premium services, and you need to purchase those by money. They monitor security measures and release updates regularly to ensure your website security. When you are using any pirated copy, you will miss their updates. Any backdated application is always a good target of hackers.

Almost every premium application issues a unique serial key for each customer. It is valid for one user/website only, or it depends on providers plans and offers. However, Someone might find a way to modify the script so that it could be used on multiple websites. Firstly, this is unethical and unlawful. Secondly, there have possibilities that the person who has cracked this can inject malicious code or backdoor into the application. This will put your website in danger.

Furthermore, An application without a regular update is like a flowless river. Most developers issue frequent updates. They improve application interface, add features, and patch security bugs. Using pirated applications means being limited and make yourself an easy target of hackers.

Premium applications and services require money. If you want to cut costs, you may try free or opensource applications. But using pirated applications and scripts means you are taking poison knowingly. Be aware of it.

Common types of hosting storage: HDD vs SSD

Mainly there are two different types of storage mostly used in hosting services. Hard Disk Drive (HDD) and Solid State Drive (SSD) both are technically different in access time, reliability, energy-saving, power-consuming, and cable management. They are also different structurally and obviously SSDs are more costly than HDDs.In SSD no mechanical or magnetic parts are involved in construction and operation where HDD store and process data through magnetic material called platter.

What is HDD?

HDD is known as magnet-based data processing and storing drive. Each data on HDD goes on metal disk first. The disk is mounted with a wheel that allows the disk to spin. HDD has also a ‘drive head’, a special kind of sensor which moves to find data. This sensor reads data and sends it to the processing unit as per demand.

This HDD is a modern form of floppy-disk technology. Both use the same type of magnetic disk technology to store and to serve data where floppy-disks are less efficient in quantity. The highest physical size of a floppy disk is 8 inches and it can store more or less 1.2 megabytes data in its’ one side. However, this is not fixed. These were very popular in the 1980s. Later HDD has set a benchmark in storing data.

What is SSD?

Solid State Drive (SSD) technology came to light in around 2009 and a dramatic change has started in the storage technology field. SSD uses memory chips instead of using magnetic parts to store data. Moreover, It does not use movable sensors to process and send data, rather it uses new technology. These chips are similar to the chips of Random Access Memory (RAM) or USB Storage. It saves time in locating data that gives the high-speed performance in both the computer and hosting server.

SSD is a costly technology but now manufacturers are trying to reduce its production cost as per consumers’ demand. Hosting service providers are moving to SSD storage technology to give a satisfying service to the consumers.

HDD vs SSD

  • SSD and HDD are different in access time. Generally SSD takes 0.1 ms to access data where HDD takes 5.5 to 8.0 ms to access. Moreover, SSD exhibits no access time virtually.
  • SSD is more or less 15 times faster than HDD. SSD delivers al least 6000 io/s where HDD reaches up to 400 io/s.
  • SSD is more reliable than HDD. SSD’s failure rate is less than 0.5%. On the other hand, the HDD’s failure rate fluctuates from 2% to 5%.
  • SSD is more energy-saving than HDD. It consumes 2 and 5 watts where HDD consumes 6 and 15 watts.
  • A more important feature of SSD is its capacity of using less CPU processes. It uses only 1% to process a singular data where HDD uses 7% of the process. Users will have an extra 6% of CPU power for other operations.
