RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed way quicker than a disk drive, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you will be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to browse your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, as the information is lost when the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts may use may be limited and may change depending on what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you shall have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even if you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
If you acquire a virtual private server through us, you shall have a set amount of RAM readily available constantly. We set up the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with lots of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allocated permanently to it in accordance with the particular features of the specific package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which does not use all of its resources to one which requires more resources, so you'll be able to use the functions of your package at their full capability all of the time. We set up just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it has a sufficient amount of memory to permit all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM that their servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you buy one of our dedicated server plans, you will get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the machine performs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available constantly, so even in times where you utilize only a part of it for any period of time, we will not modify the configuration. You shall be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing CP.
