RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed much quicker than a disk drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you will be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to browse your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, since the data is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and may change according to what the some other clients on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
All of our virtual private server plans come with a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use a tiny fraction of the resources your package deal comes with, we will not allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the exact same physical server. Because we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to guarantee the adequate performance of all VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some point. When you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the current one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. Thus, we make certain that your Internet sites will function effectively at all times whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
All of our dedicated server packages come with a massive amount of physical memory, which will permit you to run rather heavy web applications with no challenges. We use brand-new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we set up a new server to make sure that there will never be any complications of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you order a dedicated server, we shall ensure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration that you have picked. Even if we determine that you're not using the full capacity of the hosting server, we will not modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be available will always be the same. You are able to check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
