RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you will be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to browse your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, because the info is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts could use may be limited and can change based on what the some other clients on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you will have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory that you will get with every VPS server that we provide is guaranteed and shall be available at all times even if you don't use all of it for a long stretch of time. Each VPS account gives you set system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from other accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we will never assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, in order to make sure that it won't ever run out of memory. In this way, there'll always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless functioning of the physical hosting server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Since we test every hardware component before we use it when we build a server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the web server performs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available constantly, so even in times where you utilize only a part of it for any given period of time, we will never modify the configuration. You'll be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing Control Panel.
