RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed much quicker than a hard disk drive, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to surf your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, as the info is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and might change depending 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 that won't be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private server from us, you shall have a allocated amount of RAM at your disposal always. We set up the VPS accounts on highly effective hardware nodes with a lot of physical memory, so the moment a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is assigned entirely to it in line with the specific features of the particular plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which doesn't use all of its resources to one which requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the features of your plan at their full potential all of the time. We set up only a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it comes with a sufficient amount of memory to enable all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM which their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server we supply is big enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be readily available for your Internet sites and all other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so even when at some point you use a fraction of the resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the parts are tested before the machine is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly operating hosting server that can ensure the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
