RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that may be accessed much faster than a hard disk drive, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to browse your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost the moment the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts may use may be limited and can change based upon what the other customers on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you shall have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you opt to host your Internet sites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your current account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire package or just the server’s RAM with only a couple of mouse clicks in the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server we provide is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be available for your sites and every other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the components are tested before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you will get a flawlessly performing web server that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
