RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed faster than a hard drive, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to surf your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, because the information is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts can use may be limited and could change based upon what the other customers on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS server from us, you'll have a set amount of RAM readily available constantly. We create the VPS accounts on effective hardware nodes with a lot of physical memory, so as soon as a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allocated completely to it in accordance with the particular features of the selected package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that does not use all of its system resources to one which requires more resources, so you'll be able to use the characteristics of your plan at their full capacity at any time. We set up only a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it provides an adequate amount of memory to allow all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM that their machines are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you need a highly effective website hosting solution for your sites and programs and you buy one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we offer you, you'll have a great deal of physical memory available all the time. You shall be able to look at the hardware configuration anytime from your billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks comprehensively along with the rest of the parts before we use them to build any web server, so when you buy one of our plans, you'll get a high-quality server which will ensure superb functionality for your Internet sites. Even in case you don't use the full capacity of the server for an extended amount of time, the physical memory will still be available for your web server exclusively.
