RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed much more quickly than a hard drive, because the info 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 apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to surf your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, since the data is lost as soon as 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 could change depending on what the some other clients on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by others even if you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
When you acquire a virtual private server from us, you'll have a set amount of RAM at your disposal constantly. We set up the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with lots of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is assigned entirely to it in accordance with the particular features of the selected package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which doesn't use all of its system resources to one which needs more resources, so you shall be able to use the characteristics of your package at their full potential at any time. We set up only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it has enough memory to permit all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM which their servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All our dedicated server plans include a large amount of physical memory, which will permit you to run really heavy web applications with no problems. We use brand new and extensively tested hardware components when we install a new hosting server to make sure that there will never be any troubles of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you purchase a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration you have selected. Even if we notice that you aren't using the entire capacity of the hosting server, we won't alter 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 out the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
