RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that may be accessed considerably quicker than a hard drive, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to browse your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, as the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and may change according to what the some other clients on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you will have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
All our virtual private server solutions feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use a small fraction of the system resources which your package features, we'll never allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the exact same physical web server. Due to the fact that we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have sufficient free memory to ensure the adequate performance of all the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially at some point. In the event you also choose to upgrade your package deal or to keep the active one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. This way, we make sure that your web sites will operate properly at all times no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server that we offer is sufficient enough even for really resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your websites and every other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use a fraction of the system resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are examined before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly working machine that can ensure the best possible performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
