RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that may be accessed considerably quicker than a hard drive, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you shall be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to browse your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, as the data is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts are able to use may be limited and could change based upon what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM that will not be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you acquire a VPS server from us, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM at your disposal all the time. We create the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with a lot of physical memory, so as soon as a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is assigned permanently to it based on the exact features of the selected package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that does not use all of its system resources to one that requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the characteristics of your package at their full capacity at any time. We create only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it includes enough memory to allow all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM which their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server which we offer is large enough even for really resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your Internet sites and any other software that you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are subjected to testing before the machine is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you shall get a flawlessly performing web server that can guarantee the best possible general performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
