RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed faster than a hard disk drive, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to look through your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and can change based on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by others even when you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server plans come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use just a small fraction of the resources your plan comes with, we will never assign the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical server. Since we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have sufficient free memory to guarantee the appropriate functioning of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some point. In case you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the active one and to include only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we guarantee that your websites will perform effectively all the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server plans include a massive amount of physical memory, that will enable you to run extremely heavy web apps with no difficulties. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we set up a new server to guarantee that there won't be any issues of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you purchase a dedicated server, we'll make certain that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration which you have picked out. Even if we discover that you're not using the whole capacity of the machine, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM which will be at your disposal will always be the same. You will be able to check the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
