RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed much faster than a hard drive, due to the fact that the information 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 when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you will be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to browse your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, since the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts could use may be limited and could change based on what the other customers on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you'll have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
The physical memory you will get with every virtual private server that we provide is guaranteed and shall be readily available always even if you don't use it for a long length of time. Every VPS account offers you set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all of the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allot some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, to ensure that it will not run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless overall performance of the physical web server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server which we offer you is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your websites and any software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the components are tested before the web server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you'll get a flawlessly functioning hosting server that can ensure the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
