RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed faster than a hard drive, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to explore your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, since the info is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and can change depending on what the some other clients on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
All our virtual private server plans feature a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even when you use a small fraction of the system resources your package offers, we shall never assign the free resources to some other VPS account on the exact same physical web server. Due to the fact that we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have sufficient free memory to secure the proper performance of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some time. In case you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the current one and to include only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we make sure that your sites will operate adequately constantly no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
When you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Because we test every single hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the web server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available all the time, so even in times where you use just a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never alter the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
