RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed considerably faster than a hard disk, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to look through your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, because the data is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and can change according to what the other customers on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
All our virtual private server solutions come with a set amount of RAM. In other words, even when you use a small fraction of the resources that your package deal includes, we will never allot the free resources to some other VPS account on the same physical server. Due to the fact that we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to guarantee the correct overall performance of the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically at some point. When you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the present one and to include only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we make certain that your Internet sites will operate adequately constantly no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
All our dedicated server packages feature a great deal of physical memory, which will permit you to run really heavy web applications without any challenges. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we build a new web server to guarantee that there will not be any complications of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you acquire a dedicated server, we will make certain that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration you have selected. Even if we discover that you're not using the entire capacity of the server, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be at your disposal shall always be the same. You may check the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
