RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk, as the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to look through your Internet sites 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, because the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and can change based upon what the some other clients on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server solutions feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even if you use just a tiny fraction of the system resources which your package offers, we will not assign the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical web server. Due to the fact that we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have plenty of free memory to secure the appropriate functioning of all VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically at some time. In case you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the current one and to include just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. Thus, we guarantee that your sites will perform correctly all the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you acquire one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we build a server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the machine runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available all the time, so even in a situation where you use merely a part of it for a period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You will be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing CP.
