RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed faster than a hard drive, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used 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 all at once and the more people will be able to browse your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary 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 your scripts could use may be limited and can change according to what the other customers on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server packages feature a set amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even in case you use a small fraction of the resources that your package deal features, we will not assign the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical server. Because we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have plenty of free memory to ensure the appropriate performance of the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly eventually. If you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the current one and to incorporate only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we make sure that your sites will perform correctly constantly regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server that we offer you is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be readily available for your websites and any software that you install on the server at all times, so if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly working hosting server that will guarantee the best possible general performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
