RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed much faster than a hard disk, simply because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to explore your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, because the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and may change based upon what the other customers on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you'll have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by others even if you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you choose to host your sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use only a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your existing account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire package or just the server’s RAM with just a couple of clicks within the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you shall get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall performance of any of them. Due to the fact that we test every single hardware component before we use it when we build a server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the hosting server performs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available constantly, so even in times where you employ just a part of it for any given period of time, we will not change the configuration. You shall be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
