RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much quicker than a hard drive, due to the fact that the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more programs you'll be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to check out your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, as the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts may use may be limited and could change depending on what the some other clients on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server plans feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. In other words, even if you use just a tiny fraction of the resources that your package deal features, we'll never allot the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical web server. Since we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to guarantee the proper functioning of all VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some time. In case you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the active one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. Thus, we ensure that your web sites will perform properly constantly whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server solutions come with a great deal of physical memory, that will permit you to run rather heavy web applications without any challenges. We use new and extensively tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to make certain that there will never be any complications of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you obtain a dedicated server, we shall make sure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration you have chosen. Even if we find out that you are not using the entire capacity of the machine, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be readily available shall always be the same. You will be able to check out the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
