RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed faster than a hard disk, because 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 programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you'll be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to browse your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts can use may be limited and might change depending on what the some other clients on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even when you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
If you get a virtual private server from our company, you will have a allocated amount of RAM readily available always. We create the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with plenty of physical memory, so as soon as a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allocated permanently to it as per the particular features of the particular plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which doesn't use all of its system resources to one which requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the features of your plan at their full capacity at any time. We set up just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it provides enough memory to allow all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM their servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM that comes with every dedicated server we supply is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be readily available for your websites and any other software which you install on the server at all times, so if at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are subjected to testing before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you shall get a flawlessly functioning web server that will ensure the best possible performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
