RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed considerably faster than a hard drive, due to the fact that the info 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 can use, the more apps you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to look through your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term 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 your scripts are able to use may be limited and may change according to what the other customers on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you shall have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by anyone else even if you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server packages include a set amount of RAM. Put simply, even if you use only a fraction of the resources that your plan offers, we'll never allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the exact same physical server. Since we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to guarantee the appropriate overall performance of all the 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 present one and to include just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. This way, we guarantee that your sites will perform adequately at all times whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server solutions include a large amount of physical memory, that'll permit you to run really heavy web apps with no issues. We use brand-new and extensively tested hardware components when we build a new server to guarantee that there won't be any issues of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you acquire a dedicated server, we'll make sure that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration that you have picked out. Even if we identify that you aren't using the entire capacity of the server, we will never alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be available shall always be the same. You will be able to take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
