RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk, simply because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you shall be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to explore your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, since the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and might change based upon what the some other clients on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you'll have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
The physical memory which you will get with each and every virtual private server that we provide is guaranteed and will be available constantly even if you don't use all of it for a long length of time. Each and every VPS account gives you set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from other accounts on the physical web server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall never allot some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, so as to ensure that it will not run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless operation of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server which we offer you is large enough even for very resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your Internet sites and any other software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources that you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the parts are tested before the server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you'll get a flawlessly performing server that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed with the full server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
