RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed faster than a hard disk drive, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to check out your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, since the info is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts may use may be limited and could change based on what the other customers on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
All of our virtual private server packages include a set amount of RAM. In other words, even in case you use a small fraction of the system resources that your plan includes, we will not assign the free resources to some other VPS account on the exact same physical hosting server. Since we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have sufficient free memory to ensure the appropriate functioning of all the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially at some point. If you also choose to upgrade your plan or to keep the latest one and to add just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. That way, we make certain that your Internet sites will perform effectively all the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All our dedicated server packages include a great deal of physical memory, that will permit you to run very heavy web apps without any difficulties. We use new and carefully tested hardware components when we build a new web server to make certain that there will not be any troubles of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you acquire a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration you have picked out. Even if we identify that you're not using the full capacity of the machine, we won't alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be readily available shall always be the same. You may take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
