RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed considerably faster than a disk drive, because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you will be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to explore your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the information is lost the moment the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and could change based upon what the other customers on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you will have a guaranteed 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 Web Hosting
The physical memory which you will get with each virtual private server we provide is guaranteed and will be available at all times even when you don't use it for a long length of time. Each VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all the other accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall never assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, in order to make sure that it won't run out of memory. In this way, there'll always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless operation of the physical hosting server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All of our dedicated server plans include a massive amount of physical memory, that will permit you to run rather heavy web applications without any problems. We use brand new and meticulously tested hardware components when we build a new web server to guarantee that there won't be any complications of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you get a dedicated server, we'll make sure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we discover that you're not using the total capacity of the machine, we won't alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be readily available shall always be the same. You can easily check the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
