RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed noticeably faster than a hard drive, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to surf your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, because 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 may 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 hosting server, on the other hand, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you acquire a VPS server through us, you'll have a allocated amount of RAM readily available always. We set up the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so as soon as a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allotted completely to it in accordance with the particular features of the specific plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which does not 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 capability at any time. We set up only a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it has a sufficient amount of memory to allow all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM that their machines are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server solutions come with a large amount of physical memory, which will enable you to run very heavy web apps with no challenges. We use brand new and extensively tested hardware components when we install a new hosting server to guarantee that there won't be any problems of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you order a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration that you have selected. Even if we find out that you aren't using the full capacity of the server, we will not modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be readily available will always be the same. You may check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
