RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed considerably quicker than a hard disk drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a 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 programs you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to explore your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, as the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts may use may be limited and could change according to what the some other clients on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you shall have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you choose to host your sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use only a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your current account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole plan or just the server’s RAM with only several mouse clicks in the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server solutions feature a large amount of physical memory, that will permit you to run incredibly heavy web applications without any problems. We use brand new and meticulously tested hardware components when we set up a new server to make certain that there won't be any problems of any type. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you purchase a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration which you have picked. Even if we find out that you are not using the whole capacity of the web server, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be readily available shall always be the same. You can easily look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
