RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed much quicker than a disk drive, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you will be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to look through your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and can change based upon what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you will have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
If you obtain a virtual private server from our company, you shall have a allocated amount of RAM readily available all the time. We set up the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allocated completely to it in accordance with the exact features of the specific plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which doesn't use all of its resources to one which requires more resources, so you'll be able to use the functions of your package at their full potential all of the time. We create only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it has enough memory to permit all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM that their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
The amount of RAM that comes with each and every dedicated server that we offer is big enough even for really resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be available for your sites and any other software you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you'll get a flawlessly working web server that will guarantee the best possible performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed along with the full server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
