RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed faster than a hard disk drive, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you'll 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 functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, because the info is lost the moment the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and may change based on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Through 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 when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
The physical memory that you will get with each and every virtual private server we offer you is guaranteed and shall be at your disposal at all times even if you don't use it for a long stretch of time. Each VPS account provides set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we won't allot some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, as a way to make sure that it won't ever run out of memory. Thus, there'll always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical machine.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server that we offer you is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be readily available for your sites and every other software which you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the parts are examined before the machine is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you'll get a flawlessly operating hosting server that will guarantee the best possible efficiency for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
