RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much more quickly than a hard disk, because the data 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 apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you shall be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to check out your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, as the data is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and might change according to what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you shall have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
The physical memory that you will get with every virtual private server
we offer is guaranteed and will be readily available constantly even if you don't use it for a long period of time. Each VPS account provides fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from the rest of the accounts on the physical hosting server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we will never assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, in order to guarantee that it will never run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you need a highly effective hosting solution for your Internet sites and apps and you purchase one of the dedicated servers hosting packages
that we provide, you'll have a great deal of physical memory available all the time. You will be able to check out the hardware configuration at any time via the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks comprehensively as well as all the other parts before we use them to assemble any machine, so when you order one of our plans, you'll get a high-quality web server that will ensure excellent efficiency for your sites. Even when you don't use the total capacity of the machine for an extended period of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your hosting server exclusively.
