RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed considerably faster 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 web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you'll be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to check out your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, since the data is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts may use may be limited and can change according to what the other customers on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
All our virtual private server solutions come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even if you use just a fraction of the system resources which your package deal includes, we will never allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the very same physical server. Due to the fact that we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have sufficient free memory to ensure the adequate operation of all the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically at some time. In the event you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the latest one and to add just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. That way, we make certain that your web sites will function properly at all times whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server that we provide is big enough even for really resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be available for your sites and all 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 system resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the parts are subjected to testing before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly operating web server that will ensure the best possible efficiency for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
