RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed faster than a hard drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs once 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 will be able to look through your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, as the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change according to what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you'll have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by others even when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server solutions feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even if you use only a fraction of the system resources that your package deal features, we will not assign the free resources to some other VPS account on the same physical web server. Because we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have sufficient free memory to secure the adequate performance of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some time. If you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the latest one and to include just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. That way, we make sure that your Internet sites will operate effectively all the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Due to the fact that we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the hosting server functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available at all times, so even in a situation in which you use merely a part of it for a period of time, we won't change the configuration. You will be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing Control Panel.
