RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed much more quickly than a hard disk drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you'll be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to browse your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost when the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and might change based upon what the other customers on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by others even when you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you decide to host your Internet sites on a VPS server bought from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use just a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we will not allocate the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your current account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire plan or only the server’s RAM with simply several mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with each and every dedicated server that we supply is sufficient enough even for very resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be readily available for your Internet sites and any software which you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the components are examined before the hosting server is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you'll get a flawlessly working server that will guarantee the best possible general performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed with the full server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
