RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk drive, simply because the information 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 applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you will be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to browse 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, since the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts may use may be limited and might change based on what the some other clients on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you will have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you choose to host your websites on a VPS server purchased from us, 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 created on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we will not allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your existing account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole plan or just the server’s RAM with only a couple of clicks through the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you need an effective hosting solution for your websites and applications and you buy one of the Linux dedicated servers which we provide you with, you shall have a substantial amount of physical memory available at all times. You'll be able to check out the hardware configuration anytime through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks diligently as well as all the other parts before we use them to build any server, so if you buy one of our solutions, you will get a high-quality hosting server that will ensure superb general performance for your Internet sites. Even in case you don't use the entire capacity of the server for an extended period of time, the physical memory will still be available for your machine exclusively.
