RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed much faster than a disk drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to surf your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, since the info is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts are able to use may be limited and may change depending on what the some other clients on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you will have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS server from our company, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM at your disposal constantly. We set up the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so as soon as a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allotted entirely to it in accordance with the specific features of the specific package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which does not use all of its system resources to one that needs more resources, so you'll be able to use the characteristics of your package deal at their full capacity at any time. We set up only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it has an adequate amount of memory to enable all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM which their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need a powerful web hosting solution for your websites and programs and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated servers that we provide, you'll have a massive amount of physical memory available all of the time. You'll be able to see the hardware configuration anytime via the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks extensively as well as all of the other parts before we use them to assemble any server, so in case you buy one of our plans, you'll get a high-quality web server that'll guarantee remarkable overall performance for your sites. Even when you don't use the entire capacity of the machine for an extended amount of time, the physical memory will still be available for your web server only.
