RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed much quicker than a hard drive, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to look through your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, as the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change depending on what the other customers on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server packages come with a set amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even in case you use just a tiny fraction of the system resources which your package includes, we will never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the exact same physical server. As we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to ensure the appropriate operation of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably at some time. In the event you also choose to upgrade your plan or to keep the current one and to incorporate only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. This way, we make certain that your web sites will perform effectively at all times whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with every dedicated server that we provide is sufficient enough even for very resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your websites and any other software which you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the hosting server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you will get a flawlessly performing hosting server that will ensure the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
