RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed much faster than a hard disk drive, because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you'll be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to look through your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, since the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and can change depending on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you shall have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with each and every VPS server we offer is guaranteed and will be available constantly even when you do not use all of it for a long period of time. Each VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from the rest of the accounts on the physical web server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, so as to guarantee that it will never run out of memory. That way, there shall always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical web server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server plans include a great deal of physical memory, that'll allow you to run rather heavy web applications without any problems. We use brand new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we build a new hosting server to make sure that there will never be any problems of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you buy a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we determine that you're not using the full capacity of the machine, we shall not modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be at your disposal shall always be the same. You can easily look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
