RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed noticeably faster than a hard drive, simply because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more programs you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to browse your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, as the data 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 could use may be limited and can change based upon what the other customers on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you will have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by others even when you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you opt to host your websites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we shall not assign the free RAM from your account even briefly. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your existing account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with only a couple of mouse clicks through the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you buy one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Because we test every single hardware component before we use it when we assemble a server, we will make certain that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get shall be available all the time, so even in times in which you utilize only a part of it for any given period of time, we won't alter the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing CP.
