RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed much quicker than a hard disk, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you'll be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to surf your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, since the data 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 may change based upon what the some other clients on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
The physical memory that you will get with every virtual private server we offer you is guaranteed and shall be readily available constantly even if you don't use the whole thing for a long period of time. Every VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all the other accounts on the physical web server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we will never allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, to guarantee that it will never run out of memory. This way, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless performance of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you buy one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch hosting server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Due to the fact that we test every hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the machine runs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available all of the time, so even in times where you employ just a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never change the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing Control Panel.
