RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed much more quickly 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 applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you will be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to explore your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, because the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change based on what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you will have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by others even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
When you choose to host your sites on a virtual private server bought from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we shall not allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. That is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount shall be added to your current account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole package or just the server’s RAM with just several clicks in the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server we offer you is sufficient enough even for really resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be available for your sites and all other software that you install on the server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the parts are tested before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly functioning web server that can ensure the best possible general performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full web server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
