RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much more quickly than a hard disk drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you shall be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to check out your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, since the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and may change based on what the other customers on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you shall have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with each VPS server we provide is guaranteed and shall be readily available always even if you do not use it all for a long length of time. Every VPS account provides set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all of the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall never assign some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, in order to guarantee that it will not run out of memory. In this way, there shall always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical web server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server that we supply is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be readily available for your sites and any software that you install on the server at all times, so even when at some point you use only a fraction of the resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the hosting server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you will get a flawlessly functioning hosting server that will guarantee the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed together with the full server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
