RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed much faster than a hard drive, because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more programs you shall be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to look through your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, as the information is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts are able to use may be limited and might change according to what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you will have a guaranteed 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 Servers
When you obtain a VPS server from our company, you will have a allocated amount of RAM readily available at all times. We create the VPS accounts on effective hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so when a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allotted permanently to it as per the particular features of the particular package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that doesn't use all of its resources to one that requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the characteristics of your package deal at their full capability all of the time. We create just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it includes sufficient memory to enable all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM their servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server we supply is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be available for your sites and all other software you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the components are subjected to testing before the web server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly operating hosting server that will guarantee the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
