RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk drive, because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to look through your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the information is lost the moment 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 could change based on what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you will have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
When you decide to host your websites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. That is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your current account fully. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with just a few clicks within the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you buy one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall performance 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'll ensure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the machine works flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available all of the time, so even in times where you employ just a part of it for a period of time, we shall never alter the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing Control Panel.
