RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much quicker than a hard disk drive, simply because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to explore your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, since the information is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and could change based upon what the other customers on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even when you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
All our virtual private server packages feature a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even if you use a tiny fraction of the resources your package deal offers, we'll never assign the free resources to another VPS account on the exact same physical web server. Because we set up only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to secure the appropriate overall performance of the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly eventually. In case you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the active one and to include just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. This way, we ensure that your websites will perform correctly all of the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Due to the fact that we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a hosting server, we'll make sure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get shall be available all of the time, so even in times where you employ only a part of it for any given period of time, we will never change the configuration. You'll be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
