RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much quicker than a hard disk drive, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you will be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to check out your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts are able to use may be limited and could change based upon what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory that you will get with every single VPS server which we provide is guaranteed and shall be available constantly even when you do not use it all for a long length of time. Every VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we will never allot some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, to make sure that it will not run out of memory. This way, there'll always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Because we test every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we will make sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the hosting server runs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get will be available all the time, so even in times where you employ only a part of it for a period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You'll be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing Control Panel.
