RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed considerably faster than a disk drive, as 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 will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to surf your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, because the information is lost when the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts may use may be limited and can change depending on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you will have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
All our virtual private server packages feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even in case you use only a fraction of the resources that your package deal includes, we will never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the exact same physical server. Since we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have ample free memory to ensure the appropriate functioning of all VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some point. In the event you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the current one and to incorporate only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved only for your account. In this way, we make certain that your sites will perform correctly constantly whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you need a potent website hosting solution for your websites and apps and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting we offer you, you'll have a substantial amount of physical memory available all the time. You shall be able to check out the hardware configuration at any time from the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks extensively alongside all the other parts before we use them to put together any machine, so if you order one of our packages, you will get a high-quality server that will guarantee exceptional efficiency for your websites. Even in case you don't use the entire capacity of the web server for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory will still be available for your web server only.
