RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed considerably quicker than a disk drive, due to the fact that the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you'll be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to check out your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, since the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts could use may be limited and might change according to what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web 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 Servers
The physical memory which you will get with every single VPS server we offer is guaranteed and shall be at your disposal consistently even if you do not use all of it for a long stretch of time. Every VPS account offers you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we will never assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, so as to make sure that it won't ever run out of memory. In this way, there shall always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server plans feature a large amount of physical memory, which will enable you to run very heavy web applications without any challenges. We use brand new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we install a new web server to ensure that there will not be any problems of any type. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you obtain a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we discover that you aren't using the full capacity of the hosting server, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be available will always be the same. You can easily take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
