RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed much faster than a hard disk drive, due to the fact that the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you will be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to surf your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, since the data is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and may change depending on what the some other clients on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you will have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
When you acquire a virtual private server through our company, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM at your disposal constantly. We set up the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so the moment a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allocated completely to it based on the specific features of the particular package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which does not use all of its resources to one which requires more resources, so you will be able to use the features of your package at their full capability all of the time. We create just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it includes a sufficient amount of memory to allow all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM their machines are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server which we offer is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and any software that you install on the web server at all times, so if at some point you use a fraction of the resources which you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the components are examined before the server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you shall get a flawlessly performing hosting server that will guarantee the best possible performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
