RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed considerably quicker than a hard disk, as the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you'll 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. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, because the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and could change based on what the other customers on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you opt to host your Internet sites on a VPS server bought from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use a little part of it at some time while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount shall be added to your current account entirely. You will be able to upgrade either the entire plan or only the server’s RAM with a couple of clicks inside the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Because we test every hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we'll make sure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the web server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available all of the time, so even in a situation in which you utilize merely a part of it for a period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You'll be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, inside the billing CP.
