RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed way quicker than a hard disk drive, due to the fact that the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you shall be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to look through your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change according to what the other customers on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM that will not be used by others even if you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server solutions include a guaranteed amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even if you use just a small fraction of the system resources which your package deal includes, we will not allocate the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical hosting server. Since we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to secure the adequate operation of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously eventually. When you also decide to upgrade your package deal or to keep the current one and to include only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. That way, we ensure that your sites will operate correctly all of the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you buy one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Since we test each hardware component before we use it when we assemble a hosting server, we will make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the server functions flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available all the time, so even in times where you use only a part of it for any period of time, we will not change the configuration. You will be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, in the billing Control Panel.
