RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much faster than a hard disk, due to the fact that the info 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 when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to look through your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, since the data is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and may change based on what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even if you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server
solutions feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. In other words, even in case you use just a small fraction of the resources your package comes with, we shall never allot the free resources to another VPS account on the exact same physical web server. As we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have plenty of free memory to guarantee the proper functioning of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some time. When you also decide to upgrade your package or to keep the latest one and to add only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. This way, we make sure that your websites will perform adequately all of the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of our dedicated server
plans, you shall get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. As we test every single hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the server functions flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available constantly, so even in times in which you utilize only a part of it for any period of time, we will not change the configuration. You shall be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing CP.
