RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed faster than a hard disk, due to the fact that the data 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 when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more programs you will be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to explore your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and can change depending on what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you opt to host your Internet sites on a VPS server acquired from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use only a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we won't allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount shall be added to your existing account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with simply a couple of clicks through the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you buy one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Since we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we build a server, we will make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available all the time, so even in a situation in which you use only a part of it for a period of time, we will never change the configuration. You will be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing Control Panel.
