RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed considerably faster than a hard disk, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you'll be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to browse your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, as the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and might change depending on what the other customers on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even if you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you opt to host your websites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we shall not allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your existing account entirely. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire plan or just the server’s RAM with just a few mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need a potent web hosting solution for your websites and apps and you acquire one of the dedicated servers that we offer, you shall have a massive amount of physical memory available all of the time. You shall be able to check out the hardware configuration anytime through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks meticulously along with all the other parts before we use them to assemble any hosting server, so in case you buy one of our packages, you will get a high-quality server which will guarantee excellent performance for your Internet sites. Even if you don't use the total capacity of the hosting server for an extended period of time, the physical memory will still be available for your machine exclusively.
