RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed much more quickly than a hard disk, simply because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you will be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to explore your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, because the info is lost the moment the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and might change according to what the other customers on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
All our virtual private server solutions come with a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use only a tiny fraction of the system resources which your package deal comes with, we will not allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the very same physical web server. Since we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have sufficient free memory to secure the adequate performance of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some point. In the event you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the current one and to include only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. In this 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 Web Hosting
When you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you shall get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. As we test every single hardware component before we use it when we set up a server, we will make sure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the machine runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available all the time, so even in a situation where you utilize merely a part of it for a period of time, we will not modify the configuration. You'll be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing CP.
