RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed way quicker than a disk drive, due to the fact that the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you shall be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to explore your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and might change based upon what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by others even if you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server plans feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even if you use a small fraction of the resources which your package features, we will never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical web server. As we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have plenty of free memory to secure the correct functioning of all the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably at some point. In case you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the active one and to include only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we guarantee that your web sites will function effectively all of the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you need a highly effective web hosting solution for your websites and programs and you purchase one of the Linux dedicated servers that we offer you, you will have a large amount of physical memory available all the time. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration whenever you want via the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks thoroughly along with all of the other parts before we use them to put together any machine, so when you order one of our packages, you shall get a high-quality server that'll ensure superb efficiency for your Internet sites. Even in case you don't use the total capacity of the machine for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your hosting server exclusively.
