RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed much quicker than a disk drive, simply because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you'll be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to surf your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, because the data is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and may change based upon what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM that won't be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
The physical memory that you will get with every single virtual private server
which we offer you is guaranteed and shall be readily available consistently even when you don't use it all for a long stretch of time. Every VPS account offers you set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all the other accounts on the physical machine, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we will never allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, as a way to ensure that it won't ever run out of memory. That way, there will always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
When you buy one of our dedicated server
solutions, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test each hardware component before we use it when we assemble a hosting server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the machine works flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available constantly, so even in a situation in which you use just a part of it for any period of time, we will never alter the configuration. You shall be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing Control Panel.
