RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that may be accessed considerably faster than a hard drive, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you'll be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to explore your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, since the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts are able to use may be limited and could change based on what the some other clients on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you will have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you obtain a VPS server from our company, you will have a set amount of RAM available at all times. We create the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with a lot of physical memory, so the moment a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is assigned completely to it as per the specific features of the particular package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that does not use all of its system resources to one that needs more resources, so you'll be able to use the functions of your plan at their full potential all of the time. We set up only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it includes sufficient memory to permit all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM that their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server we offer is big enough even for really resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and every other software that you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are tested before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly working hosting server that will ensure the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
