RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could 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 used to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to look through your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. In contrast to 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. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and may change based upon what the other customers on the same machine use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
The physical memory that you will get with every single virtual private server we offer you is guaranteed and shall be at your disposal always even when you do not use the whole thing for a long period of time. Each VPS account provides fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from the rest of the accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we won't assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, to guarantee that it will not run out of memory. In this way, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical web server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you need a powerful hosting solution for your sites and programs and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we provide, you will have a large amount of physical memory available all the time. You shall be able to look at the hardware configuration at any time through the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks meticulously alongside all the other parts before we use them to assemble any server, so if you get one of our plans, you will get a high-quality hosting server that will ensure remarkable efficiency for your sites. Even in case you don't use the entire capacity of the hosting server for an extended period of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your machine only.
