RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed much faster than a hard disk drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to browse your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, as the info is lost when the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and can change depending on what the some other clients on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by others even when you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you obtain a VPS server from our company, you shall have a allocated amount of RAM at your disposal all the time. We set up the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with lots of physical memory, so when a new virtual server is created, the RAM is assigned entirely to it based on the specific features of the particular plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that does not use all of its resources to one that needs more resources, so you'll be able to use the features of your plan at their full potential at any time. We set up only a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it has an adequate amount of memory to allow all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM which their machines are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server packages come with a great deal of physical memory, that'll enable you to run rather heavy web applications without any problems. We use new and carefully tested hardware components when we install a new hosting server to ensure that there will not be any complications of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you order a dedicated server, we'll make sure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration that you have selected. Even if we discover that you are not using the full capacity of the machine, we will not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be readily available shall always be the same. You can easily look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
