RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that may be accessed considerably quicker than a disk drive, due to the fact that the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you will be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to browse your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, because the information is lost the moment the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and could change based upon what the other customers on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you will have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
When you decide to host your sites on a virtual private server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your current account fully. You will be able to upgrade either your entire plan or only the server’s RAM with just a few mouse clicks through the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
When you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Because we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we shall ensure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the server performs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available all of the time, so even in a situation where you use merely a part of it for any period of time, we won't modify the configuration. You'll be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing CP.
