RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed faster than a hard disk drive, as 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 can use, the more applications you will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to browse your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, because the information is lost when 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 depending on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with every single VPS server that we provide is guaranteed and shall be at your disposal constantly even when you don't use the whole thing for a long stretch of time. Every single VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from other accounts on the physical server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we won't allot some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, to ensure that it won't run out of memory. In this way, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server which we offer is big enough even for extremely resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your websites and any other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the parts are subjected to testing before the hosting server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you shall get a flawlessly operating server that will ensure the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed together with the full server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
