RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that may be accessed much faster than a hard disk drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to surf your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, as the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and may change according to what the other customers on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM that won't be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you opt to host your sites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use a little part of it at some point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we shall not allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your existing account entirely. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire plan or only the server’s RAM with a few clicks in the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need a potent web hosting solution for your Internet sites and programs and you purchase one of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans which we offer you, you shall have a massive amount of physical memory available all the time. You'll be able to check out the hardware configuration whenever you want through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks meticulously along with all of the other parts before we use them to put together any web server, so when you purchase one of our solutions, you shall get a high-quality web server which will ensure exceptional efficiency for your websites. Even in case you don't use the entire capacity of the server for an extended period of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your web server exclusively.
