RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed much faster than a hard drive, simply because the data 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 apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to explore your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, as the info is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and may change based upon what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you shall have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you choose to host your sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on highly effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we won't assign the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your current account entirely. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or just the server’s RAM with simply several mouse clicks through the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need a highly effective website hosting solution for your websites and apps and you acquire one of the Linux dedicated service we offer, you will have a large amount of physical memory available all of the time. You'll be able to check out the hardware configuration whenever you want from the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks meticulously alongside the rest of the parts before we use them to build any hosting server, so in case you get one of our plans, you shall get a high-quality web server that will ensure outstanding efficiency for your sites. Even in case you don't use the total capacity of the hosting server for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your web server exclusively.
