RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed much faster than a hard disk, due to the fact that the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to check out your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, because the data is lost once 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 might change based upon what the other customers on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server plans include a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even when you use only a tiny fraction of the system resources which your package deal comes with, we'll never allot the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical server. As we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have ample free memory to secure the proper functioning of all the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some time. If you also opt to upgrade your plan or to keep the latest one and to add just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. Thus, we make certain that your websites will operate adequately constantly no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server that we provide is sufficient enough even for very resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be readily available for your Internet sites and every other software you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use only a fraction of the resources that you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the parts are subjected to testing before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you'll get a flawlessly functioning web server that can guarantee the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed with the full web server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
