RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed faster than a disk drive, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to browse your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, because the info is lost the moment 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 depending on what the other customers on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by others even if you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
The physical memory which you will get with each virtual private server
that we provide is guaranteed and shall be readily available at all times even if you don't use the whole thing for a long length of time. Every VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall never 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, in order to make sure that it will never run out of memory. That way, there shall always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless operation of the physical machine.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
When you acquire one of our dedicated server
solutions, you will get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we'll make sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available constantly, so even in times where you employ only a part of it for any given period of time, we won't modify the configuration. You will be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing CP.
