RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much faster than a hard drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to explore your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, since the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and might change based on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by others even when you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
If you decide to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective 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 part of it at some time while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we will not allocate the free RAM from your account even momentarily. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your current account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole plan or just the server’s RAM with just a few mouse clicks through the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All our dedicated server plans come with a massive amount of physical memory, which will permit you to run very heavy web applications with no difficulties. We use brand new and extensively tested hardware components when we install a new server to guarantee that there won't be any complications of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you obtain a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration which you have picked out. Even if we determine that you're not using the full capacity of the hosting server, we won't alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be available will always be the same. You can take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
