RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed considerably faster than a hard disk, simply because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications after 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 browse your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that 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 server, on the other hand, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server packages feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even if you use a small fraction of the resources which your package comes with, we will not allocate the free resources to another VPS account on the exact same physical web server. Due to the fact that we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to secure the adequate functioning of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially at some time. When you also opt to upgrade your plan or to keep the active one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. This way, we make sure that your web sites will perform properly all the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you buy one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. As we test every single hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we will make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the server works flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available all of the time, so even in a situation where you employ only a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never change the configuration. You shall be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing CP.
