RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed noticeably faster than a hard drive, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you'll be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to surf your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, as the information is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts can use may be limited and can change based upon what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory which you will get with every VPS server that we offer you is guaranteed and shall be readily available all of the time even when you do not use it all for a long length of time. Each and every VPS account provides set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all the other accounts on the physical web server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we won't allot some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, to ensure that it will not run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical machine.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you purchase one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test each hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we will make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available constantly, so even in a situation in which you employ only a part of it for a period of time, we will not change the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing Control Panel.
