RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed way quicker 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 employed to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you will be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to explore your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, since the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and might change depending on what the some other clients on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory which you will get with every single VPS server which we offer you is guaranteed and will be readily available consistently even when you don't use it all for a long length of time. Each and every VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall never allocate 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, to ensure that it will not run out of memory. In this way, there shall always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical web server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server that we provide is big enough even for very resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your Internet sites and any other software which you install on the server at all times, so even when at some point you use just a fraction of the resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the machine is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you'll get a flawlessly working server that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
