RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed much faster than a hard disk drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to look through your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, as the information is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and may change according to what the some other clients on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
When you choose to host your sites on a virtual private server purchased from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we'll never assign the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your account completely. You will be able to upgrade either the whole plan or just the server’s RAM with several mouse clicks inside the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you need a powerful website hosting solution for your Internet sites and programs and you get one of the Linux dedicated hosting services which we provide you with, you shall have a great deal of physical memory available at all times. You will be able to see the hardware configuration anytime from the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks thoroughly as well as all the other parts before we use them to assemble any server, so if you purchase one of our plans, you'll get a high-quality server that will ensure superb overall performance for your Internet sites. Even in case you do not use the whole capacity of the hosting server for an extended time period, the physical memory will still be available for your web server only.
