RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed considerably quicker than a disk drive, simply because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you will be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to browse your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, because the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and could change depending on what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
The physical memory you will get with every virtual private server that we provide is guaranteed and will be readily available constantly even when you don't use all of it for a long time period. Every single VPS account offers you set system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we will never allocate some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, as a way to ensure that it will never run out of memory. That way, there'll always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical hosting server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you need a potent web hosting solution for your websites and apps and you acquire one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer, you will have a large amount of physical memory available at all times. You shall be able to look at the hardware configuration anytime through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks meticulously along with all the other parts before we use them to build any hosting server, so in case you get one of our solutions, you'll get a high-quality hosting server which will ensure excellent general performance for your websites. Even when you do not use the total capacity of the hosting server for an extended period of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your web server only.
