RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed noticeably faster than a hard drive, simply because the data 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 applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you'll be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to browse your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and might change based upon what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by others even if you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
The physical memory that you will get with every single virtual private server we offer is guaranteed and shall be readily available at all times even if you do not use all of it for a long stretch of time. Each and every VPS account offers you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we will 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, as a way to guarantee that it won't ever run out of memory. In this way, there shall always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you need a powerful web hosting solution for your websites and apps and you purchase one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages we offer, you shall have a substantial amount of physical memory available all the time. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration whenever you want through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks comprehensively alongside all the other parts before we use them to build any server, so in case you get one of our plans, you will get a high-quality server that'll guarantee outstanding general performance for your Internet sites. Even if you do not use the total capacity of the server for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory will still be available for your server only.
