RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed faster than a hard disk, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to explore your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, because the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts are able to use may be limited and may change based upon what the other customers on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you shall have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you choose to host your Internet sites on a VPS server bought from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we shall not assign the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your existing account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or just the server’s RAM with just a couple of mouse clicks through the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server plans feature a massive amount of physical memory, that'll permit you to run extremely heavy web apps with no problems. We use new and carefully tested hardware components when we install a new web server to ensure that there will never be any complications of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you get a dedicated server, we will make certain that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration you have selected. Even if we identify that you are not using the full capacity of the server, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be at your disposal shall always be the same. You can easily check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
