RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much more quickly than a hard drive, simply because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you'll be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to surf your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, since the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and can change based on what the other customers on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you shall have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
All of our dedicated server packages include a great deal of physical memory, which will allow you to run incredibly heavy web apps without any difficulties. We use brand-new and meticulously tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to make sure that there won't be any issues of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you get a dedicated server, we'll ensure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration that you have chosen. Even if we notice that you aren't using the entire capacity of the hosting server, we will never alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be readily available will always be the same. You can easily take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
