RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed way quicker than a disk drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you shall 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 performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, as the information is lost when the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and can change based upon what the some other clients on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you shall have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by others even when you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
When you buy one of our dedicated server plans, you will get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. Because we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we build a web server, we shall make sure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the web server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available at all times, so even in a situation in which you use just a part of it for a period of time, we will not change the configuration. You shall be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
