RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed considerably quicker than a hard disk, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to check out your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change depending on what the other customers on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server we provide is sufficient enough even for extremely resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be available for your Internet sites and every other software that you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the parts are tested before the hosting server is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly operating web server that will ensure the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
