RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed faster than a hard drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you shall be able to run all at once 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 employed for short-term storage purposes, since the information is lost the moment the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and could change depending on what the some other clients on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you will have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by others even when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The amount of RAM that comes with every dedicated server we supply is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be available for your Internet sites and all other software you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the parts are subjected to testing before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you shall get a flawlessly performing web server that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
