RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed way quicker than a hard disk, because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to look through your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, because the information is lost the moment the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts are able to use may be limited and may change according to what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even if you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. Since we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we construct a hosting server, we will make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the machine runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get shall be available all the time, so even in a situation in which you employ merely a part of it for any period of time, we will never modify the configuration. You will be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
