RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much more quickly than a hard drive, as the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs after 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 with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, as the data is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and might change based upon what the some other clients on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even if you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server plans include a great deal of physical memory, which will allow you to run rather heavy web applications without any difficulties. We use new and carefully tested hardware components when we build a new web server to ensure that there won't be any issues of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you purchase a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration which you have picked out. Even if we discover that you are not using the entire capacity of the server, we shall not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM which will be readily available shall always be the same. You will be able to check out the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
