RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed much faster than a hard disk, as the information 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 apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to look through your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, as the info is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and may change depending on what the other customers on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by others even if you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server which we supply is sufficient enough even for really resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be readily available for your Internet sites and any software you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the web server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you shall get a flawlessly performing machine that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
