RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much quicker than a disk drive, due to the fact that the info 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 applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you will be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to check out your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, because the data is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts may use may be limited and can change depending on what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by anyone else even if you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you buy one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test each hardware component before we use it when we build a server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the machine performs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available constantly, so even in times where you use merely a part of it for a period of time, we will never change the configuration. You will be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing CP.
