RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed way quicker than a hard disk drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you'll be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to check out your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, due to the fact that the information is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and could change based on what the other customers on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you shall have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
All of our dedicated server plans include a great deal of physical memory, which will permit you to run rather heavy web applications with no difficulties. We use new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we install a new hosting server to make sure that there will never be any complications of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you obtain a dedicated server, we'll make certain that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration that you have selected. Even if we find out that you aren't using the whole capacity of the server, we will not modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be available will always be the same. You can easily look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
