RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed much quicker than a disk drive, due to the fact that the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to look through your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term 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 are able to use may be limited and can change based upon what the some other clients on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you shall have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server that we offer is big enough even for very resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be available for your websites and any other software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the parts are examined before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly working machine that will guarantee the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
