RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to surf your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, because the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and might change depending on what the some other clients on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you will have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by others even if you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server solutions feature a large amount of physical memory, that'll allow you to run really heavy web apps without any problems. We use brand-new and extensively tested hardware components when we set up a new server to ensure that there will never be any troubles of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you obtain a dedicated server, we'll make sure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration that you have picked. Even if we determine that you are not using the whole capacity of the hosting server, we will never alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be readily available shall always be the same. You will be able to check out the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
