RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed considerably faster than a disk drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you will be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to explore your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, as the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and might change according to what the some other clients on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you will have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server plans come with a great deal of physical memory, which will allow you to run rather heavy web applications without any issues. We use brand new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we build a new server to make sure that there will never be any complications of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you order a dedicated server, we shall make sure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration that you have chosen. Even if we find out that you aren't using the whole capacity of the hosting server, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be available will always be the same. You can easily check out the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
