RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much more quickly than a disk drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to check out your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, since the data is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and might change based upon what the some other clients on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server plans feature a large amount of physical memory, that'll allow you to run incredibly heavy web applications with no difficulties. We use brand new and extensively tested hardware components when we install a new web server to make sure that there will not be any complications of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you obtain a dedicated server, we'll ensure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration which you have selected. Even if we identify that you aren't using the full capacity of the server, we will never alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be at your disposal shall always be the same. You can easily look at the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
