RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed noticeably faster than a disk drive, simply because 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 when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you'll be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to browse your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s 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. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and may change based on what the some other clients on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you will have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by others even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you buy one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we construct a hosting server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the server runs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available all of the time, so even in times in which you employ merely a part of it for any period of time, we shall never change the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing CP.
