RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed much quicker than a disk drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to explore your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, since the information is lost when the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts may use may be limited and could change according to what the some other clients on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you'll have a set amount of RAM which won't 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 include a great deal of physical memory, that'll permit you to run really heavy web applications with no issues. We use new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we build a new server to ensure that there won't be any troubles of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you obtain a dedicated server, we'll make sure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration that you have picked. Even if we notice that you are not using the total capacity of the machine, we shall not modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be readily available shall always be the same. You may take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
