RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that may be accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk drive, due to the fact that the information 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 after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you'll be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to browse your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, since the information is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and can change according to what the other customers on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you will have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server solutions include a set amount of RAM. Simply put, even when you use a tiny fraction of the system resources that your package deal features, we'll never allot the free resources to a different VPS account on the exact same physical hosting server. Since we set up only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have plenty of free memory to secure the correct operation of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some time. If you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the present one and to include just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we ensure that your web sites will operate properly all of the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
