RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed noticeably faster than a disk drive, due to the fact that the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more programs you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to look through your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, because the information is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts could use may be limited and might change depending on what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server plans come with a large amount of physical memory, that will allow you to run really heavy web applications without any issues. We use new and meticulously tested hardware components when we set up a new web server to guarantee that there will never be any issues of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you obtain a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration which you have picked. Even if we notice that you're not using the whole capacity of the machine, we won't alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be available will always be the same. You will be able to check the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
