RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed much quicker than a hard disk, simply because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps 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 explore your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, as the info is lost once 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 could change based upon what the some other clients on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM that will not be used by others even if you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
All of our dedicated server packages feature a large amount of physical memory, which will allow you to run very heavy web apps without any difficulties. We use brand-new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we build a new web server to guarantee that there will not be any problems of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you get a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration you have chosen. Even if we discover that you are not using the total capacity of the machine, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be at your disposal shall always be the same. You may take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
