RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed much faster than a hard disk, as the information 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 programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you'll be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to check out your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, because the data is lost once 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 upon what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you get one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Since we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we set up a hosting server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the web server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available all of the time, so even in times where you utilize just a part of it for a period of time, we will never change the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, inside the billing CP.
