RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed much more quickly than a hard drive, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to browse your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, because the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change based on what the some other clients on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you shall have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by others even when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server plans include a great deal of physical memory, which will allow you to run really heavy web applications with no issues. We use brand-new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to make certain that there will not be any troubles of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you order a dedicated server, we shall make certain that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration that you have picked out. Even if we notice that you aren't using the whole capacity of the web server, we will not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be at your disposal will always be the same. You can easily take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
