RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much more quickly than a disk drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more programs you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to explore your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost the moment the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts are able to use may be limited and might change according to what the some other clients on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM that will not be used by anyone else even if you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server solutions come with a great deal of physical memory, which will enable you to run incredibly heavy web apps without any challenges. We use brand-new and meticulously tested hardware components when we install a new server to ensure that there will never be any complications of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you get a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration which you have selected. Even if we determine that you're not using the whole capacity of the web server, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be readily available will always be the same. You can check the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
