RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed much quicker than a hard disk, as the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to explore your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, since the info is lost once the power is shut off. When 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 web server, however, you will have a set 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 VPS Web Hosting
When you decide to host your sites on a virtual private server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we shall not allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your current account permanently. You will be able to upgrade either your entire package or just the server’s RAM with only a few clicks inside the billing CP.
