RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed considerably faster than a hard disk, because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to look through your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, since the info is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and could change based on what the other customers on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you will have a set 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 Servers

The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server that we supply is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be readily available for your websites and every other software you install on the server at all times, so if at some point you use a fraction of the resources that you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the parts are subjected to testing before the server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly functioning machine that will guarantee the best possible performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
