RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that may be accessed faster than a disk drive, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you'll be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to surf your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change based upon what the some other clients on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you will have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
The physical memory that you will get with each virtual private server that we offer you is guaranteed and will be available always even when you do not use all of it for a long stretch of time. Each VPS account offers set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all of the other accounts on the physical server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allot some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, in order to make sure that it won't ever run out of memory. Thus, there'll always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless operation of the physical machine.
