The quality of the Internet hosting service that you will receive for your Internet sites will depend not only on the characteristics which a given plan contains, but also on the hardware your web apps run on. Increased CPU speeds, for instance, suggest that the processes running on the hosting server will be performed quicker, while additional physical memory (RAM) indicates that more processes can run simultaneously. The grade of the hardware may also have an effect on the overall performance and dependability of the server. Because the Internet hosting service nowadays includes not only file storage, but also databases, emails, logs, and many others, more processing power is required to run all the system processes and to make sure that they work effectively and without lag. In the event that the hardware is not powerful enough, the result will be slow sites and even service timeouts as the machine will not be able to manage all requests to the sites hosted on it.
