The quality of the web hosting service that you get for your Internet sites depends not only on the attributes that a particular plan includes, but also on the hardware your web apps work on. Higher CPU speeds, for instance, indicate that the processes running on the server will be performed faster, while extra physical memory (RAM) suggests that more processes can run concurrently. The grade of the hardware can also affect the general performance and dependability of the server. Since the Internet hosting service nowadays features not only file storage, but also databases, email messages, logs, and so on, more processing power is needed to run all the system processes and to ensure that they function properly and devoid of lag. In case the hardware is not powerful enough, the result will be sluggish Internet sites and even service timeouts as the machine will not be able to take care of all requests to the Internet sites hosted on it.
