The quality of the Internet hosting service that you get for your websites will depend not only on the characteristics which a particular plan contains, but also on the hardware your web apps run on. Higher CPU speeds, for example, suggest that the processes running on the server will be carried out a lot quicker, while additional physical memory (RAM) means that more processes can run together. The grade of the hardware may also have an impact on the general performance and dependability of the server. Because the web hosting service these days includes not only file storage, but also databases, email messages, logs, and many others, extra processing power is necessary to run all of the system processes and to ensure that they function correctly and devoid of lag. If the hardware is not powerful enough, the result will be slower sites and / or even service timeouts because the machine may not be able to manage all requests to the Internet sites hosted on it.
