RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed noticeably faster than a disk drive, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you will be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to check out your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, since the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts could use may be limited and could change based upon what the other customers on the same machine use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All of our VPS server packages feature a set amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even in case you use a tiny fraction of the resources which your package features, we'll never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical hosting server. As we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to guarantee the adequate functioning of the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some point. If you also choose to upgrade your package deal or to keep the present one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. In this way, we make sure that your websites will operate effectively all of the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. As we test every hardware component before we use it when we build a web server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get will be available all of the time, so even in a situation in which you utilize merely a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never alter the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing CP.
