RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much more quickly than a hard disk, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to surf your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts are able to use may be limited and could change based on what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even if you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you opt to host your Internet sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we will not assign the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount shall be added to your account completely. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire package or just the server’s RAM with a couple of clicks inside the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server we supply is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be readily available for your Internet sites and any other software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use a fraction of the system resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are tested before the machine is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you will get a flawlessly performing server that will ensure the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
