RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed considerably quicker than a hard disk drive, due to the fact that the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to surf your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, because the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and could change according to what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All of our VPS server plans come with a set amount of RAM. Put simply, even in case you use just a tiny fraction of the system resources which your plan features, we shall never allocate the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical hosting server. As we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to ensure the proper operation of the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably at some time. When you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the latest one and to include just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. That way, we make sure that your Internet sites will operate properly all of the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server we offer you is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be readily available for your Internet sites and all other software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use a fraction of the resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the hosting server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly working machine that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed along with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
