RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed way quicker than a hard disk, due to the fact that the info 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 applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to check out your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, since the info is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and could change based on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you will have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by others even when you don't use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server solutions feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even when you use just a small fraction of the system resources your package offers, we will not allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical server. Since we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have plenty of free memory to secure the proper functioning of all the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some time. If you also decide to upgrade your package deal or to keep the latest one and to include just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. In this way, we ensure that your websites will function adequately constantly whatever the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall performance of any of them. Because we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we set up a web server, we'll make certain that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the hosting server works flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available all the time, so even in times in which you use merely a part of it for any given period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You'll be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, in the billing Control Panel.
