RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed faster than a hard disk, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to check out your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, since the info is lost once 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 can change according to what the some other clients on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with each and every VPS server we offer is guaranteed and will be available at all times even when you don't use the whole thing for a long time period. Every single VPS account features set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all of the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall never allot some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, as a way to guarantee that it won't ever run out of memory. In this way, there shall always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server that we offer you is large enough even for really resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be available for your websites and any software you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources that you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are tested before the hosting server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you shall get a flawlessly working hosting server that can ensure the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed with the full server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
