RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data 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 may use, the more apps you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to check out your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, as the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts are able to use may be limited and could change according to what the other customers on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you'll have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All of our VPS server packages include a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even in case you use only a fraction of the system resources your package deal includes, we shall never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical server. As we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to ensure the appropriate performance of all VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some point. In case you also decide to upgrade your package deal or to keep the present one and to include only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. Thus, we make certain that your web sites will function adequately all the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you need a highly effective hosting solution for your websites and applications and you purchase one of the dedicated servers we offer, you will have a massive amount of physical memory available constantly. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration at any time from your billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks comprehensively along with all of the other parts before we use them to put together any hosting server, so if you get one of our plans, you will get a high-quality hosting server that'll ensure exceptional performance for your Internet sites. Even if you don't use the full capacity of the machine for an extended time period, the physical memory will still be available for your web server only.
