RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much quicker than a hard drive, because 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 are able to use, the more programs you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to look through your 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, because the data is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts can use may be limited and may change depending on what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you'll have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory you will get with every VPS server we provide is guaranteed and shall be available consistently even when you do not use the whole thing for a long stretch of time. Every single VPS account offers you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all the other accounts on the physical web 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 whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, in order to ensure that it will not run out of memory. This way, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless functioning of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server that we supply is big enough even for extremely resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be readily available for your websites and all other software you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the components are tested before the hosting server is built, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you shall get a flawlessly operating hosting server that can ensure the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
