RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed considerably faster than a hard drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to check out your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts may use may be limited and can change depending on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by others even if you do not use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server packages include a guaranteed amount of RAM. In other words, even if you use just a fraction of the system resources your package deal comes with, we shall never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical hosting server. Since we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to guarantee the appropriate functioning of the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some time. In the event you also opt to upgrade your plan or to keep the latest one and to include just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. This way, we guarantee that your websites will operate properly all the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server we supply is sufficient enough even for extremely resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be available for your sites and all other software that you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the components are tested before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly performing server that will ensure the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed along with the full server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
