RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed noticeably faster than a disk drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to surf your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts could use may be limited and may change depending on what the other customers on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with every single VPS server which we provide is guaranteed and will be readily available at all times even if you don't use all of it for a long time period. Every VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allocate some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, to ensure that it won't run out of memory. This way, there'll always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless operation of the physical server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you will get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall performance of any of them. Since we test every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a hosting server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the web server functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available at all times, so even in a situation where you use just a part of it for any period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You will be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing Control Panel.
