RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed noticeably faster than a hard drive, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to explore your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, as the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts can use may be limited and could change based upon what the some other clients on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by others even if you do not use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your Internet sites on a VPS server purchased from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on highly effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use just a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we won't assign the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your current account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with a few mouse clicks in the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server that we offer is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be readily available for your websites and all other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use a fraction of the system resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are subjected to testing before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you'll get a flawlessly performing web server that will ensure the best possible performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed with the full web server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
