RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed faster than a hard disk drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to browse your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, since the information is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change based on what the some other clients on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even if you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server plans feature a set amount of RAM. Simply put, even when you use a small fraction of the system resources which your package comes with, we'll never allot the free resources to some other VPS account on the same physical server. As we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to guarantee the proper overall performance of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially at some time. When you also choose to upgrade your plan or to keep the active one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. Thus, we ensure that your Internet sites will function correctly constantly whatever the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Since we test each hardware component before we use it when we build a web server, we shall ensure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the machine runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available at all times, so even in times where you utilize only a part of it for a period of time, we shall never change the configuration. You will be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
