RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed much quicker than a hard disk drive, simply because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to look through your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, because the data is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and might change according to what the some other clients on the same machine use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you will have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by others even if you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you opt to host your Internet sites on a VPS server purchased from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use a little part of it at some time while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we shall not allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your existing account completely. You will be able to upgrade either your entire plan or just the server’s RAM with simply a few mouse clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Since we test every hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we shall make sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the hosting server functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available constantly, so even in a situation where you employ only a part of it for any given period of time, we will never modify the configuration. You'll be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing CP.
