RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed faster than a hard drive, due to the fact that the information 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 applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you'll be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to check out your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, as the information is lost the moment the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts could use may be limited and may change based upon what the other customers on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even when you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server solutions feature a set amount of RAM. In other words, even in case you use only a tiny fraction of the resources which your plan comes with, we'll never assign the free resources to some other VPS account on the exact same physical web server. Due to the fact that we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have sufficient free memory to guarantee the correct operation of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some point. In case you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the latest one and to include only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we guarantee that your Internet sites will operate effectively at all times whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with every dedicated server we offer you is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be available for your sites and all other software which you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources which you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are tested before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly working web server that will guarantee the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
