RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed way quicker than a hard disk drive, as the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to browse your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, since the information is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts can use may be limited and can change according to what the some other clients on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you decide to host your websites on a VPS server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it at some point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we shall not assign the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount shall be added to your account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with a few mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Since we test every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available all the time, so even in times in which you employ merely a part of it for any given period of time, we will not change the configuration. You will be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing Control Panel.
